Try this: To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps: 1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. 2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER. 3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER. If the above method cannot help you, try this useful tool "Windows Password Seeker".

Five days ago, I had an embarrassing experience that I forgot my Windows vista administrator password. As there is so much important data on my disk, I can not reinstall Windows. However, I thankfully found a useful tool. I download the program Windows Password Reset 9.0 and follow step-by-step instructions. Finally, I removed Windows password successfully.

You have a few options..

1) boot into safe mode and see if the hidden administrator account has a password set or not (alot of people forget to set it). once you get in you can create yourself a new user.

2) An ERD disk would work if you have one.

3) If you have an install disk you can also do a repair install which will ask you for a new admin password but won’t delete the other programs on the machine.

4) downloadable crack programs like those listed here : http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/windows-7-password-recovery.html

Dear Janie,

i forgot windows admin account password of my laptop once too
and so I decided to create a simple blog to help out people with similar problems.

Recommending the solution that i used...
It was simple, quick and something for newbies... =)

If you need a password reset disk software, that you can put on USB stick or write on a blank CD,
you can read more from my blog:
