    Try to log into guest account. You should be able to log in unless you disabled guest account. Otherwise try safe mode once there go to control panel then user accounts & change your password.  If that doesn't work & you have the Windows Cd just reinstall the Windows. If you don't have the Windows Cd then bad

    I have  downloaded Windows Password Recovery Tool 2.0 from  It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive do this.

    One of the quickest and easiest ways to reset a windows password is to download a Linux Live Cd that has chntpw on it.

    By using chntpw, you won't be able to see your old password, but you can disable it or reset it.

    SYSRescue CD has chntpw on it:

    Giving passwords to computers should be avoided. James bond style computers have self destruction systems, if the password is incorrect.
