How to Reset Windows 7 Password

Windows 7 is the latest release of Microsoft Windows. Unlike Windows Vista, and XP, Windows 7 introduces a large number of new features, such as improved performance on multi-core processors, improved boot performance and kernel improvements etc. Also different from XP, window 7 asks its users to create a password for the built-in super administrator account and to set up a login user account or administrator account. Once you create the login account, window 7 will automatically disable the built-in super administrator account. This is for the sake of computer users’ security. However, it can also cause Windows login problems because people including me always forgot Windows 7 password. Usually we just create one login user account for our computer, except the default super administrator account. If that really happens, how would you recover Windows 7 password?

How to reset the forgotten Windows 7 login password at present has been a hot topic among all the Windows 7 issues. I personally as a computer amateur, of course have collected some effective ways to solve that problem. For me, any computer problem if I’ve ever realized, is no longer tolerable.
