Forgot only account password, no vista disk or password reset disk..
 
I forgot the password to my computer, and it is the only account on the
computer. I do not have a reset disk and I dont think I ever had a Vista
disk. I cannot use that computer at all. What is the easiest way I can
fix it?

I'm afraid there is only ONE way out in your situation. Use Method
Three, and only method three, from this tutorial.

Read and study the link above.
Download the files, make a bootable CD.


Reinstall Vista(with borrowed Vista DVD, using the product key on your
system), or create Recovery disk to boot off. Boot into Vista advanced
recovery utility and perform a System Restore to a point before you
changed the password. The old password will then work.

Remember the password?
"What is the easiest way I can fix it?"

Failing that--
It depends upon what else you did, such as encript the hard drive. In
general, there are some ways to change the password. None are easy or
simple, your first requirement. The laptop may have an OEM method of
restoring by running a backup of the original OEM Vista load. Usually this
is invoked with a key combination during the early stage of bootup.
Unfortunately, if this method is used, you will loose any application
installs and data that were placed on the laptop by you.

1. Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download Windows Password Unlocker 4.0 and decompress it on that PC. Note that: there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD.

2 Get out the newly created CD and insert it to the locked computer.

3 re-booted the locked computer and then followed the process of instructions. Just a few steps, the old password was removed.'''

4 Setting new password:

Step one: Open the "Control Panel"

Step two: Click the "User Account "

Step three: Select the account you wanna to set a new password.

Step four: Click "changing Account " and "set up password", then fill out the form as listed. Click "Create Password".

Thus, you have a personal login ID and Password, any one has no right to login to your computer with out this info.

Yes, windows password unlocker is very smart. With it, my several classmates recover their admin password. I am going to create a reset CD as well.

If you lost windows password. I think the best solution is making a windows password recovery disk with the third part utility. The disk works perfectly to recover windows password to “Blank”. It is also useful for administrator password recovery, you can wrote it to an blank CD or USB flash drive to recover administrator password. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.
