    • Bypass XP Password
    • Many times you cannot boot into normal Windows mode because of wrong user password, you can start Windows XP in safe mode and login the default admin account to bypass other user password.

    Forgot Windows 7 Password? Do you know how to reset Windows 7 password? As we know, Win7 is now more and more popular. We know how to reset vista password and the method of Vista Password Recovery.

  • Clogcat- you are logging in with a wrong password. windows update will not change the account password in any case.

  • I have never set a password on this computer...  but even so, I tried every password that I had ever used and nothing worked.  I did have to go into safe mode to fix it.  But thanks anyway!  :)
