Specs: Windows 7
can't be loaded. As administrator no idea what my windows password is, have tried everything. My wife also has this message when she logs on, only been able to access laptop through a guest account, if we lose this we can't use laptop. Unfortunately haven't backed up so no rescue disc and all photos and docs on adminstrator log on.

Normally, I wouldn't be willing to help you bypass security on a computer, however, it seems as though this problem is super common through the posts I have seen.

This in theory might get you where you need to be, unless someone already secured the built in administrator account with a password.

First log into safe mode with command prompt
Then at the prompt type
net user administrator /active:yes [press Enter]
net user administrator password 1234 [enter]

This in theory would allow you to log in with administrator and 1234 as user and password next time you log in.

From there you will have to choose the best option to fix the profile
I would just do a new account:

Many thanks for this advise Mike, however f8 doesn't work on this laptop, so tried msconfig option, but this requires the administrator password to continue which we don't have so can't access safe mode. Have tried repeatedly holding f8 down and then continuously as windows starts up but it just goes into the Guest account!

Forced option

open the command window

Safe Mode with Command Prompt: bcdedit /set {default} safeboot minimal
bcdedit /set {default} safebootalternateshell yes

Tips: Be sure to type whatever command you choose exactly as shown and then execute it using the Enter key. Spaces are very important! The { and } brackets are the ones above the [ and ] keys on your keyboard. Two separate commands are required to start Safe Mode with Command Prompt so be sure to execute them both.

from there you should be able to run the other commands.


you may need to use this to exit the loop
bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot

Hi Mike
Tried the above in Command Prompt, message read" The boot configuration data store could not be opened" Access denied!!
Thanks anyway, i'll need to take the laptop to an IT specialist to do this for me when i go back to the UK!

I suppose you could do a fresh install, or a recovery of data using a Linux disk.

on my pc i have to use F5 to get into safe mode, no idea why as i have always used F8, but once the F5 menu appears i have to then hit F8 to load the Advanced Boot Options screen,. You could give that a try too.
