The Microsoft Windows 7 operating system includes an authentication feature for user accounts that can be enabled when a secure computing environment is necessary to protect sensitive information stored on the computer. Microsoft Windows 7 also includes a password reset disk feature that can be used in the event that a user forgets Windows 7 account password. Use a Windows 7 password reset disk when you cannot remember your account password.
Now, here I have collected some kinds of Windows 7 password recovery solutions which may give a big hand for you if you have got the trouble with password forgotten on Windows 7.
Solution 1: Bypass Windows 7 password with a password reset disk
It is easy to reset the forgotten password on Windows 7 if you meet with the similar trouble. But as is known, this solution only works that you have created a Windows 7 password reset disk before. Otherwise, it makes no sense.
1. If you enter the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows will display a message that the password is incorrect. Click OK to close the message box.
2. Click Reset Windows Password, and then insert Windows password reset disk (or other removable media).
3. Follow the steps in the Password Reset Wizard to create a new password.
4. Log on with the new password to login.
Solution 2: Reset Windows password from Command Prompt
In the Command Prompt you can monitor all the user of the computer by typing some commands.
1: Press Win Key+R and type cmd in the Run command box and hit enter to open command prompt. And then type net user in the command prompt and hit Enter. The Command Prompt will show you all accounts on the Windows 7 PC.
2: Type net user xyz (xyz is the locked admin account's name and 123 is the new password) and press Enter. Now you have successfully created a new password on the locked admin account.
3: Type shutdown -r -t 00 and press Enter.
But as this method, the premise is that you can still log on the locked pc with an administrative level permission account and password.
