I have a friend’s Window 7 system which has unfortunately run into
the hands of their 10-year-old son who thought it would be cool to
set a password so that his sister cannot use this computer. Now he
has forgotten the password. I am sure his account is the
administrator account since the computer is already locked out. Can
anyone reset the lost Windows 7 password for him please? Any help appreciated. Thank you!”
It’s really annoying when we find our computer locked out for its
password being forgotten or lost. However, if you are a cautious
person, I think there is a way to log onto your computer again without a
need to pay for too much effort. Yes, that is the way using an early
created password reset disk to get back the lost Windows 7 password.
Many people who are cautious have created such a disk when are
setting a password for their computer. If you are one of them,
then just take out your early created disk and start to reset lost
Windows 7 password according to the following steps:
Step 1: Start your computer and log Windows 7.
When typing an incorrect password, you will be reminded. Then insert
your password reset disk in the PC and click Reset password.
Step 2: When the Password Reset Wizard appears, click Next to continue.
Step 3: Select your target disk and click Next.
Step 4: Input a new password two times and type the password hint (Optional), click Next.
Step 5: Click Finish, and you can log on with the new password.
It would be a pity if you did not realize the importance of
creating a password reset disk in advance until you lost your computer
password. However, this doesn’t mean that you will not be able to fix
the problem without such a disk. Instead, choosing a certain
password recovery software application can achieve the same effect.
