Even though there are many methods and quite a few tools to remove login passwords from Windows, many windows users are still under the impression that an OS reinstall is required to access their PCs. That is no longer true with all the tools available, but you need to select a utility based on your computer skills and your comfort level with using the various techniques available. Choosing the wrong one might waste hours of your time, not to mention allowing dangerous malware to enter your system when you use spurious software utilities.
One of the advanced ways of recovering Windows passwords is to extract the password hashes using specific tools or command line executions, and then use password cracking software to recover the passwords from the hash files. This particular method requires multiple utilities, and can often involve quite a bit of command line work. If you’d rather not use such methods, there is some great news for you. There is a software utility called PassMoz LabWin that can quickly and easily remove any password from a locked Windows computer.
PassMoz LabWin has gone through extensive testing on more than 50 of the world’s top PC brands. It is currently used by millions of Windows users around the world because of its simplicity and ease-of-use. Not only is the software completely self-contained, but the interface and process themselves are intuitive enough to allow even a novice user to complete the password recovery process successfully. By using a simple 3-step password unlock method, the software quickly removes the password for the specified user account and gives you access to your login.
This software utility uses a slightly different method than the one described above. You will first need to create a bootable disk or USB flash drive on a different windows PC that has administrator privileges. Once this is done, you may use this drive or disk to unlock any user account in your Windows PC almost instantaneously.
Let us review the password recovery process using PassMoz LabWin:
Step 1: Download PassMoz LabWin from the official website and complete the installation on the secondary PC. The installation wizard should quickly take you through the setup process, after which you may launch the program. Now insert a writable DVD or CD, or a USB flash drive with at least 3 to 4 GB of free space on it. Once the software automatically detects the disk or drive, click the ’Burn’ option against the appropriate storage medium to initiate the creation of the bootable disk.
Step 2: Once the disk or drive with the bootable media has been created, remove it and insert it into your locked PC. You must now restart your computer from the boot disk or drive. Do this by hitting the F2 key during the boot process so you can access the BIOS menu. Here, you must change the boot priority so that the computer boots from the boot disk or drive that you inserted. It must not boot from the native Windows installation, or you will once again end up at the lock screen without a password to get in.
Step 3: When the system boots from the disk, you will see the PassMoz LabWin interface on your screen. Now select the correct Windows version and the locked user account, and click on ‘Reset Password’. Next, click on ‘Reboot’. Finally, remove the boot disk or drive and keep it in a secure but accessible place in case you need it again later.
When you restart your machine, you will be able to access the locked user account without needing to enter a password. Your Windows password for that account is now successfully reset. Once you log in, however, we recommend that you set up a new password that is strong yet easy to remember.
As you can see, since the software completely removes your password rather than recover it, the process is much quicker and the entire method can be executed in a matter of minutes. If you have any sort of trouble using the software, PassMoz LabWin offers excellent customer support for users of its software.
You may be wondering whether or not this method is legal. Yes, it most certainly is. As long as you’re only accessing your own account this way, it is a legitimate use of the software. Be safe and only use it when you forget your password or if you bought a computer from someone else and later found that it was locked. Under any circumstance, never attempt to unlock an account that does not belong to you or that you are unauthorized to access. This is a criminal offense and you can be jailed for it.
