I would like to introduce "Windows Login Recovery". It not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive to recover windows password. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm. You can download it from http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com

Why can't you remember the password? Did you set the password? Is it your laptop or is it stolen?

Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen user Logon Password?

Which Operating System Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

You type like an honest person so lets see if we can help you out :)

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

I cant remember my password


For these situations, I recommend:
1. Think hard, was the password tied to something you'd remember by going over common things in your life? Names of family member or important dates that only you would know are common.
2. Try a password recovery program - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/passrecovery.htm
3. The least desirable option is reinstalling Vista from the disc.
