I looked throw net and found out that i can crack Windows 7 password through USB Memory stick or CD/DVD, does anyone have any applications that would do that ? it means a lot to me.
Sometimes, if you forgot the Windows administrator or user password, things can get tricky. Aside from using a previously created password reset disk to change your password to a new one, there is no Windows-provided way to help you bypass or remove password on Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Server 2008, 2003. Luckily that's no longer the case, and today we'll take a look at Spower Windows Password Reset software, an easy-to-use and reliable program that can easily override and unlock the forgotten Windows password in minutes. What is more, it enables you to create a new Administrator account.
Now, go and click the button below to download the program and install on any other accessible Windows computer (another in your home or a friend's will work fine).
Today we are going to take a look at using the program to reset password on Windows 7 with its professional version. The process of resetting login password on Windows 8, Vista, XP, NT, 2012, 2011, 2008(R2), 2003(R2), 2000 servers does likewise. Let's begin:
Step 1: Create a Windows 7 password reset disk
Lauch the program, you'll be greeted with a wizard that gives you basic information about how it works…
Simply insert a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive into optical drive, then click the "CD/DVD" or "USB Device" button to create a password reset disc to Windows 7. The burning process could take about one minute to complete. When the burning is complete, pop the system repair disc into the locked computer.
Step 2: Configure BIOS Setup to boot from the disc
Simply restart your computer, press F2, F10 or Delete key to enter BIOS Setup as soon as you see the message "...enter SETUP".
Note: The key pressed to enter BIOS may be different based on different manufacturers, but F2, F10 or Delete are the most common used keys. More information please check out The key or keys combination used to enter BIOS based on different brands of PC.
In this step, you will enter the BIOS Setup. the menu options are listed horizontally at the top of the screen. You can use the instructions given for navigating around your BIOS, locate the option for changing the boot order.
Now, use the arrow keys to switch to Boot tab, and then select Boot Device Priority and press Enter. After that, select 1st Boot Device to "CDROM" or "Hard Drive" according to the password reset disc created in the step 1, and then press F10 to save settings. Then your computer will restart automatically.
Please keep in mind, different PC manufacturers may have different BIOS setting interface. Anyway, find the boot order option (it might be called "Boot Device Priority", "Andvaned BIOS Features", "First Boot Device", "Boot Sequence") and set the boot order.
Step 3: Start resetting a Windows 7 Password
After saving the settings in the step 2, it will automatically boot your locked computer from the disc, then you should eventually see the screen below.
Now, simply choose target user account you want to reset password for, and click "Reset" button to start resetting your Windows 7 password. In Windows 8/ 7/ Vista/ XP, the password will be set to blank (empty password). In Windows Server 2012/ 2008/ 2003/ 2000, the password will be set to Spower@2011 by default.
Once the password reset successfully, remove the disc from the drive and restart the computer by clicking "Reboot" button. That's all there is to it. Now you can login to Windows without a password at all.
Tip: Not having a Windows 7 password is a big security concern, so we recommend you configure a new password right away. Also, please take good care of the password reset disk created previously so you'll never need to worry about forgetting the password to Windows 7 on your computer again.
