RE: Can not reset admin password under safe mode due to password polic

In the elevated command prompt, type
net user administrator /active:yes and press Enter
> Hi, all.
> I'll have to log into the default administrator account, because I can not
> do anything under the current standard user account status. I went to the
> safe mode, and tried to log into the admin account, but the password is
> forgotten. I built the reset password USB disk under the account before. Now
> I follow the instructions for resetting the password. However, the window

> short, or ca not conform to the password policy. I've tried passwords of
> different lengths, such as 3,6,8,16, 20. All tempts have been failed. What
