To avoid reinstalling your system, the easiest way to resolve the problem is to...


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.

I forgot my Acer Aspire SA80 system login password. How do I crack it? Do I need to reformat? IF yes, kindly guide me how to reformat my system


There is no need to reformat your system and loose all of your data. Please post me back what operating system do you use in order to reply with details. Also clarify me if you have a clean installation cd/dvd (no factory recovery or restoration) of your op. system in order to get you the right details.

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

On my IBM Thinkcentre desktop when I turn on the computer I had a profile and I need a password for it but I fogot it.. Is there any override code to log on to the profile? Becuase the profile is the...


I assuming you are using a Windows operating system. There is no way to override a password if you have forgotten it. There are utilities that will allow you to reset the Administrator password to a blank password. Try the this popular utility:

Unfortunately you will need a computer to download this utility and create a boot CD but since you were able to post this I assume you do have access to a second computer.

To avoid reinstalling your system, the easiest way to resolve the problem is to...


Step1. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 and save it to your hard disk. Take note of what folder you saved the file in.
Step2. Burn the downloaded ISO file onto a CD. * To burn your CD, you'll need a blank CD-R . * If you are familiar with burning .iso image files you may use any software you already have such as Nero, Sonic, Roxio etc.
Step 3. Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password.
(1) Insert newly created CD in your CD drive and reboot your computer. When the CD boots, you'll see Windows Password Recovery 3.0 initializing (see screen shot below). If so, you can continue to the next step. If the computer still boots into Windows, it's necessary to change BIOS boot sequence to make it boot from the CD. You can find more info about this on our BIOS page HERE..
(2). Select the user account you want to reset.

(3) Click the 'Reset' button to process.
(4) Click 'Yes' to confirm your action. Or, click 'No' to undo your selection.
(5). In the end, a message box appears, indicating Windows Password Recovery has successfully reset the password.

I tried to do a system recovery then asks which windows installation i would like to log onto i pick windows now it needs a administrator password


The administrator password is just the password of the administrators account. so if you only had one account before system recovery use that password if there wasn't a password just click enter.
if this doesn't help give me more detail on your problem
