  • Reset Windows 7 password by logining as another account with admin privileges.

    If you have another user account which has admin privileges, you can easily unlock Windows 7/XP/Vista password by using "lusrmgr.msc" or "Command".

    Let's see how to unlock Windows Vista password with "lusrmgr.msc" and draw inferences about other cases from one instance to unlock Windows 7/XP password.

    1. Login Windows 7 as administrator. Click on Start, type lusrmgr.msc in the Search Box or Run Box(press both Win+R keys to open Run Box), click OK button.
    2. Local Users and Groups dialog appears, open Users folder. Right-click an user account and select "Set Password".
    3. When a dialog pops up, type a new password twice, type a password hint or not, click OK.
    Note: This method will lead to lose access to all its encrypted files, stored passwords, and personal security certificates.

    Reset Windows 7 Password with CMD (Command or NetUser)

    This method won't lead to lose anything, it is safely.

    1. Logon Windows 7 as administrator.
    2. Click Start, type cmd in the Run box (press both Win+R keys to open Run Box) )or Search box and press Enter key, open CMD.EXE.

    3. When the CMD window appears, type in net user, it will show you all the user accounts of your Windows 7.
    4. Type net user "user name" "new password" (replace "user name" and "new password" with yours), press Enter.
    5. It will show you the command completed successfully, this means that you have successfully resrt the user's password. Restart your computer and login with new password.

    Reset Windows 7 password with recovery program.

    In this method you need to load a Windows password recovery program first, and burn it to a bootable CD/DVD or USB. Then boot your locked computer from it to reset user password offline. So that you can unlock Windows 7 without password.
