How to do Windows 7 Password Recovery
I forgot my Windows 7 administrator login password! Is there any way I can recover the password? I have a lot of stuff on my laptop, so I don't want to factory reset it. Are there any ideas on Windows 7 password recovery? Thanks!
After consulting my IT friends, I get a quick response. There is a Windows 7 boot disk that will allow me to recover Windows 7 password. It is Linux based and uses a very easy menu system. Any way, I am not a computer expert; I can't listen to this friend for further info. I need a more easy way! Then I wonder if isn't there a program without a boot disk? it would be much easier for me but thanks anyways!
What a pity things is that another friends answered my question:
Not really, most Windows password recovery requires a boot disk, unless the main admin account is not password protected. Try accessing it by pressing f8 during boot and entering safe mode. Once asks for login, press ctrl-alt-del, and type in administrator. This might work. While, I have only one administrator account - the default admin!
I search my password question words via Google, what's surprised me is that here is one site that might help me. It is named Windows Password Recovery Tool that will work for any Windows OS, also include Windows 7. This tool is a well-known professional third party application designed for particularly Windows Password Recovery. To operate such a tool is very easy, even though I am a newbie, I can fully understand and follow the below steps to finish the task. Now, please follow me:
Step 1: Google search Windows Password Recovery, get results from windowspasswordsrecovery.com suggestion;
Step 2: Download needed Windows Password Recovery Tool Professional and install it on an accessible pc;
Step 3: Burn a password reset disk with a blank USB Flash drive.
Step 4: Insert the burned reset disk into password lost computer, and set the computer to boot from USB drive to recover Windows 7 password.
Things now become easy! From this day, I think I will never take such experience make me mad! Now, I get new password for my pc login. What's more, I disable the Windows 7 default Administrator and create a back up admin account!
For security purpose, disabling the built-in Administrator account on our personal computer is very necessary since the default Administrator can do anything to your computer, like delete crucial files, delete accounts and reset other user password etc. So avoid this by making another account which is not names as Administrator but with administrative privileges.
Also, I prepare another way to help me restore forgotten Windows 7 login password - create a password reset disk for my admin account! Dear reader, if you are a Windows 7 OS pc owner, you can also take the following steps to help you save much time once you lost password:
Step1. Insert a prepared USB flash drive into your computer.
Step2. Type "reset" in the Windows search box and select "Create a password reset disk".
Step3. When the "Forgotten Password Wizard" appears, click "Next".
Step4. Select your USB flash drive and click "Next".
Step5. When the wizards finish creating the reset disk, please click "Next" and then "Finish".
Please pay attention to the above method again, to create a password reset disk can only be available if we create it before lost password or need Windows 7 password recovery.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
