Deukriely

 

You need to Google for Trinity Rescue Kit, download the ISO file, and make a CD or USB stick from that. 

 

When you boot from that, it will give you the option to blank your password.

 

Once you have done that, you can then login to Windows and reset it.


Good Luck

If you type the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows displays a message that the password is incorrect. Click OK to close the message. 1. Click Reset password, and then insert your password reset disk or USB flash drive. 2. Follow the steps in the Password Reset wizard to create a new password. 3. Log on with the new password. If you forget your password again, you can use the same password reset disk. You don't need to make a new one.

I have prior experience with Ubuntu Live CD which needs some basic knowledge about Linux. For easy solution, UUkeys Windows Password Recovery is a nice one, which will guide you through to make a password reset disk with USB drive.

It is a bit tricky to use Ubuntu Live CD as you should Linux command. So it is not a good choice for beginner. The easiest way is to use password reset disk, which needs to download recovery image and  a branded new USB drive. If you have both, then here is the tutorial: how to reset windows 7 password

 

Hope this helps. It also works on Windows 8 and Windows computer.

You can NOT make a reset disk NOW -- that has to be made when you are able to login to Windows, and as you CLEARLY indicated in your first post, you do NOT have a reset disk!

 

I already provided you a solution in my response -- that will create a reset disk.


Good Luck
