How To Password Reset Disk Windows Vista


In Microsoft Windows, if you need to reset the password of a particular user account, you don’t need to create a reset disk. One way of resetting a password in Microsoft Windows is from the command line using an administrator account. An administrator is required. If you are not using an administrator account, you can do it using the default “Administrator” account in Safe Mode.

Restart your computer then press F8 on your keyboard before the Windows logo appears to boot your computer in Safe Mode. In the login screen, click on the “Administrator” account instead of your user account to log in. After logging in, click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, and then “Command Prompt”. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “net user [username] [new password]” then hit Enter.

Replace “[username]” with the user account you want to change the password. Replace “[new password]” with the new password you want to use for the account. For example:

net user Pete some124

In case the user account is not a single word, use double quotes to enclose the username. For example:

net user “Pete Cet” some125
