How to Bypass Windows Administrator Password

March 19th, 2013 by Admin

I have forgotten the administrator password of my Windows 7 installation and locked out. Is there a way to reset or bypass the password? I do have physical access to the PC.

Few things are more annoying than forgetting your Windows administrator password. Without your Windows password your PC is nothing more than a door stop. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to bypass Windows administrator password which will allow you to login to Windows once again. All you need to bypass Windows password with this method is another Windows PC so you can download the Reset Windows Password utility and make a password reset Live CD/USB drive.

How to Bypass Windows Administrator Password?

  1. To get started, purchase the Reset Windows Password utility and download it onto your current computer. Unzip the download file and you’ll get the ResetWindowsPwd.iso file which contains the password hacking tool.
  2. Next, you need to turn that ISO file into a CD. All you need to do is get a CD/DVD burning program such as BurnCDCC or ImgBurn, which allows you to burn an ISO image to CD or DVD easily! If your computer doesn’t come with a CD/DVD burner, you can use the ISO2Disc program to burn a Windows password reset USB from that ISO image.
  3. Take the Live CD you just created to the computer you want to hack. Insert the CD into the CD drive and turn on the computer. Normally, the BIOS screen tells you the keyboard key you need to press to change the boot order, watch for that message! On most computers the BIOS key is Del, F9 or F12 but yours might be different, so watch out for that on the boot-up menu.
  4. Once you boot from the CD, it will load the miniature operating system and open the Reset Windows Password utility. This program automatically detect all Windows installations on your computer, and shows a list of user accounts existing in your Windows SAM registry hive.
  5. Choose the administrator account you want to bypass the password on and click on “Reset Password” button. It will remove your forgotten administrator password immediately. Remove the CD from the CD drive and restart the computer, you can then log into the administrator with an empty password. Done!

This tutorial is fairly simple to follow even if you are not very techie person. With this trick you can bypass Windows administrator password on any version of Windows operating system, including Windows 8/7/Vista/XP.

February 27th, 2013 by Admin

Have you upgraded to Windows 8 yet? If you have, you’ve probably noticed how important the corners are to navigate in Windows 8. The corners on your screen are hot corners and give you access to different Windows features.

Bottom Left-hand corner

The bottom left-hand hot corner of the screen will allow you to access the Start Screen. When you move your mouse cursor to bottom-left corner, it shows you a small Start Screen thumbnail to go to Start Screen. With mouse left click, it toggles between the Desktop (if opened) and new Start Screen (Metro screen). Right-clicking in the left hand corner will bring up new Power User Menu with all admin tools like Device Manager, Control Panel, Command Prompt, etc.

Top-left corner of the screen

Moving the mouse to the top-left corner and then down will display all the apps running on the computer. Clicking and dragging any of these apps to the left or right-hand side of the screen will snap that app to that side of the screen. Each of these open app icons can also be right-clicked to close or snap.

Right-hand side of the screen

If you move your cursor to top-right corner or bottom-right corner, the new Charms Bar is shown containing direct shortcuts to Search, Share, Start Screen, Device Manager and Settings.

How to Fix the Problem “Windows Won’t Accept My Password”

January 18th, 2013 by Admin

I have been using Windows 7 Ultimate for some time using the same password. I have not, repeat not, forgotten my password, but now it won’t accept it. Why has this happened, and more importantly, how do I get back in? I haven’t got a pre-made disk which will allow me to reset the password.

Windows won’t accept your password even if you’ve typed in a correct password? If your account are not locked out or disabled, it’s likely that you have turned on the NumLock feature that many laptops have. After enabling the NumLock feature, you’ll find a strange problem and you can’t type normal anymore. For example, when you type in “hey, how’s it going”, your computer would type “123456… etc.”. If you later try to type something else it will continue in sequence from before, eg: “7890123… etc”

The NumLock feature is used to convert part of the main keyboard to act as a (slightly skewed) numeric keypad rather than letters. NumLock is rarely used for its original purpose, and ends up confusing the user if it has for some reason been activated without the user being aware of this. This can be more of an issue on most laptop computers, since activating the NumLock function typically requires use of the Fn key and if a user accidentally switches it on they may have no idea how to switch it off.

How to Turn Off NumLock Feature?

Find the NumLock key and press it to reverse things and set it back to normal. On my Dell it’s Fn + F4, on my Compaq it’s Fn + ScrLk. It’s different on every make and model. Based on your keyboard you can get original settings of your keyboard in following ways.

  • Fn + F11
  • Shift + Num Lock
  • Fn + Num Lock
  • Fn + F11 + Scroll lock
  • Fn + F8 (on HP laptop)
  • Ctrl + F11
  • Fn + Shift + Num Lock

Some keyboards have and don’t have the Num Lock key. If there is then just press the Num Lock or NmLk key. Sometimes you have to hold the Fn button with the Num Lock key. If there is no Num Lock key on your keyboard then just follow these steps: START -> ALL PROGRAMS -> ACCESSORIES -> ACCESSIBILITY -> ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD -> NLK.

Find the correct key combination on your laptop and your problem should be solved. If you still can’t log in to Windows, you can use the Reset Windows Password utility to remove your administrator/user password so you can then log on your computer without typing a password. After getting into Windows, you can turn off NumLock feature easier.

How to Burn a Windows Bootable Disk on a Mac

January 4th, 2013 by Admin

I have got a Windows 7 laptop that has crashed and needs to be rebuilt. I no longer have the installation CD, but have downloaded the ISO. As my happy and friendly reliable Macbook is working I thought it would be a simple case of creating a bootable Windows installation disc. Unfortunately I can’t find a Mac app that will let me create a bootable disk. Please help!!!

All Mac computers running the OS X operating system come with the Disk Utility application by default. Disk Utility allows you to manage your computer’s hard drive and removable media, including CD and DVD. If you want to make a copy of a Windows bootable disk, like an installation CD, you can use Disk Utility on a Mac to burn a Windows bootable disk easily.

How to Burn a Windows Bootable Disk on a Mac?

  1. Insert a blank writable DVD into your Mac’s SuperDrive.
  2. Right-click your Windows installation ISO image file and select Open With, then Disk Utility.
  3. This should add the image file to the list on the left side of the Disk Utility window.

  4. Right-click the Windows image and select Burn.
  5. The computer will begin burning the image file onto the DVD, and when the process finishes, the DVD can be used as a bootable disk in Windows.

Note: The disc will only be bootable if the image is set up that way. Not all images translate to a bootable DVD, so check to make sure you have the right type of image file first.

This is a great way to reinstall Windows on a machine with a broken or missing optical drive, or which has suffered some catastrophic nightmare. If you forgot the administrator password for your Windows PC and can’t login, you can also create a bootable Windows password reset disk on a Mac, and then take the disk to reset your forgotten Windows password.
