[How-To] Reset Lost Windows Login Password The Easy Way



Your Windows administrator password is the password you use to log on to your computer with administrator level functions. You can help keep your computer more secure by changing your Windows administrator password regularly, and by using a strong password. However, here comes the problem that you could probably forget your Windows administrator password because of its flexibility and complexity. And when you lost your Windows administrator password, how can you get out of the situation without formatting and re-installing the operating system?

Reset Windows Login Password

Do not worry, as far as I know, there are several methods that could help you to gain access to the system.

One of them is by trying hard to remember the forgotten password, or a password of another user who also has the administrative rights to withdraw your old one’s. However, I don’t think this way will bring you any good news; otherwise you wouldn’t be sitting here searching for help, would you?

Another one is by trying to restore a backed up System State (in Windows 2000/XP/2003) or a ERD (in NT 4.0) in which you do remember the password. However, there is a disadvantage here that you will probably lose all of the latest added users and groups, what is more, so will all the changed passwords for all of your users since the last backup was made.

The third one is to install a parallel operation system on a different partition on the same computer, then use a simple trick to gain access to the old system. The problem with doing so is that it is not easy if you are not a techie and it takes time if you want to do it in a short time.
