Default Windows Vista Administrator lost password


I'm quite savy at computers but this is tricky. My mom has me set on
parental controls for Windows Vista. She gave me her password and I
turned them out, logged off and then logged back on to my account. Then,
when I turned off the computer and she turned it back on the next day,
her password didn't work. She's called people and apparently, I changed
the password without knowing I did.

Here's the problem, I don't have a disk to reset the administrator
password and I already tried the CMD way to reset the password but I got
"System Error 5 has occured. Access denied."

The administrator password is a big one since it controls everything I
do. I can't change anything or download anything without that password.

Is there ANYWAY I could change it?

Hello Tara,

Your mother can do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated
before the password was changed to restore the old password. The
tutorial below can help show her how to.

Hope this helps,

Hello Tara,

If you havenot NTFS encrypted files on your computer, you can just reset the
administrator password to blank using a Windows Password Reset Disc.

I have used Lazesoft Recover My Password, which is a easy to use. Here is
guides how to use it to reset Windows Administrator password to blank:

The easiest one to use is the Offlien NT Registry Editor. This will
clear the password for you so you can sign in and create a new one.
Please use this one, it is trusted and probably one of the more safe
ways to go.

This will download as an .iso file. It will need to be burnt as an
image. So you will need imgburn or other software that will handle .iso
formats.

Links and instructions:

Scroll down towards the bottom and you will see a Download section:
'Offline NT pw & reg-editor, bootdisk'

So you have to download & burn any tool to reset password i.e Offline
NT Registry Editor ([email protected]* post).Alternative you can try enable
in WinRE build-in Administrator account 'What do I do: I can no longer
log in or elevate to an administrator account'
(http://www.jimmah.com/vista/content.aspx?id=7)
System Restore ([email protected]* post) is also solution if both methods are too
hard.

All the above are great suggestions, if you actually know the password,
but since the problem is that, the password has been forgotten/hacked or
whatever, my suggestion is this neat program from PasswordSeeker, it
lets you reset/delete user passwords, it is a legal app. and very
useful, i've used it on a few PC's including my own and it works,

First, you can enable the hidden administrator account on that computer. or you can add another admin account wither her notice. so you can login with the new created account as admin. However, if you failed to do so, then you have to reset vista admin password. After this, you can login the computer without password.
