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.

For got password to login in how do i fix this


brendapace3,
What are you trying to login into? Your Windows computer or a website?

If you are trying to log into your computer and forgot the password.
Try starting in Safe Mode, by restarting the computer, and as soon as you see the Computers Manufacturers logo start pressing F8 on the keyboard. Select Safe Mode from the options (usually option 3). When it loads select the Administrator account (unless you set a password when you installed your operatinsg system, this should not have a password set. Leave the password field blank and log in. Once logged in, go into Control Panel, Select user accounts and remove or change the password for your user account. Save changes. Exit control panel and Restart the computer.

If you forgot the password for a website, most sites have a Forgot Password or Need assistance with Logging in link. That link is usually under the login boxes.

Hope this helps
