How To Reset Windows Password When Forgotten
Many times you must have heard people forgetting their administrator password in Windows Vista, and since there is no way to retrieve by usual means, they end of formatting and re-installing the operating system. PC Login Now is one such freeware that is easy-to-use and comes handy in such situations. This free tool is able to reset local administrator and other accounts passwords without reinstall the system.
You can also help maintain, change accounts policy setting and properties. Or easily upgrade a general account to administrator level, lock or unlock those accounts you don’t need anymore and the best thing is, you can do all this without booting your system!
Your Windows registry is protected by Syskey, but PC Login Now can easily bypass this mechanism and reset the Windows passwords. This application can be used in the following areas:
