I forgot my windows 7 password, how to reset with USB drive?

Hello, I accidentally locked my computer and now it’s asking for the username and password (windows 7). Unfortunately I have forgotten both. Is there any way to reset this? Most people said it can be reset by USB reset disk, i do have 8 GB usb flash drive, but I don’t know how to reset my windows 7 password with USB drive?

It it too late to make a password reset disk as this should be done before the time you forgot the password. There are other tools available for this such as UUkeys Windows Password or Ubuntu Live CD. However, the later method is a bit trickly as it involves linux commands during the process.

This link should help.

It seems a good option. I just made  a password reset disk with the program and tested it on my Windows 10. It works great. I suggest you give it a try. Here is the tutotorial: http://www.uukeys.com/reset-windows-7-password.html

P.S. Don’t forget to disable UEFI in BIOS settings or the computer won’t boot from USB drive.

It should be noted that the tutorial link references apps costing $17.95 - $39.95  according to http://www.iseepassword.com/store.html  Which one did you try llamaths?

 Offline NT Password Resgistry Editor and Ophcrac are used to be great tools for password reset. but they doesn’t work on UEFI based computers. There are still other ways to fix it:
