Resetting a Password

If you have ever forgotten your password, you understand how important it is to write it down. However, writing down a password is not very secure. You can create a Password Reset disk to help you log on and reset your password. If you have any security credentials and certificates on your computer, the Password Reset disk restores them. If you have forgotten your password and don't have a Password Reset disk, you can ask your administrator to reset it for you. Resetting your password also erases any security credentials and certificates on your computer.

Create a Password Reset Disk

Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.

Double-click the User Accounts icon in Classic view.

Click the user's account name.

Click Prevent A Forgotten Password.

Insert a blank disk in the Floppy drive, and then follow the instructions in the Forgotten Password Wizard to create a password reset disk.
