Hi,

I bought a new computer and I'm using Windows 7 in it.

The problem is , I forgot the password of my account. How can I recover the password? I don't have any valuable data, in my new PC but  I still want to recover it,  without re-installing Windows. Is it possible ?

Please help.

Hey,

Did you create a password recovery disk ?

No. I never created a password recovery disk.

Is it possible to recover it without any recovery disk?

Reboot your PC and start it in safe mode by pressing F8.  See if it asks for a password or not. If not,  then

1. go to control panel

2. select user accounts

3. select the user, whoever  forgot the password and reset it.

You can use the Windows Password Reset. Download it from the link below:

And then, make a CD/DVD Windows Password Reset disk. Restart your computer and boot from the USB or the CD/DVD where the Windows Password Reset is saved. Choose the user where you want to reset the password and then click the Reset button to launch the Windows 7 password reset. Reboot your PC and login using a blank password. Follow the onscreen instructions.
