    Question Cant log on as administrator

    For some reason I cant log in as admin on my windows 7 machine. Anyone got any working links to software that has been mentioned in other threads? Would be better for me if I could reset the password, re installing windows will be a ball ache!
    Thanks.

    Default Re: Cant log on as administrator

    Ophcrack Live CD - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    or

    Hirens Boot CD - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - This one has loads of useful tools on it and is definately worth keeping.

    I'd be curious to know why you can't login as local admin all of a sudden.

    Thanks to AP0ll0UK

    Use 'Offline NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 Password Changer' which is on Hiren's Boot CD as Ap0ll0uk has linked to above. You will be given the option to change the password to something new or just to blank it, then you can obviously log on and change it in Windows as per normal.

    I set up another user (my son ) so he could login and play games, not as admin tho. So I havnt used it for months. One day after trying to log on, i kept getting the wrong password message.

    btw system restore wont work either, so i fear the worst.

    Thanks for the links...
