I'll give you 3 top solutions to reset Windows vista password if you forget or lost your Vista password.?

Solution 1: Create a password hint to recall Vista password

As a Windows vista user, you are sure to know the new password hint function of Vista. When you create a password to log on to Windows, you can create a hint to help you remember your lost or forgotten Window Vista password with this new function. Of course, the password hint will not appear until you input a wrong Vista password. And at that time, you can try to recall our forgotten Windows Vista password through the password hint.

Solution 2: Create a password reset disk with a USB flash drive

Although the password hint can help you to remember forgotten Windows Vista password again, it doesn't can reset Vista password for you at all. When you still cannot recall the forgotten password with password hint, what should you do? For this, Microsoft provides another method for you - create a Windows password reset disk to reset Windows Vista password. Just follow the below steps to create a password reset disk.

* Step 1: Insert a USB flash drive in computer.

* Note:
Make sure you store the Windows password reset disk with the userkey.psw file in a safe place. As the password reset disk can be used for numerous times, unauthorized users can also access to your computer if he have the password reset disk in hand.

"How can I reset my account login password for Windows vista when I forgot windows password?"
Just like Ophcrack Windows Password Recovery, to reset windows vista password at the command prompt, you need an administrator account or account that has administrator privileges. Suppose you have lost your administrator account (Mosoh) password, you can use some software like Windows Login Recovery to recover windows vista password.

How access drive from Windows Vista


Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget 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.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
