Hi I have a windows 7 starter and forgot a user password. I know the admin password but I cannot see Administrator so I can use it to logon.

You need to enable the admin account, not sure if this works on Starter.

1. Open a command prompt, but choose to run it as administrator.
2. Type and then enter .. net user administrator /active:yes
3. Logoff and you should see an admin account picture
4. Do what you need to do as admin.
5. Login as user.
6. Open a command prompt, but choose to run it as administrator.
7. Type and then enter .. net user administrator /active:no

Leaving the admin account active is a big secuirty risk.
