  1. what operating system?
  2. As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
    1st Method:
    Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
    Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
    Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
    2th Method:
    Windows password reset software:
    for example:Windows Password Reset. It is easy and convenient to use.

  4. What type of problem is faced by you? Are these factors satisfactory to you? Please explain me these in detail?

  6. start > cmd > net user administrator *

    This should allow you to reset the password of the local administrator.
