Windows 7: Forgot Administrator Account

Forgot Administrator Account

Hey there!

Thanks for dropping by, i'm new here...

By the way, i just wish that you guys can help me in this troubled times, it's about my OS, which is of course, Windows 7. I actually stupidly forgot the password i have set for the administrator account. It's not the Administrator itself, but a personalized Administrator account.

I'm currently using a non-admin account to use my Laptop. And still finding ways on how to deal with this idiocy of mine, i just wished you guys could help me out on this, i've got tons of important files i cannot delete... I just wished Reformatting is out of the options you guys can give me...

i tried using password retrievers and such, but they still need permission from my personalized admin account in order to use them. *sigh*

Thanks in advanced!

Might be a bit difficult to enable the administrator account when you only have access to a guest or limited account unless you choose option 4

Did you even bother to READ the linked thread? Scroll down to where is says Option Four.

Sorry sorry... I got it! Anyways i think the 2nd method in option 4 would work for me, since that it only gave me an "Access Denied" messages on the first one.
