It often happens that the PC is stored any sensitive and confidential data to which access must be restricted. Microsoft Windows makes it easy to limit the circle of persons having access to files on the computer by installing a special key. It can be your own person, if the user s several.
An access code is required for the protection of information on PC different owners from one another. For example, it is not uncommon that parents need, so that curious children are unable to see the which is not they are entitled to information.

Configure the command prompt
In order to adjust the command line, you must use the disk with the Windows distribution. This way the settings and reset the access code is suitable in the case that it is forgotten, and otherwise run the OS is not possible.
First and foremost, it is necessary through BIOS to set boot from CD-ROM or other device containing the distribution. After that you should reboot and start the installation.
Then following actions are performed:
- opens a window for selecting language settings, click Next;
- select «system Restore»->»Command prompt»;
- enter «regedit»;
- in the opened registry editor, find the section called «HKEY_LOKAL_MACHINE»;
- select it, click on menu «File» and choose «Load hive»;
- select the drive where the OS is installed, and open the file located at «disc name:windowssystem32SYSTEM»;
- you must enter an arbitrary name for the selected partition (for example, 999);
- go to the HKEY_LOKAL_MACHINE999Setup and push twice on the parameters:
- CmdLine – enter cmd.exe;
- SetupType – model parameter 0 to 2;
- allocated section 999 and click «Unload hive»;
- extract the distribution and restart the PC.
Reset password and login
After loading the operating system, the user immediately will see a command prompt window. To implement reset password, you must enter the following command: net user username
If for some reason User forgot account name, then one can write net user without parameters. It will display all available names and select the desired.
If the use of the new Password is not assumed, just leave the field blank.
If you must enter the new command will appear as follows: disc name:Windowssystem32net user username new-key.
Also, you often need to create a new account without access key.
To do this, perform the following commands in exact order:
- imparl net user /add;
- net localgroup Administrators name /add;
- net localgroup user name /delete.
These commands in the strict order operations:
- create a new User;
- add it to a workgroup Administrator;
- deletion of the group Users.
The subject method of reset is quite complicated, but is quite feasible even for less experienced PC owners.
Reset method the key data from the SAM file
There are a number of different ways to reset the login ID to the system. But they just change in different ways information is stored in a special file called the SAM. He is running, for data concerning both User and Password. This name-the abbreviation stands for Security Account Manager.
Considering the file has no extension, as it is simply it is not required. It is a direct part of the registry is the directory systemrootsystem32config. A copy of the considered file is available on the emergency repair disk, if this function for some reason, was not previously disabled.
Edit this file to change the settings of the operating system is the most complicated way. To work with SAM you need specialized software from third party developers. All operations with SAM need to be performed very carefully and accurately.
How it works
The most popular application to change the data in the SAM file is active password changer. Before you start working, you must copy the application to any media or another hard drive FAT32.
After performing this operation, you must:
- to run folder password file «BootableDiskCreator»;
- in the opened window select «Add USB …»;
- activate the button «Start».
After performing all the above actions will create a bootable flash drive.
The process of modifying data using the application in question as follows:
- restart PC with it installed in a USB flash drive;
- choose the disk on which is located the SAM;
- if the search completes successfully, it will display the table User;
- select the desired item, press the key Enter;
- in the opened window put a cross next to the item «clear this … «;
- put the letter «Y», thereby agreeing with the operation.
This way of working with user accounts and their attributes is as safe as possible. As it allows you to avoid editing the registry and other operations that are performed manually. It is sometimes difficult for not very experienced users, who started to work with my PC recently. Likely to cause harm to the operating system in this case is almost equal to zero.
Another important advantage of this program is the ability to set schedules for the use of PC separate accounts.
The disadvantages include the fact that some older motherboards will not run from USB media. In this situation you have to look for any alternative options: a floppy disk, CD-ROM or something else.
Quite often, especially with beginners, there are situations when the combination of digits needed to log in to OS forgotten or otherwise lost. From such a complex situation, there are many exits, the refresh is not always required. Moreover, to cope with resetting the access code to the OS, any computer owner with minimal skills interacting with appliances of this type.
