HI,

It's not easy, But you can try to log in as the administrator. When the computer comes up with the login, Type over your user name and enter Administrator as the user, If this is your personal computer most manufactures don't put a password to the administrator user. So leave the password blank and press login. If it requires a password and you don't have the administrator's password, then the only other thing you can do is to reinstall Vista, and it will reinstall the program over the existing one and ask you to set up the password again. However, I warn you about the license key. Typically newer computers place the license key COA stick on the side or back of the computer. If you purchased or made a white box computer (custom made) then you may be out of luck. The software for Vista retail edition comes on the box that the software came in, if you still have that box. Otherwise, your last solution is to contact Microsoft's technical support and they will ask you all sorts of questions and sometimes they will retrieve it for you. I believe they charge you for that call unfortunetely.

Last there are certain programs you can obtain, like
Ophcrack or Cain & Abel or John The Ripper.

I'd be careful with those programs, they are free, but some can have some issues with the registry files, make sure you read their instructions very carefully.

Good Luck

Mark

Forgotten my Google password and my phone password how I can unlock without losing anything


You can't. The only way to get past a consumer set pass code is to do a Hard Reset. You will get the offer to back up first.

You can get your Google password reset from a computer. Try and log in, and click Forgot Password.

Unlock Windows 7 Password by Third-party Software

If you don't have a password reset disk and can't access any administrative account on your win 7 computer, then you need to create a bootable disk with Windows Password Recovery Tool Standard (Click to download). You can download it on any other accessible PC, then burn it to a CD/DVD and then boot your computer from the disk and it allows you to unlock password Windows 7 instantly.

1. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool Standard and install it on any accessible computer.
2. Burn it onto a CD/DVD.
3. Boot your locked computer from the newly burned CD/DVD.
4. Wait until the boot process is finished. When a window pops up with all your Windows accounts, select a user account and click Reset Password button to reset your lost Windows 7 password.
5. Click the Restart button to reboot the win 7 computer, now you can log into your win 7 system without any password.

It is annoying when you forgot or lost your Windows 7 password. However, with the Windows 7 password unlocker (Click to know more info) solutions above, you can unlock your forgotten password and regain access to your Windows 7 OS easily and quickly.

Forgotten password


If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

I've forgotten my password


There is no way to know your password. The only way around this is to use the recovery disc's and reload the operating system with a fresh copy, this removes the password you installed.

Forgotten my password


You will need to do a reset to erase the password, this will erase all the stored information you inputted on the phone (phone numbers, pictures everything). My advice? figure out what the password is, think what would you use as a password and try it.
