    Hi, I have 3 vps's with credentials saved, the problem is that I forgot the password and I can not acces these vps's from another pc. Any help? or how can I change the password for a vps if I dont know the current one, but I'm logged in?
    Windows 7
    Thanks

    are you renting the VPS or are they your own setup? If you renting most providers have a dashboard where you can do various tasks and generally includes resetting passwords.

    Have you tried contacting support of your service provider?
    In most cases, they should be able to help you create new password or reset it for you.

    If the VPSes are windows 7(and you are logged in like you said above), you should just be able to change the password graphically. If not it would be wise to post more info on the VPS if you are still able to have full control of the machine. If not you should contact the provider or look through the dashboard for options, as others have said.

    you said you are logged in and the VPS's are windows 7. there are many ways to reset the administrator password without the need of the current password.

    run CMD.exe as administrator, and type "net user administrator new_password" without quotes on every vps.
