In Windows 7, security has greatly been improved. Thus windows password reset ways for windows 7 are different from that in windows XP to some extent.

Dissimilarities

In windows XP, the built-in admin can be found in safe mode logon screen and has no password by default. Thus, you can make use of the trick to enter safe mode, and then do windows password reset in control panel, or run net user command.

In windows 7, it asks you to set a user account and its password during system installation, and then disables built-in admin automatically. Even in safe mode, you cannot enable it without administrator privileges. Therefore, the above method for windows XP is not workable for windows 7.

A. Log on to Windows by that account.

B. Click Start, and then click Run.

C. In the Open box, type "control userpasswords2", and then click OK.

D. Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.

E. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
