When you forget your Windows login password, the only way to fix it is to reinstall Windows. However, this is not the only way. If this is the case, the article below can help you solve this problem.
Offline NT Password & Registry Editor is a tool that allows you to solve this problem in a quick and convenient way. With the help of this tool, the Windows product key logon password will be removed and users will be able to access Windows without having to log on the password.
After installation, at the main interface, select Burn ISO Image, click OK. A new dialog box appears, click on Browser, select the extracted ISO file, and then click Burn Disc to burn the file to a blank disc.
Boot Wizard from CD
Sometimes, many computers boot directly from the hard drive. To boot from CD-Rom, follow these steps:
- Open the computer, click the Delete key on the keyboard (sometimes the F10 key).
- The BIOS interface appears. Here, look for the Boot entry, the list of boot device devices listed.
- Press the +/- key on your keyboard to bring the CD-ROM drive to the first position in the list.
- Press F10, select Yes to exit the BIOS and save the settings.
Note: Each BIOS has a different interface and joystick, but most are the same as the instructions above.
Use to recover Windows 7 product key password
In case of forgetting the Windows logon password, boot from the disk already on (how to boot from CD-Rom will be guided below). An interface appears as shown below:
In some cases if something goes wrong, for example, the boot process takes too long, you can try pressing the Enter key on the keyboard to continue.
The tool will need some information from the user before proceeding to clear the Windows logon password.
In the first step, the tool scans your Windows hard drive partition, and then creates two new partitions: one for booting, and another for the whole system. Information about 2 partitions will be displayed on the screen.
The first partition named sda1 has a bootstrap function, and the second partition sda2, which contains information about the system.
Press 2 then Enter.
Next, we will begin the scan of part 2 (containing system information), to find the necessary information in the registry. Once the process is finished and the mouse pointer appears, press Enter to continue to the next step.
The tool will list the registry keys. Press the spacebar (long key on the keyboard) to reach the end of the list. Press 1 to select the password recovery function.
In the next step, press 1 to select "Edit user data and passwords".
The list of Windows accounts will be listed. You can choose to change the information of any account, but it is best to change the information of the Administrator account, to be able to log on Windows and use the full rights.
Type the name of the account you want to select. (Here is the Administrator).
Next, press 1 to delete the existing password on this account.
A message pops up, informing you about the password deletion. Press the corresponding key to perform the following functions:
- Press "!" And press Enter if you do not want to continue deleting the password of other accounts.
- Press "q" and press Enter to exit. You will be asked if you want to save the process. Press "y" then Enter to save the changes. Otherwise, press "n" and press Enter, the above process will be canceled and you will have to restart from the beginning.
The tool will ask you if you want to redo the process from scratch. Press the "Ctrl + Alt + Windows" product key (the Windows logo key is between Ctrl and Alt) to exit, and restart Windows, using the account that has been removed for login.
