  1. Forgot the password of the LocalAdmin ID and by mistake made it the Administrator account.


    I changed the type of my Local Admin account as Administrator

    Now I don't know the password of that account.

    So i am not able to give any access to my computer as it asks for password to do so.

    Even I am not able to open cmd as administrative because it too need password to do so.


    How can I Reset the password?
    OR
    Change my account type back to Standard without knowing the password?

    You need to boot into Safe Mode. Do this by mashing F8 when the computer is starting, right before Windows loads, until you see a bunch of options. Select "Safe Mode". It'll boot into Safe Mode, and bring you to the login screen. At the login screen, go in as "Administrator", and from there go to the control panel. In the control panel, open "users", select the account you forgot the password of, and click "remove password". Restart the computer and all will be well *Smile Forgot the password of the LocalAdmin ID and by mistake made it the Administrator account. :).

    Where you should click on Command Prompt. The command prompt will open, now you can carry on from step 2 in Option Four of @Brink's Tutorial I linked to earlier. At no point should you be asked for an account or password.

    If this is not what happens for you please describe what you do see, with screenshots if possible.
