Remove Windows 7 Password


Remove Account Password & Turn Off Password Protection in Windows 7 <img src="turn-off-windows-7-password-protection.jpg" />One of the great features of Windows 7 is User account password protection. At last articles we learn how to <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/create-a-windows-7-logon-password.htm"><b>create a Windows 7 logon password</b></a> and how to <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/change-login-password-in-windows-7.htm"><b>change login password in Windows 7</b></a>. However, there are times when removing a password from an account make sense. Learn how to <b>turn off Windows 7 password protection</b>.<br /> Everyone can have his/her own account in win7. This avoids the obvious annoyances and security risks associated with sharing a desktop and having everyone's files available to all other users of the computer.<br /> However, there are times when turning off password protection on a Windows 7 account makes sense. For example, if you are the only user of your computer, it may not make sense to have to type in a password every time you turn on your computer. Another case is that you are a forgetful person and you often <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/forgot-windows-7-password.htm"><b>forgot your Windows 7 User Password</b></a>, you don't want to <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/reset-windows-7-password.htm"><b>reset lost password</b></a> each time you can't remember it.<br /> Another reason you may want to <b>remove account password protection</b> is if you need multiple people to share the same account. Finally, if you want to set up a public account, you need to make sure people have access by not password protecting the account. Whatever your reasons, Windows 7 makes it easy to <b>turn off password protection</b> for an account.<br /> Turn off Windows 7 Password Protection To turn off password protection for Windows 7 account, make sure you are set up as an administrator on your computer. Then, begin by clicking on Start and then open up the Control Panel.<br /><img src="start-control-panel-windows7.jpg" /> In the Windows 7 Control Panel, click the User Accounts and Family Safety option.<br /><img src="user-accounts-and-family-safety.jpg" /> Under the User Accounts section, click on Change Your Windows Password.<br /><img src="change-your-windows-7-password.jpg" /> In the Make Changes to Your User Account window, click on Remove Your Password.<br /><img src="remove-your-password-in-windows-7.jpg" /> Here, Windows 7 asks you to confirm your choice to remove your password by typing in your current password. This step is critical because it prevents just anyone from hijacking your account by removing or resetting the password. After you have typed in your current password, click the Remove Password button.<br /><img src="remove-windows-7-password.jpg" /> Windows 7 then takes you back to the Make Changes to Your User Account window. Unfortunately, Windows does nothing to confirm that you have indeed removed your password other than the new option on this window titled <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/create-a-windows-7-logon-password.htm"><b>Create a Password for Your Account</b></a>.<br /><img src="create-a-password-for-your-account.jpg" /> Verify Removal of Password You can verify that Windows 7 has removed your password by logging out of your account and clicking on your account icon again. Notice that this time Windows 7 did not ask you for a password but instead simply logged you in.<br /> Remember that anyone who has access to your computer can now log in to your account with typing password. Also, understand that anyone who steals your computer will also have access to your account and your private files. With no password protection, anyone can also set a new password and lock you out of your own account. Be certain that you want to <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/remove-windows-7-password.htm"><b>turn off password protection</b></a> for your account before you make your private files vulnerable.<br /> Tips: Not a Windows 7 user? Still Using XP or Vista? Don't know how to remove account password on other Windows Versions?

Windows Password reset/recovery


Just finished reading one of the guru's marvelous tip on Windows password recovery (http://www.fixya.com/support/r5393255-windows_password_recovery), thought I'd share a different method which I use:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password ;-)
Hope readers will find this helpful..

Let me know if that helped you in returning back your old desktop. if not then follow up. Thanks

Forgot the password


Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password.
If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.

What to do ,can't log on password required


You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.

Log In password lost


There a couple things you can try.
1.Since the true Administrator is disabled by default, if you only had one
"administrative" user account created and you've forgotten the password
to it, try starting the computer
in Safe Mode. Supposedly this will
enable the built-in Administrator account for the one session. The
default password may be a blank. Get into Safe Mode by repeatedly
tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up. If this works for
you, create at least a few extra user accounts for emergencies. I
usually create at least three accounts on client machines: one standard
user for every day work, two administrative users for emergencies.

2. Go to this site: http://www.password-changer.com/ download the free demo and this will help you fix the password.

ADMINISTRATOR account disabled


Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.
