Windows 7 is the latest release of Microsoft Windows. Unlike Windows Vista, and XP, Windows 7 introduces a large number of new features, such as improved performance on multi-core processors, improved boot performance and kernel improvements etc. Also different from XP, window 7 asks its users to create a password for the built-in super administrator account and to set up a login user account or administrator account. Once you create the login account, window 7 will automatically disable the built-in super administrator account. This is for the sake of computer users’ security. However, it can also cause Windows login problems because people including me always forgot Windows 7 password. Usually we just create one login user account for our computer, except the default super administrator account.
Option1: Let other Windows 7 local user account help you re-login to your PC and reset the forgotten password of another account.
Log into your Windows 7 system with another account and then right click “My computer -> Manage -> Local Users and Groups”. You will soon see all your Windows 7 accounts will be listed there. And you are allowed to quickly set a new password for the account with a forgotten password protected without typing its original password.
This is only based on if you have created more than 1 user account before. If not, please move to the next option.
Taking the freeware to reset your forgotten Windows 7 password could be a risky solution. This is because in most cases those so called freeware or shareware are with virus. When using a third party application, you need to be 100% conscious. Here I know there is a clean and also effective free Windows 7 password reset tool-Ophcrack. It is claimed that 99.9% of alphanumeric Windows 7 passwords have been successfully cracked by it. For more information of Ophcrack, please Google it. However, it is a free application after all. A long and complicated Windows 7 password couldn’t be cracked by it. If you take more safety into consideration, then option3 wouldn’t disappoint you.
