In short, boot SAFE MODE and use the Administrator account. Most were set to a blank password and with that you can use the control panel to set a new password for that account.
I have a friend whose User account password no longer works, is there any way to reset it or deactivate it?
There are no other User accounts set up on this computer. Running Windows XP Home.
Thanks in advance.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
