I recently had a job given to me which required a password reset. Normally this would be done by using the Windows Search button and typing “reset” which would give a wizard which would guide you through making a USB Password Reset . This was for a Windows 7 laptop. Unfortunately, that did not work.
I came across a useful little programme that actually reset all the passwords on this machine of my clients. There are many tools out there that will do this such as iSumsoft Windows Password Tool. Give it a go and see how you get on. Also, the Lazesoft Recover My Password Home Edition Version 4.3.1 is the one I used and the one that worked.
