With 240 million licenses sold out in one year, Windows 7 has been proved to be a successful product of Microsoft. Compared with its previous versions like Windows XP, it has many improved features.

How to Recover Windows 7 Administrator Password


Microsoft Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows operating system. Compare to its predecessor Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 is more powerful and more secure. Unlike Windows XP, Windows 7 adopted a new password protection system that we can't use the hidden administrator account by default. The problem is that when Windows 7 administrator password lost, we can no longer recover our lost password by using the hidden administrator account. Therefore, how to recover the Windows 7 Admin password if we lost or forgot it?

Don't worry, here are two methods for Windows 7 administrator password recovery:

Method one: Use another Windows 7 administrator account

If you had created more than one administrator account on your Windows 7 computer and you can remember the others admin password, you are lucky. In such a case, you can change one of the administrator accounts' password if you login with another administrator account. What you need to do is just following these 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user accounts

Step 2: Choose the locked administrator account.

Step 3: Click Change the password or Remove the password. And then you can change or remove the lost or forgotten password.

Please note: If you select this method, the locked Windows 7 administrator account will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources.

However, if the locked account is the unique administrator account on your Windows 7 computer, you can try the method below.

Method two: Use third party Windows password recovery software

There is plenty of software which is used to recover Windows password available online. You can choose one of them to create a Windows password recovery disk and use the disk to recover Win 7 Admin password. I recommend Windows Login Recovery. Then you can follow these 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Download the software and install it on another computer which has a CD/DVD writer.

Step 2: Run the software and burn the ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD.

Step 3: Recover Windows 7 administrator password with nearly burned password recovery disk.

Step 4: Reboot your locked computer without a password required.

Now you can regain access your Windows 7 operating system and create a new administrator password. The best thing of using this method is that you shouldn't lose any data on your computer. Furthermore, If you can't find a computer which has a CD/DVD writer or the locked computer have no a CD-ROM, You can burn the ISO image file into a USB flash drive and use the USB flash drive to recover your Windows 7 administrator password.

Try these two methods the next time you lose or forget your Windows 7 administrator password, which you do not need to reinstall Windows system for getting back to Windows by removing lost or forgotten password.

That would be the best solution. As long as you can login and the account has administrator rights.
