Recover administrator password in Windows

How to recover Windows XP administrator password?

Losing windows password is definitely an irritating thing. You cannot do anything without an administrator password. If the system has two administrators, then this is not a big issue. Limited users have very limited privileges. You cannot install any software or do any critical operation in a Limited account. If the system fails to boot, you might be reaching safe mode.There you definitely need or privileges.

There are two ways to fix the issue. Installing a fresh copy of Windows. This will not delete any of your files and settings. Remember, reinstalling windows will not fix the issue, as it will just re-copy all the system files.

The second way is the one which am going to recommend.

  • Insert Windows XP CD
  • Restart your PC and boot from your CD.
  • Continue normally, till the window reads text similar to "Setup already found a version of XP installed"
  • There will be an option to repair the same version. (Caution : Not this repair mode, where you will get a command dos prompt).
  • Now windows will proceed to repair XP.
  • At one point, you can see "Installing devices" with a progress bar below.
  • Quickly press CTRL + F12. You will be given a command dos prompt.
  • Type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter.
  • This is it. Now you got the controller. Reset the administrator password or just create an another administrator for your system.
  • Close the Control panel and proceed with the installation

Blurred Vision:

If the Sharpness of the Image goes of, its blurred Vision. The image appears like its is not Clear and details wont be clear enough to analyze what is what. In the worst case, the Shape of the Image goes blurred, even a Cow appear as an ATM Machine

Cloudy Vision:

Cloudy vision means
Consider a glass of water , add a drop of Milk in it.
Then see how it looks.
That is how you would see the world. The whole thing is clear but you would see a Mild Screen.
