I recently changed my password and I've forgot it. Previously I've used F8 when I boot then safe mode w/net and it bypassed my user password screen but now it's not working. Any info would be great

There is one small problem with helping members regain their password.  We have no way of knowing if you actually own this computer.  One of the Forum Rules states the following...

 

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures.

 

Bleeping Computer's stance of helping members regain their password has relaxed to some extent over the last several years.  But the best advice I feel comfortable with is Google is your friend, and the answers are out there and easily found.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

That is why i was Leary of answering this post, haha.

Also why i haven't explained how to use it.

BUT if they do own the computer then what can ya do. (even though there really is no way to really tell online)

Well I'll try google. but just to be clear, it's my computer. I have other post on here as well. Someone remote logged in my computer, I'm not computer savy so I figured I'd change user password and go from there. Can anyone tell me where to post so I can create enough security so this person can no longer access my computer? Thanks ahead of time

Open the Control Panel and open System.

 

Click on Remote Settings.

 

Click in the Don't allow remote connection to this computer.

Open the Control Panel and open System.

 

Click on Remote Settings.

 

Click in the Don't allow remote connection to this computer.

I'd Also disable the rules in Advanced Fire wall for remote desktop connection. (if you wish to go that far)

That is for the Microsoft Account, not the password used when you start Windows.

One of the most common places...for finding info about password resets and such...is the OEM manual for said system.
