    Really cool trick to reset windows 7 password

    I typically just use Kon boot, but sadly this program does not work on 64bit versions of windows which really, really, really sucks sometimes.

    With this hack 64bit windows password recovery is a breeze! Enjoy.




    How to Reset Your Forgotten Windows Password the Easy Way


    Forgetting your password is never any fun, but luckily there’s a really easy way to reset the password. All you need is a copy of the Windows installation disk and one simple command line trick.
    Resetting Your Forgotten Windows Password

    Boot off the Windows disk and select the “Repair your computer” option from the lower left-hand corner.

    Follow through until you get to the option to open the Command Prompt, which you’ll want to select.

    First you’ll want to type in the following command to backup the original sticky keys file:
    copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\
    Then you’ll copy the command prompt executable (cmd.exe) over top of the sticky keys executable:
    copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe

    Now you can reboot the PC.
    Resetting the Password

    Once you get to the login screen, hit the Shift key 5 times, and you’ll see an administrator mode command prompt.

    Now to reset the password—just type the following command, replacing the username and password with the combination you want:
    net user geek MyNewPassword

    That’s all there is to it. Now you can login.
    Of course, you’ll probably want to put the original sethc.exe file back, which you can do by rebooting into the installation CD, opening the command prompt, and copying the c:\sethc.exe file back to c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe.
