"Hi guys,
I have a friend's Window 7 system which has unfortunately run into the hands of their 10-year-old son who thought it would be cool to set a password so that his sister cannot use this computer. Now he has forgotten the password. I am sure his account is the administrator account since the computer is already locked out. Can anyone reset the lost Windows 7 password for him please? Any help appreciated. Thank you!"

It's really annoying when we find our computer locked out for its password being forgotten or lost. However, if you are a cautious person, I think there is a way to log onto your computer again without a need to pay for too much effort. Yes, that is the way using an early created password reset disk to get back the lost Windows 7 password. Many people who are cautious have created such a disk when are setting a password for their computer. If you are one of them, then just take out your early created disk and start to reset lost Windows 7 password according to the following steps:

Step 1: Start your computer and log Windows 7. When typing an incorrect password, you will be reminded. Then insert your password reset disk in the PC and click Reset password.
Step 2: When the Password Reset Wizard appears, click Next to continue.
Step 3: Select your target disk and click Next.
Step 4: Input a new password two times and type the password hint (Optional), click Next.
Step 5: Click Finish, and you can log on with the new password.

It would be a pity if you did not realize the importance of creating a password reset disk in advance until you lost your computer password. However, this doesn't mean that you will not be able to fix the problem without such a disk. Instead, choosing a certain password recovery software application can achieve the same effect.

Using password recovery software application to reset the lost Windows 7 password
Compared with an early created password reset disk, using a password recovery software application like "Recover Windows 7 Password" doesn't require you to prepare something in advance, one can use it for lost Windows 7 password recovery at anytime and anywhere.

Step3: Burn a bootable CD with the burning software. (It actually means burning the ISO image file of Recover Windows 7 Password to a blank CD with the burning software.)
Step4: Now insert the burned CD to the target/locked Windows 7 computer and set this PC boot from CD-ROM.
