Indeed, it has now successfully outnumbered Windows XP and become the most popular operation system with the biggest number of users even though Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 are all released recently. Despite this, Windows 7 password is a rather troublesome to most Windows 7 users.

Do you have any idea where your Windows 7 password stored? Actually, in Windows 7, password is stored in the SAM registry hive. Take the administrator password as an example. In general, to find the password to an admin account in Windows 7 may take minutes up to hours depending on the situation. It seems that the password in Windows 7 is safely stored. However, according to some IT experts, the password hints in a scrambled format in Windows 7 can be easily converted into human-readable form. The clue is added to Windows 7 registry when users configure a Windows account to provide a hint about the password needed to access it. Although this stuff seems to be unreadable at the first sight, it can clearly be decoded and could be used by tools that extract the data from the SAM. And the hints are available to anyone who has physical access to a targeted Windows 7 PC.

How to make your Windows 7 password safer?

A strong Windows 7 password is extremely important to WIndows 7 computer security. In view of it, some users set a complicated password consisting of various numbers, characters and symbols. It will greatly improve the system security without doubt. But if the user has bad memory, the complex password can be easily forgotten.

The password reset disk can be repeatedly used to reset Windows password without limitation. You also need to know that, others are also able to enter your computer with the disk.

Meanwhile, update your passwords and use your antivirus software regularly to prevent virus, spyware and other safety problems.

3, Insert the DVD reset disk to my password locked computer, and set BIOS to boot computer from DVD disc

4, 1 minute later, the program interface appears to let me select the OS systems and user accounts to set password for. I check all accounts and click Next to reset the password in a few seconds.

Now the program tells me that all Windows password on the computer are removed.

I restart my computer, and it doesn’t ask me to enter password again. And I can show my Thanksgiving PowerPoint presentation to the family, they are so happy watching it.
