If you can get to a friend's computer that has internet access and a cd burner, then go to this website http://www.pcloginnow.com/product.html

and download the program "PC Login Now" and follow the user guide to create a bootable CD http://www.pcloginnow.com/guide.html

This software is extremely easy to use and will clear your login password so you will be able to login to your windows account without reformatting your computer.

Hope that helps!!!

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.

I have a emachine w3619, i let my son use it and he changed the login password and cant remember it. and i cant figure out how to get into my computor. how do i go about getting into my computor


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

How do i reset my windows xp password if i have forgotten it


Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.

Login trouble


A password is put in place as a security measure. It prevents unauthorized use by anyone but the entitled user. Therefore, if the password is not known then the computer cannot be accessed. I cannot provide you instructions on how to by pass this as I have no way of knowing if you are the owner of this computer. Take it to a pc shop and once proof of ownership is established it will be fixed quickly. I'm sure you understand, if someone else had this pc and they were instructed on how to get in you would not be happy. Cheers, good luck.
