Try Password Recovery Tools After Locked out of Windows 7

By Olgahu Subscribe to RSS | January 14th 2012 | Views:

Forgetting Windows password happens every day. You may set a rather complicated password and rarely use the computer, or you may come back from a journey, leaving the computer aside for such a long time, or you are confused about too many password.

Following are some questions about forgotten Windows password:

Q1: I stupidly forgot my Windows password, how can I remove or reset it?

I use Windows 7 and I heard there's no way to reset it unless you want to remove all your data. Is there any other way to do it?

Q2: Ugh, please help me! Forgot Windows 7 password..?

We have winborg, it's a different version of windows and I forgot the password to get on mine, so I have to use my daughter's account (which has no administrator rights) how can I get on mine without having to re-install everything?

Solution 1: Try Windows 7 destructive recovery

The built-in Administrator account on Windows 7 is disabled or inactive by default so you can't access it even in safe mode. But you can try the following steps instead.

1. Turn on or restart the computer.

2. Tap the F10 key repeatedly once you see the Compaq logo until the recovery screen appears. On some models it may be the F11 key. This must be done before your operating system begins to load. If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.

3. When the recovery screen appears, press "Next" and then "Yes" to perform a non-destructive recovery.

4. To perform a destructive recovery, click "Advanced" and then "Yes".

5. After the recovery is finished, the laptop will reboot.

Solution 2: Use Windows 7 password recovery tools

Though it seems hopeless to retrieve the forgotten administrator password, the methods are actually easier than the above ones.

Windows password recovery tools can be used in all conditions whether you are locked out or not. Top-rated Windows Password Breaker is one of the best software, which supports windows XP/7/Vista and server 2000/2003/2008.

The whole process is very easy:

Install Windows Password Breaker and burn a bootable Windows 7 password recovery disk by CD/DVD or USB flash drive. Set you locked computer boot from it, and then you will get the options to reset forgotten admin password intuitively.

It means you can download and install Windows Password Breaker in any other computer if you cannot download it in your locked laptop.
