I have a username and password that Windows 7 demands before logging me in. But someone told me this security feature can be bypassed easily. If so, how can I truly safeguard my PC?

Intruders are available every where and in use to every software of security. Some security users are using their own devised mechanism for squiring very confidential data. In-fact you may try to create a software application of your own logic that displays information only on proper authentication. This is the safest policy. The other thing round is that to use the LINUX machines, you can keep data there and the O S is very much more secured than any other such kind of O S. The MAC OS also tries to do its best. The main thing is you need a NTFS formatted drive that has limited access permission.

If you are looking for a way to change your password without logging in, yes, there is a way and it can be done from the command prompt. All it takes is an administrator account. That means if your computer has more than one administrator account, the user can use the other administrator account to change anyone’s password even if the target user account is also an administrator account.

Anyone with a limited account cannot perform this task so to make sure no one changes your password from the command prompt, make sure your computer has only one administrator account. You can hide the default “Administrator” user account in Windows to play safe but I think it is automatically hidden once you create your own administrator account. Anyway, here’s how to perform this trick.

Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, and then “Command Prompt”. If you are using Windows Vista or higher, right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator” to launch an elevated command prompt. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “net user [username] [password]” and hit Enter. Replace “[username]” with the target user account and “[password]” with the new password. For example:

net user peter 1234

On the other hand, if the username includes a space, you might encounter a problem. To deal with it, enclose the username with quotes like this:

net user “peter chan” 1234
