Gaining Administrator Access without a Password

There are many processes & ways by which you can have a kind of an unprecedented access to any administrator, no matter how much strong password has been used to protect it. It is a reality. Here we will discuss mainly regarding two procedures through which you can gain an entry into the same without much hassle or difficulty. The first one is the easier of the two but is having one condition. It will work only in XP. It will not work for the systems running on Vista or Windows 7.There is a reason of this process running only in XP. Since XP can provide an entrance to the administrator control through backdoor it can work if you are lucky enough to know that the previous user of the system was not adroit enough to close this backdoor.

The process kicks off with booting your system into the safe mode. Start your system along with pressing the F5 button simultaneously prior the logo of the Windows appears. It may happen that you will have to give tries more than once for getting the perfect timing for the same operation. Since it requires to be implicated on the exact time. Follow the process by selecting the safe mode option. As soon as the log on screen appears on your screen it will contain the information of a user that you are completely unfamiliar with. It will not have any password in it & so you can very easily gain access to it with the status of an administrator level user respectively.

Once you get in the windows by cracking the password you are having the option of using the control panel for making a change in the password according to your choice & follow it up by closing the backdoor. This goes the first process. Now as per the second procedure is concerned; it mainly works with Vista or Windows 7. If anyone closed the backdoor, you can even use the process to gain an access as an administrator. Although the process is little complicated if followed in the right way, can work wonders for you. If you don’t posses a live Ubuntu Linux CD, the best procedure for doing the same is downloading the current version of the same from internet. Download the iso file & start the process. If you are even failure in downloading you can go for the perfect installation of an ISO recorder. If you expect results by just copying the iso file on the CD, it will not work. You will have to install a specific kind of software which involves a certain process. First of all select the System followed by Administration & Software sources. In the resultant of Windows, go for the final check for the two options that are lying unchecked.

After that reload the material, jumping over the copyright & restricted legal areas of the software. When the processing gets over with you will have to select System followed by a click on Administration & Synaptic Package Manager which you will get to see on the top right corner of your system. Enter with typing chntpw. You will get to see a specific program appear in the list of the packages just beneath it. Select the mark option & click on Apply till it gets complete.

How to delete your usage history tracks in Windows®

Windows is the most used operating system in the world. In this post I will let you know how to erase your computer usage tracks so that others are not able to see what you work upon. Since Windows XP, a lot of emphasis was given to the computer security and two different Windows accounts cannot check other users without a password. But even in Windows XP, the Administrator can anytime log into your account and see all that you have done. You can easily avoid such situations by clearing your history once you are through with your work so that no one can trace your footprints. I will cover clearing history from the Internet browsers, clearing history of opened applications, and clearing history of the open files.

Clear history of browsers

This is quite simple and can be done in any browser. Given below are the steps for Internet Explorer.

Step 1: Click on ‘Start’ button and open the ‘Control Panel’.

Step 2: In ‘Control Panel’, open the icon named ‘Internet Options’.

Step 3: In ‘Internet Options’ window you will find a button named ‘Delete’ under the ‘General’ Tab.

Step 4: Click on the ‘Delete’ button and then select the items you want to clear from the history of Internet Explorer.

These actions will erase the said history logs from your browser and no one can now see what all you did on the browser.

Clear history of opened applications

Windows Vista and above have a default feature of maintaining a list of recently opened applications in the ‘Start’ Menu. You however can make the settings to either clear this listing or not to save the list at all.

Step 1: Right click on the taskbar in Windows Vista or above and then click on ‘Properties’ option from the context menu.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Start’ Menu in the taskbar and Start Menu Properties Window.

Step 3: Here in the Privacy box you will find two check boxes and the first one will be for storing and displaying the recently opened applications in the Start menu.

Step 4: You can uncheck the box and click on apply to clear the list and not store the history again. If you just wish to clear the history then check the box again and click on ‘Apply’.

Clear Recent Items List

In ‘Start’ menu there is a folder for saving a list of recently opened files. This can easily be cleaned by following the steps given below

Step 1: Open the ‘Start’ Menu and then right click on the ‘Recent Items’ option.

Step 2: Now click on ‘Clear Recent Items’ list in the context menu.

How to Log on With Administrative Privileges

It was with Windows XP that security concerns were taken very seriously in operating systems and many security features were introduced. The most important and widely accepted measure was the advent of the NTFS file system, which gave security a whole new definition. With NTFS as your file system, you can set security according to your needs and requirements and one can customise the security settings in almost any possible way. If you do not wish your children to browse files of a certain partition, you can easily stop their access. Anything and everything available on the hard drive can be secured easily using the New Technology File System commonly known as NTFS. In NTFS you can make any changes, but if anyone can make the changes in security settings then what is the relevance of security. The answer to this is that not all can change the security settings, but only people who are administrators of the computer can make such changes. But again a question arises that who will make some of the users a part of the administrative group? The answer is the default administrator account which is created by Windows. This user has all the rights of the computer and can even control the other users who are part of the administrative group. This can be called as the super administrator of the computer. In Windows XP and later there are several tasks which can only be done by an administrator like installation, un-installation of hardware and software, user management, system management, hard drive management and a lot more. By default this account is not visible and is available for logging in, but we can easily make it active if we wish to login to it.

In this post I will discuss the way to gain administrative privileges for working in the core areas of Windows.

Step 1: Open the Command Prompt. This can be done by pressing the ‘Start’ button and then typing ‘CMD’ in ‘Start’ menu’s search or in the ‘RUN’ box and pressing ‘Enter’.

Step 2: Once you have the Command Prompt open type and execute the following command without quotes “Net user administrator /active:yes”.

Step 3: Now close all the windows including the Command Prompt and log off from the current account.

Step 4: Now once you reach the Login menu you will see that a new account named Administrator is also listed as a Login option.

Step 5: Select this account and login. By default the password of this account is blank, but if not blank then you need to contact the person who installed Windows on your computer.

Step 6: Once you are in to this administrator account you can make any changes to the computer because this is the super administrator account.

Another easy way to gain access to this account is by starting your computer in Safe Mode, because in Safe Modes’ login window the administrator account is always visible and available for login.

How can I stop users from installing Windows® XP Mode on Windows® 7 machines

Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows series of operating systems. It was launched after Windows XP and Windows Vista. Windows 7 is compatible with almost every application, but there are some which are compatible with Windows XP only. Mainly those applications are business applications, so keeping that problem in mind Microsoft provided an option in Windows 7 as Windows XP mode. Using this application, you can install any software in Windows 7 that is not compatible with Windows 7. Windows XP can work with Windows 7 in mainly two ways, either as a virtual operating system or as a way to open programs within Windows 7. It works with Windows 7 in a separate window like a program runs in Windows 7. The main difference is that it is not a fully functional version of Windows XP. In the Windows XP mode you can get access to the computer’s CD/DVD drive, you can install programs, save files and also perform many other tasks that were used by a computer running Windows XP. But sometimes you may want to stop other users from installing Windows XP mode.

You can use some of the easy steps given below. Read the instructions carefully.

Step1:

The first step to stop a user from installing Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 is not to make them the local administrators. This step should be your goal with Windows 7 deployments. To make users local administrator, there should be some instances because it is not quite often when you make a user a local administrator. It may not always work when you make them a local administrator. You can not restrict them to use Windows XP mode in Windows 7. There are some policies and general rules for local administrators. Users can work around these rules and policies, so, it is tough to block or restrict them.

Step2:

You can use AppLocker or software restriction policies to block them, and you can block Windows Virtual PC executables to stop them using the Windows XP mode. There are some executables but the important one is the vpc.exe. After blocking this executable, majority of users will be unable to use Windows XP mode in Windows 7.

These are the tested and effective steps to restrict users to install Windows XP mode in Windows 7. We recommend you to check hardware and compatibility before trying Windows XP mode.

How to Remove an Administrator Password in Windows XP
