What version do you have?


Try using Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor.

WARNING! If password is reset on users that have EFS encrypted files, and the system is XP or newer, all encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be recovered unless you remember the old password again. If you don't know if you have encrypted files or not, you most likely don't have them.

A variety of options from M/soft to others -


Try these 2 options,

Method 1
To go "Safe Mode" and follow these instructions.
1) Right click on "Computer" => Click on "Manage" => "Computer Management" Window will be opened.
2) At left side double click on "Local Users and Groups" => Under it, click on "Users" => Now at the right click you can find all the users.
3) Now select your user and right click on it----->Select "Properties"---->then uncheck the checkbox "Account is disabled". (Note: if account is locked option is also selected, then uncheck that option also)
Then Click on OK => Close the computer management window
4) Restart your PC and try to login in normal mode.



Method 2

1. Did you try to login to the same user account in safe mode?
2. Do you see built-in administrator user account in safe mode?
3. What will happen if you press Ctrl+Alt+Del keys in safe mode on login screen?
The built-in Administrator account cannot be disabled.

We recommend you to check if there is an Administrator user account visible in safe mode and login to it to enable other admin user account.
See Disable or activate a user account
