Recommended Posts

I forgot my Windows 7 Password, Dell laptop, I already tried to remember passwords and tried all candidates with all possible combinations of caps lock, num lock etc. But none of them works. I need to login to my computer and get my work document, any suggestion ?

Easiest would be to use a Windows 7 install DVD, but that will RESET the password (which may or may not be what you want):
http://reboot.pro/topic/15751-reset-a-forgotten-windows-7-password-without-using-any-third-party-software-how-to-tutorial/
or a mini Linux distro:
http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

if you have a USB stick you can have a go at PassPass (shameless plug):
http://reboot.pro/topic/18588-passpass-bypass-the-password/

the difference is that this latter will not modify your existing password, thus allowing you to log in with *any* password and then from the "normally" booted system you can run software to recover the actual password you have forgotten and (hopefully and in due time) recover it.

P.S.: I am pretty sure the above works also for your HP (for which  you also lost the Windows 7 password):

In any case don't worry, soon a new member will give you a link to a Commercial tool, and you will optionally be able to post again confirming how it solved your issue.

A reset disk is the best way to do that. There is no need for windows installation dvd. Plus, computers with DVD drive become less and less now. Don't know how to make a reset disk?

Well you can put an ISO on a usb stick, so not having a DVD drive isn't too big of a deal.

:crazy: The Linux Distros are extremely small (as in CD, not DVD). Got one sitting here in my "toolbox" tray. Regardless, any bootable-to-USB will work, Not sure, but I belive I have the associated Boot Floppy (set) for that same software, so any Grub4DOS USB stick should do it.

Interesting.  Just shows that a bot can post a legitimate question on the board, with several valid free solutions which our valuable members are happy to supply, without a a companion bot posting a commercial solution -- yet. :)

Cheers and Regards

Maybe the reply bot got lazy...
Then again maybe it's still on its to-do list, but with all those new IoT garden-sprinklers to spam, it wasn't able to do it just yet...

But I have no password reset disk, any other suggestion? I found many password reset tools like iSeePassword, UUkeys and dadasoft and more... most of them works but not free, is it possible to buy them?

please make some suggestion, thanks!

No prob :), grell72 has just posted the expected link to a Commercial product.

@submix8c
The whole point of (again a little plug) of PassPass is that you need ONLY grub4dos and the grub4dos batch script, and not any PE or Linux distro, nor any fancy program, besides - addotionally - providing the possibility of recovering the old password (as opposed to resetting it).

It may depend on which tool you choose to try.

Ahhh! I see! Therein lies the advantage then. Maybe the OP may need a link/links to a basic tutorial on booting USB using G4D? Or MAYBE read that PassPass link since it's pretty straight-forward and hass simple How-To instructions? Allow me to repeat it -

Yep :), JFYI, and just in case, there is also the Steve6375 version which comes with RMPREPUSB/Easy2boot:

http://rmprepusb.blogspot.it/2013/06/passpass-for-e2b-now-available.html

http://rmprepusb.blogspot.it/2014/09/passpass-for-win-81-x64.html

And there is a PEPassPass (should someone need it from a PE and/or an a UEFI only machine) by Boulcat, still JFYI:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/163190-passpass-bypass-the-password/
http://reboot.pro/topic/20045-pepasspass/

though of course it loses some of the simplicity of the original grub4dos script.

There are many other free password recovery softwares and methods:

https://www.lifewire.com/free-windows-password-recovery-tools-2626179

https://www.top-password.com/blog/reset-windows-10-password-with-sticky-keys/

Most of the tools are boot discs based on Linux or WinPE. To burn the ISO to USB, you can use Rufus, ISO2Disc, YUMI, Universal USB Installer, WiNToBootic, UltraISO, etc.
