Well you can use the admisintrator account you set up to begin with or any other account that has admin abilities to change the password.  But if you dont have that then you will have to hack the password to change it.
to do that go to source forge and download ophcrack live cd http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/ and burn it to cd.

Then boot to the cd.  (put it in the drive and rebioot then hit key when asked to boot to cd.  you may have to go into your bios and activate cd as a boot device.)
Then it will start to crack the password (I say crack for a lack of a better word)
Once its done you chould see a list of passwords found.
Write down the one you need and then reboot the computer without the cd in the drive.
Then when it asks for password use the one you wrote down and then imediately go to users and change the password to something you will remember.
hope this helps.

Hi there,
You can change your password by logging on with another account with Admin rights.
Then go to Users in Control Panel. -> Start / settings / control panel, or
Right click “This computer” and choose manage.

If this doesn’t work,

then there is quite a few excellent easy to use programs you can download.
One of the best is here:
http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3365621/ERD.Commander.2005

to download the "torrent", you ned a small program, download from here:
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/download.php

First you download Azureus, then install it.
Then you "download" the "torrent" from thepiratebay and OPEN it. Azureus will open and the downlod begin.

When you have downloadet ERD commander 2005 then you will need to burn the disc image to a CD using software that supports burning of ISO images - download from here:
http://www.imgburn.com/
ore here:
http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

With this disk, you just boot your system (note that the CD drive should be the first boot).

You now have full control of your computer and permition to over write the administrator password, plus a lot more :-)
Good Luck

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why not????

2. Expand Local Users and Groups and Users in the console.
3. Right-click Administrator account and select Properties.
4. On the General tab, clear the Account is Disabled check box.

Forgot Windows 7 Password - What Should You Do to Log on Your Computer?


Just as Tom Hanks said in the famous movie Forrest Gump, "Life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get." As a Microsoft Windows version launched for only 9 months, Windows 7 has overtaken Windows vista in global market share according to California-based Net Applications. It moves up to the second place in the Microsoft's OS, with 14.46 percent of the global market last month compared to Vista's 14.43 percent.

As a common PC user, I don't know whether Windows 7 will surpass Windows XP, which still has a lion's share of users worldwide after released for 9 years. I also don't know when Windows 7 will pass Windows XP if it is able to overtake. But as a common PC user often forgetting Windows password, I do know some ways to log on computer again if one forgot Windows 7 password.

The most well-known method is to create a password reset disk in advance. And when you forgot Windows 7 password, you can reset Windows 7 password with the disk and log on your computer again. The steps to create a password reset disk and how to use the disk to reset forgotten Windows password are available on Microsoft official website and various PC forums. Here I introduce you another effective way to regain access to computer if you forgot Windows 7 password. That is to reset lost password with Windows password recovery software, which can help you to reset Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. Following are steps to recover Windows 7 password by burning a USB flash drive.

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery and install in a computer.

Download Windows Login Recovery from official website, and then install it.

Step 2: Burn a USB drive to reset forgotten Windows password.

Follow the step-by-step guide to burn a USB drive to reset lost Windows 7 password after running Windows Login Recovery (the detailed user guide). After burning, insert the burned USB flash drive in the computer that you forgot Windows 7 password.

Step 3: Set BIOS to boot from USB.

1. Start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup during the initial startup screen.

2. Use the arrow keys to select the Boot tab, and then select Hard Disk Drivers and press Enter.

3. Adjust USB to 1st Drive, and then press F10 to save.

The computer will restart automatically, and then you can start to remove the forgotten Windows 7 password under DOS.

Note: What key is pressed to enter BIOS depends on the manufacturers, but in most cases it is F2 or Delete.

Step 4: Remove the forgotten Windows password.

1. Choose the installation path of Windows, and enter the ID of the path. All user names will be displayed for you.

2. Select the user name you want to remove its password by entering the ID of the User Name. And then enter y to confirm and continue.

3. After removing the password for the selected user name, you can enter y to continue to reset passwords of other user names, or enter n to restart computer. And now you can log on computer without password.

Important: After selecting n to restart computer, please remember to press any press, and then take the burned USB flash drive out of computer.

After the above simple steps, your forgotten Windows password is removed so that you can log on your computer without password. This method can not only help you reset forgotten Windows 7 password, but also help you regain access to computer again when you forgot Windows password on Windows Vista, Windows XP and son. And there are 2 different editions of Windows Login Recovery for your choice according to your actual password.

Accessing EMachines W3107 Recovery Partion


You can fix this virus without recovering.

Log in normally. Go to run, type in msconfig and go to the startup tab. Uncheck everything and reboot your pc. Once there try your internet. If it's not working go to Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings, and uncheck anything in your proxy settings. Close IE and reopen. You should be able to connect. Then download and run Malwarebytes, and then run Bitdefender Online scanner.

The only other thing that may be trouble is that there may be a rootkit that neither scanner will detect. You can run Combofix, but this program isn't for the average user. Follow instructions carefully when using Combofix.

The only way I know how to reverse a password that you have forgotten on Windows Vista)

This way is to boot from the Windows Vista Home Premium DVD-ROM drive and then run the system restore utility off the disc. You can revert back to a time when you did not have the password but this will erase any programs you have installed up to the date you forgot it.
