Bypassing administrator password on Windows 7?
« on: January 26, 2012, 05:45:27 am »
This is going to sound extremely stupid but..
When I was upgrading my computer I changed the password.. I ended up forgetting it and ive been locked out of admin for a month now.. I'm using a different account that does not have any privileges the admin does.. and now i need them.. Anyone know how to bypass it or anything i can do to get the account back?

I've tried CMD net user administrator *
but the following comes up: System 5 error has occurred.. access is denied.

I already have Windows 7. I built my computer and I'd rather not redo it. I don't keep personal things on this computer other than World of warcraft or sims 3... which could always be re-installed? Right?
I have tried everything from cmd, to safe mode. Nothing works. So my best option i have left is figuring out if i can use a floppy disk or usb.. My father told me i would've needed that when creating the password. ..Hope not.. I don't have any of those freely around the desk so I will most likely have to just think hard of the password.. Because I hate being limited on a guest account.

System 5 error hmm...? I'll look into it, even though I'm late...lol.

Edit: So anyways, a system 5 error is an authorization error as you may know. It's when you have someone has dual permissions, and you do not have the highest power (simplifying it). Even if you are able to create a second administrator account, then you would not be able to get back into your old one. It works similar to these forums, or any forums. The default administrator group (owner) has more rights and abilities than the secondary administrator group we created. One suggestion by microsoft was to reassign the permissions to your hard drive. I'm not exactly sure what you could do at this point...

I recently came back after being afk for a moment and it hit me. Just use cmdkey to find your password. All you need to do is type...

cmdkey /list:(target name)

If this can't help you, I'm sorry but I do not know what could. I might be able to research the topic a bit more. Perhaps ethan could help you if I could not.

p.s. I hope I'm not way too late to help with this and it has already been solved.

The only hint I given myself on the admin account was.. "Only I know."

Did you use parenthesis, or not?

Example:

This...

cmdkey /list:administrator

or this...

cmdkey /list:(administrator)

?

I tried both, they both give the same answer.

I have no idea how to fix this, I'm sorry. The password has to be stored somewhere, I just don't know where to look.

I will be solving my problem soon later this month. I have a "Plan B" :P

Anyways, I'm going to close this since I decided to just go ahead with my separate plan.
