Post by: menisopeterly on 25-June-16, 08:43:18
I forgot my windows 7 login password on my MSI laptop, i have a Mac pro (currently using). I tried to reset my windows 7 password but not succeed, If I try to go into safe mode, it still ask for a password,  i've tried lots of different things already but still can't asses to my computer. 

So, please help! how can i reset or remove the login password (no other windows to use, safe mode didn't works, but I do have a usb flash drive)

Thanks!

Search on internet for program called yumi, it creates a bootable usb flash drive for many recovery purposes. A download for windows 7 password helper is somewhere in the bottom of the list, though i can not exactly recall its name.

The name is called Ophcrack, an open source project.

You need to first set the first boot order to CD/DVD, then boot the locked computer. And use the program to reset password of target account.

I didn't think Ophcrack works for me, what other program that can  help reset windows password? Paid or Free software are OK for me!

Either you can create a new user account or you can reset your password using CMD in windows. So follow the steps

1. You need to insert your Windows 10 formatting DVD/CD to your PC or laptop. One thing you need to remember before inserting disc, Disable UEFI, and secure boot process.
2. Now open the command prompt from the start menu.
3. Now replace the utilman.exe with the cmd.exe, and then reinsert your CD disc to your system.
4. Now at the screen, you will go to the Windows 10 Sign-in, now at that page click on the Utility manager icon. You will get the icon at the bottom left.
5. If you have implemented each step carefully then your Command prompt will start
6. Now type the command to create a new user account and further add that account to the local group.
   Net user/add
   Net Local group administrators/add

Now get back to the Log-in page, now you will see the new user account which you have created. You can log in with your new account without any password.

besides, there also many other tools like ntpassword, ophcrack, tunesbro wingeeker tool.

You can download Ubuntu Live ISO (it is free) and make a bootable USB disk:
https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Then boot your computer from USB, and load the chntpw utility to reset your forgotten password:

BTY, if you're a computer technician, you can reset Windows 7 password through a backdoor, without using CD or USB:

Hope these helps!
