    Dear Vishal, recently I lost my logon password for my vista. I have tried many times, but failed. I search on the internet and discovered this amazing website. So I downloaded Passware Windows Key Enterprise Edition and burn it in CD. Unfortunately, my laptop doesn’t boot. Then I changed the bootable from bios. Still can’t boot from the CD. Please help me out how to reset my vista.

    If you forget the administrator’s password but still can log on Windows with other user names that have administrative privileges, you may follow the instructions below:
    Right click the computer icon on your desktop, select Manage, find Local Users and Groups, unfold Users folder, right click Administrator, click Set password… in the menu comes up. Click Proceed in the dialog, in the pop-up, enter a New Password and confirm it. Your administrator’s password is successfully reset.
    Guest account may help to log onto Windows, but it has no privilege for you to do the above to reset the administrator’s password.
    If you forgot all user passwords and failed to log onto Windows, there is no other way but to format the OS and reinstall Windows, or resort to sort of software tools to remove the password and log onto Windows. These programs cost some bucks, but are worthy and better than to reinstall the OS causing consequences. The most popular programs are Windows Password Reset 6.0 etc. Generally, these programs are easy to use though turn out to be a scary command prompt to newbie. But do relax and you can fully manipulate. Let’s take Windows Password Reset 6.0 for example. You prepare a blank CD, burn the program onto the CD, boot the locked computer from the CD, come to initiate the program, locate the user name, and proceed to remove its password – all are at ease.
