Recover forgotten Windows administrator/user password
You should know that to recover password of an account, it doesn’t run within Windows. Instead, it allows you to create a recovery disk on USB or CD/DVD. Post that, you need to boot your computer using the USB drive by changing the boot order from your BIOS.
Once you boot from the recovery drive, it will detect the Windows Installation drive, and scan it for users. Select the user from the list, and click Reset Password to remove its password or reset it to what you like. I would suggest keeping it blank to avoid any confusion.
In case you need to add another administrator, you can click Add User to create a new administrator for the computer. Type username and password for the user and click OK.
Select to Reboot your PC. As soon as it restarts, remove the recovery USB drive, and it will straight away boot the installed OS.
Post this, when you recover your account, make sure to set up a password which you can remember. Setup favorite question, answer, and note it down somewhere. You should know that it doesn’t harm your data on the computer. It stays intact.
Note: The free version of the software allows you to create a new administrator account. This will help if you have forgotten admin password.
The software is also available for Android and Mac OS X. It comes in four versions and you can buy it here from its official homepage.
