How to Bypass Windows 7 Logon Password After Forgotten

By | Jul 29, 2014

Locked out of Windows 7 system and couldn’t login? How to log on to Windows 7 if you forgot the administrator password? PCUnlocker is an amazing bootdisk that can help you bypass Windows 7 logon password, and unlock a disabled, locked or expired user account.

To get the software to work, you will need to make a PCUnlocker Live CD from another computer. Boot your locked Windows 7 system from the Live CD and you can easily bypass forgotten logon password in the Security Accounts Manager (SAM). These instructions are written assuming a bootable CD is being used, but are essentially the same for a bootable USB drive.

How to Bypass Windows 7 Logon Password?

  1. Download the PCUnlocker software using an alternative computer. Once downloaded, extract the ISO file (pcunlocker.iso) from the ZIP file.
  2. Next download and install ISO2Disc, a freeware for making bootable CD or USB drive. Run the ISO2Disc program, click on Browse button to select the PCUnlocker ISO image.

    Create a PCUnlocker Live CD

  3. Choose your CD/DVD recorder and click on Start Burn to make a PCUnlocker Live CD.
  4. After you’ve created a PCUnlocker Live CD, put it in the CD drive of the locked Windows 7 computer you want to bypass the password for.
  5. Power on the computer and quickly press the key indicated in the POST screen (i.e. DELETE key, F2 key, F12 key) to enter BIOS Setup. The exact key depends on your computer – if you don’t see the appropriate key displayed on your screen, consult your computer’s manual.
  6. Once you’re in the BIOS Setup, go to the Boot menu. Change the boot sequence and set your computer to boot from CD/DVD first.

    Change boot order in BIOS

  7. Press F10 to save your changes and exit the BIOS.
  8. The computer will then restart from PCUnlocker Live CD. After a while, you’ll see the PCUnlocker program and it shows you a list of local accounts stored in the Security Accounts Manager (SAM).

    Reset Windows Password

  9. Choose a user and click Reset Password button, the program will unlock / bypass your forgotten Windows 7 logon password immediately.
  10. Now take out the Live CD. The next time you boot, Windows 7 will load up on its own without asking for a password. If you’re on a multi-user computer, the logon screen will still appear after starting Windows 7 but when you click on the user that had the password removed, you will not be prompted for a password and will instead enter Windows automatically.
