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,
Hey.. This might sound a liitle stupid but i forgot both my password and username!!!I And i have no other account except the guest account... What should I do?!?!!?!?! Please help!!!!
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.
