When booting into safe mode the administrator account is password protected. There are three computer administrators but that doesnt seem to matter, the administrator account is locked out and we need to get back in. What is the easiest way to do this? Please help!!!

Can you get in to the Admin account with normal boot? If so add a local member to the machine then add that member to the admin group. Log on using the newly added member. Remember to remove it after you have done what you needed.

It is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to reset or bypass the Administrator password. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for these reasons we do not provide this type of information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message or an email. Thank you for your understanding.
