Part 2: By Resetting Password to Get Into Windows 7

Resetting a password is another way by which any user can access Windows 7 without password. Resetting a password can be done using three possible methods. All these three methods are stated below:

Method 1. Use Password Reset Wizard to Reset Windows 7 Password

System recovery features allows the user to make plans of restoring the computer to its normal operation before an incident occurs. Such incidents include: losing or forgetting the system passwords, formatting of the hard disc and spoilage of the computer parts. If the user is very familiar with system recovery features, setting up a password rest disk would be a priority. Using the password reset disk to get into a locked computer will only work if the user has taken precautionary steps of setting up a password rest disk. If the password reset disk has been created beforehand, then the following steps should be taken by the user:

1. Once you type the wrong password on the login page, the Windows 7 computer will show a Reset password link under the login box. Insert the password reset disk into the computer and then click on this Reset password link.

4. The Finish page will be displayed on the screen. Click on Finish and log in to Windows 7 with the new password.

Method 2. Reset Windows 7 Password through Super Administrator

In Windows 7, the default administrator account preinstalled by the manufacturers is also called the Super Administrator account. The Super Administrator account is different from the regular administrator account. It allows users to get more permission to change things in the OS. The super administrator account can be activated through the command prompt when the user still has administrator privileges on his computer or through the safe mode when the password has been forgotten. The users can get into Windows 7 again after resetting password through super administrator privilege.

The following steps should be taken to reset password:

1. Reboot the computer and press F8 continuously for the Advanced Boot Options list to be displayed on the screen of the computer. Navigate with the arrow keys to the Safe Mode option and click Enter.
