Methods of Resetting a Forgotten Windows Password

Forgotten Windows login password can be an extremely frustrating problem. Especially if you have important documents on your computer that you need to access as soon as possible. Luckily there are ways to reset a forgotten windows password,


Method 1: This is the traditional, free method. Please note that it can only be used if you don't have any important data on your computer as this process is going to permanently wipe all of your data off the hard drive. If that is not the case and you have important data on your computer that cannot be deleted, please skip to the second method. The traditional method of resetting a forgotten windows password is to simply reinstall the operating system. This is a quite complicated process and should not be attempted if you don't have at least intermediate computer skills. Again, if that is not the case, skip to Method 2. To reinstall the operating system, you will need the original Windows installation disk. Insert it into your computer, enter the bios (on most computers this is done by holding the DEL key as you power the computer on). Once you enter the bios, you need to locate the boot settings and select the DVD drive as a primary boot device. Once set, restart you PC and the Windows setup process will guide you through all the necessary steps. Remember, this will permanently delete all of your data.

Method 2: A far better and easier method is to reset a forgotten windows password is to use a password recovery software. Compared to the first method you will not lose any of your data and it takes only a few minutes as opposed to couple of hours. It is also extremely easy to use and no computer knowledge is required to rest your password using such software. This method is ideal if you don't feel like reinstalling the whole operating system or you can't afford to lose the data that you have on your computer. A password recovery software is a small utility built specifically to recover forgotten windows password. Once installed, the friendly user interface of the software will guide you through all the necessary steps. All the input that is necessary from the user consists of few mouse clicks and after just 60 seconds you will be ready to login again!

Last month , I lost my windows vista administrator password. I solved my problem with the help of Reset Windows Password utility. It not only supports Windows Vista , I have personally tested it with Windows 7 . It worked perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. Just an easy to use bootable CD/DVD . It can also be used on a USB Flash Drive.
