Also, when you want to enhance the security of your system, you might want to reset the password to something that is too strong to be hacked. Sometimes password expires. In all these cases, you need to reset the password.
Reset password in safe mode
Generally, the Administrator account doesn’t have password. Start the system and run in safe mode. To do this, press ‘F8’ as soon as you boot the system. You can find all the user account names in the starting screen. Login as Admin and type no password. Now you have successfully logged in. Go to the ‘User Settings Control Panel’. Here you can reset the password for your user account and login the next time as that user.
Start your system in safe mode. In this mode, as mentioned earlier, you will be able to login as Admin. The screen will appear different from the normal. Go to ‘Start’, click ‘Run’. In the bar that appears type ‘control userpasswords2’ (without the quote). Now you can reset the password for any user account and you can also reset the password for Administrator account. Now shut down the system and login in normal mode using the reset password.
