unable to logon as administrator RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello to all. I am unable to logon on my administrator profile (logon failed) both normally or in safe mode. I have no problem to log on on the other profiles (non-administrator). I am running on vista home premium. all solutions seem to require to logon with an administrator profile which obviously I cannot do at this moment. I would appreciate any kind of help!

  • Hi,

    For me it sounds like you forgot your password to that account. Unless you created a password recovery disk, there is no supported way from microsoft to get i back.

    How ever, if you seach the internet how to recover passwords, i'm pretty sure something will show up.

    Alternative, if you have other priviliged users, you may be able to reset the password.
