  • firstly, i want to know is your PC a Windows  XP,Windows 7 or Windows Vista sytem? If it is a Windows xp, there are two easy ways to reset forgotten Windows password.

    1.use a default admin account to recover Windows password , which is in Windows XP system

    2.Log in to Safe Mode and enter the PC with the built-in administrator account(only for Windows XP)
    When you installed Windows XP you had to set a password for the administrator account. You will need this password to log on. To boot up in Safe Mode, you have to press F8 when your computer starts.


    otherwise, i recommend you to retrieve lost password with Windows password recovery tools, like Windows Password Unlocker , which supports  Windows XP/7/Vista/NT/2000/2003/2008, and crack Windows password in a quick and safe way.
