How do I reset the password on the windows 7 home page


Windows has a built-in security system that requires a user to type in a password to get to his personal account.
Only an "Administrator" account holder can make software changes to the computer.
All other users, including Guest users, need the permission of an Administrator to make any system changes.
However, if you have a guest account and need to access the Administrator account to make changes, you can do so via the Command Prompt feature.
Log in to your Guest account in Windows.
Go to "Start" > "Search" and type in "windows/system32/cmd.exe" to find the Command Prompt feature.
When the file appears on the search menu, drag it to your desktop.
Leave the search window open.

Right-click the cmd.exe file on your desktop and choose "Rename."
Type "sethc.exe" for the new name and click on an empty area next to the file name to save the new name.
Right-click on the "sethc.exe" file and click on "Copy."
Go back to the open "windows/system32" folder and right-click anywhere in the folder.
Select "Paste" to put the "sethc.exe" file inside.
Choose "Yes" when asked if you want to overwrite the current file.
Go to "Start" > "Log Off." It will bring you back to the User Account menu.
Press the "Shift" key 5 times in a row.
The Command Prompt will open.
Type "net user administrator [password]" and insert a new password in the [password] section.
Press "Enter" to set your new password.
It will bring you back to the User Accounts menu.
Click on the Administrator User Account and type the password you just set to log in to the account.

I have changed a new password for my administrator account and foget the password, i can only log through the user account. pls help me with steps on how to reset the password and enter new one


Do you need to reset vista or xp users password? Ihas a little trick that dig it for you from tech-hack forums. The method is very easy to follow and doesn't require any complicated commands. The method is free to use and you don't need to pay hundreds of dollars for some utility for unlocking lost windows passwords. Just follow next simple steps:
First thing you need to do is to start command prompt or CMD. There is two ways to do that:
Press F8 when Windows XP start up (before windows xp logo - progress bar for loading) and choose "Save Mode Command prompt" option
If you are logged in: click on start -> Run, type "cmd" and press ENTER.
In command prompt window type command "net user" or "net users". You will see the list of users that are created on current running OS.
Type "net user" "user name" "*". You will see that windows will ask you to enter new password for that particular user account! No super user privileges needed. Just type new password two times and you are done.
Example of process: If the administrator username is "administrator" then command for changing its password will be: "net user administrator *".
Note: quotes (") in the post are just for highlighting the word.
