Computers running operating systems such as Windows 7 are capable of having more than one user account. Each of these accounts can be a "guest" account or "administrative" account, with administrative accounts having unlimited access to the computer. Each account can be password-protected. If you forgot Windows 7 password and need to crack it in order to access the computer, the password can be retrieved.
Step 1: Type in what you think the password is and press the right-pointing arrow next to the password bar. If you entered the wrong password, you'll get a message saying the password is incorrect and a hint for the password will appear.
Step 2: Use the hint to try to remember the password. If you still can't remember, log into an administrative account on the computer that is not password protected, or have someone that knows the password for the administrative account log into that account.
Step 3: Click "Start/Control Panel" once the administrative account has been logged into, then select "User Accounts" and "Manage another account."
Step 4: Click on the account that you want to crack open and then select "Remove password" so that the password on that account is removed.
Step 5: Click "Start/Log Off" and then access the user account for which the password had been forgotten. Now you've cracked the password and gained access to that account.
