Oct.26, 2018 15:57. Posted by to Tutorials

If you've forgotten your Windows 7 or Windows login password, there are several ways to handle the situation. You can try to remember the password using previously used password combinations, you can use a utility to recover or crack it, or you could simply create a password reset disk to remove it completely. However, the most effective one is by using Windows password key software, which is able to find out the password in a fast time. This article shows you how to recover or reset it using two different software applications.


Windows Password Key Software 1: Ophcrack

Windows Password Key Software 2: Windows Password Recovery


Method 1: How to Use Ophcrack to Find Out My Local Windows 10/7 Password

Ophcrack is a well known password cracker that will recover your password rather than reset it. New users may be daunted by the interface and the various technical requirements, but the method itself has a fairly high success rate with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 passwords despite its limitations.


One way to use Ophcrack to recover your Windows 7 login password is to download the ISO file to another accessible computer and make a bootable disk that you can use on your locked machine. The second way is to use Ophcrack LiveCD, which requires no installation. Follow the process as described in the section below to use Ophcrack LiveCD:


Note: Since your PC is locked, you will need to execute the first two steps on a second PC or laptop that has an optical drive.


Step 1: Download the ISO file from Ophcrack official website. Be sure to choose the appropriate one for your operating system version. In this case it would be the Vista/Windows 7 version.


Step 2: The next step is to burn the software to a CD or DVD to create a bootable disk. You can do this using ISO burning software.


Step 3: Remove the bootable disk from the second computer and insert it into the locked Windows 7 PC.

Step 5: The software will now start loading. There's nothing to do here, but you should watch how it identifies the partition that contains your password information. After that, you will see a table with usernames and passwords. This is when Ophcrack uses the rainbow tables to get the password. If successful, you will see your Windows 7 login password against the appropriate user name in the NT Pwd column. Note it down. You can now use this password to enter your Windows 7 PC after restarting it. Be sure to remove the Ophcrack Live CD disk before rebooting.


One thing to note is that it can take a long time to carry out this process. Since your password is being recovered, the software has to go through a very large number of character combinations to figure out the correct password hash. If the NT Pwd field remains blank after the software has done its job, that means the password can not be reset. In case that happens, or if you simply want to get the ccomputer unlcoked without figuring out the password, then there is a much quicker way, described in Section 2.


Method 2: How to Find Windows Admin Password via Password Recovery

The software works in a different way from Ophcrack. It is more efficient and much faster, and doesn't require any technical expertise. The software is extensively tested on several Windows versions and all the top computer brands, and the password recovery rate is 95%. The difference here is that it doesn't attempt to recover your password. Rather, it will simply blank or remove it so you don't need a password to log in.


used the password reset disk method of password recovery. You create this disk on another PC and then use it to instantly unlock any locked Windows machine. The best part is that works with a wide range of Windows versions from Windows XP right up to Windows 10 and even Windows Server. It also works on your Microsoft account. In addition, it poses zero risk to your data, unlike most cracking applications. The steps below show you how easy it is to use Windows Password Recovery.

Step 2: Burn Password Reset Disk

Step 3: Boot Locked Windows PC

Now remove the drive or disk and insert it into your locked machine, then restart it. During the startup, press the F2 key to go to the boot menu and change the boot priority. This will allow the system to boot from the password reset disk or drive rather than the Windows 7 installation files on your PC.

Step 4: Remove Password from Windows

Once the boot process resumes, you will see the interface. Here, all you need to do is select the right Windows version, click on the user name to be unlocked and click on "Reset Password". When this is completed, click on "Reboot" and remove the disk or drive so your computer boots up normally.
