Sorry to be so obtuse.... I clicked HERE as instructed but there wasn't anywhere that I could "Agree" in order that something could be downloaded/installed to enable you to have access to my computer. Unfortunately, someone uses my computer during office hours so I am required to try to fix this problem prior to 8.30.

I can provide instructions for you to try yourself but I need to know which version of windows you have? Is it windows 10, 8, 7?

Advised Windows cannot remove password

Will it let you change it and is the account you are logged into an administrator account?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Many thanks. If you could provide an approximate time, it would be appreciated
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it is an administrator account.

You should then be able to reset the password ***** the account you cannot get into. If you cannot is this a computer that is part of a domain connected to a server by chance? If not try following along with these instructions https://www.isunshare.com/windows-7-password/reset-windows-7-password-with-command-prompt.html

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
