Forgot windows login password

HP mini 210-2013eo
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Forgot the windows login password, since we have not used this pc for a very long time, and password hint did not help us. Need help to be able to log in again. 😉

 

Hope you can help us!

 

Kind regards, Vigdis R

Forgot windows login password

You can reset forgotten Windows password using Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, Windows install media or Ophcrack:

It's recommended that you backup all important files on your hard drive. Note that all password reset/recovery tools won't work if bitlocker encryption was turned on your computer.

Do not want a system revovery, and loose all files and photos on HD. Will check out recovery software, like mentioned in the other answer I got 🙂

Forgot windows login password

Hello. Have you resolved your problem? When you forgot Windows 7 login password, either a Windows 7 setup disc or a recovery tool can help to reset your password without losing data on the computer.

Forgot windows login password

Hi Mitchell!

I never got around to download and try any software to fix our problem. I was a bit sceptical about what software to use, afraid I might download malware instead.  

Today, out of the blue, my daughter remembered her password, so our problem is fixed for now, but I will take precoutions to make sure this does not happen again!:smileywink:

The windows password refixer seemed like a good program, and I think I would have tried this software, if my daughter had not remembered  the password today.:smileyhappy:

 

Thanks!
