Password Recovery / Forgot Windows Login Password - Free Online Tutorial

If you have lost / forgot / corrupt your windows login password, here is an easy way to recover it back without the need to format your PC or losing your personnel files. This method uses a boot CD called Hiren's Boot CD, this CD boots from your PC and runs independently without the need of your OS. So, it can run from the CD itself and it can do all the operations on your system.

You can also backup your files by booting into an Operating System called mini Windows XP or Mini Windows 7. From there you can go to My Computer and you can Copy / Move and Delete your files from there.

From the Mini Windows XP/7 you can open and run lots of Software tools from the CD which also runs independent from your Operating System. So, here we are going to open a kind of tool which will delete your Windows Login Password.

So, open HBCD Menu and open Programs, find the category Passwords / Keys there, then find the category Windows Login from there, there you will find a software called NTPWEdit, and just open it.
