I have windows xp home edition, I have no password of my knoledge.
i have lost administrative privileges. Please, help.
There are many password reset tools, but I haven't personally tested them. Windows Password Recovery Basic is a widely spread edition though...
Once reboot the computer with CD/DVD/USB, remove the lost or forgotten password and then log in to your computer without any password.
Here is its official website, Hope it helps
after you change the administrative privileges to a certain account, will you still need a the password to access that account? because i have only one account but no administrative password so i don't want to do all of this to find i can't use my account at all. also you said you pressumed that we would have our administrative password already, why did you assume this? should we have been given it before on a piece of paper or something?
I cannot boot into XP safe mode now that I have dual-boot system with 7. It automatically boots into 7. How can I get the safe mode boot to stop and ask me which system I want for safe mode?
Also, I never used any password for any user including the administrator. Will that affect how I can use admin privileges?
it said access denied.I've can't find any administrative account
