You can set up Microsoft Windows with multiple user accounts, each with its own password provides the option to create a password reset CD that you can then use to reset Windows password that's forgotten. If you don't have a password recovery CD available, you can still reset the passwords through your administrator account.

Firstly, make use of Windows Administrator account for Windows 7 password recovery: you should log into Windows under the administrator account, and then click the "Start" button. When you type "lusrmgr.msc" into the Search field, press the "Enter" key, then you will enter the administrator password to confirm that you wish to open this file (Please note that you should have access the account when you forgot Windows password, otherwise, this would not be helpful.). Now Double-click the "Local Users and Groups" icon. Select the "Users" tab. And right-click on the user account that needs its password recovery. Click the "Set Password" option from the drop-down menu. Finally, type the new password in the two fields that are provided. Click "OK" to accept the change.

Or you can use the safe mode to reset Windows password. There are 3 safe mode options: safe mode, safe mode with network and safe mode with command prompt, but here only shows you detailed instructions on how to bypass windows XP password by safe mode with command prompt, which will starts Windows in safe mode with a command prompt window instead of the usual Windows interface.

Enter net user Jack 123456 on command prompt and press Enter. This command line means that you want to reset the lost "Jack" account password to "123456". When it takes effect, you'll be able to logon the Jack account with the new password of "123456".
