If you lost your Windows Administrator password for one account, can you use the Guest account and change that to the Administrator?

    You can use HIREN Boot CD to promote your Guest account to Admin,

     hmm, i forgot my password before, and i have tried the safe Mode and my
    guest account, but failed to enter the system.finally i use Windows
    login Recovery software, I downloaded the professional free trial and
    reset my password. Wow, it's great. users lost password would better
    have a try.

    If you think about it you could have answered that question yourself. If any non-administrator account was able to recover passwords or make itself administrator there would be no point in having them. 

    In fact, the predefined Guest account has even less permissions than a regular non-admin account.

    Is searching MakeUseOf not "hip" anymore? Also, we are talking about hacking an account, could you at least supply support with your operating system? (7, Vista, XP, etc).

    With that being said, there are very many ways to get *back* into Windows (I never accused Windows of being secure). Here are a few.- http://bit.ly/dCnpp (MakeUseOf :: Article)- http://bit.ly/nVPQ6d (MyDigitalLife :: Article)- http://bit.ly/1cJ27q (PC LoginNow - My Favorite Tool :: Tool)
