FREE: Reset Windows 7 Password with Chntpw Live USB - Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

This tutorial will show you how to reset Windows 7 password with the free Linux Live USB - chntpw (Offline NT Password & Registry Editor).

If you forgot your Windows 7 password and don't have a reset disk or another administrator account, you can use Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to remove your password. This will allow you to log into Windows 7 without a password.

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor is a free program that allows you to remove a Windows 7 password. It's a very powerful program that can be used to do a lot more than just remove passwords, but we'll just be using it for that purpose here.

To use Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, you'll need to create a bootable CD or USB drive. You can do this with the program itself, or you can use another program like Rufus. Once you have a bootable drive, boot from it and you'll be presented with a text-based menu.

From the menu, select the option to "Edit user data and passwords". You'll then be presented with a list of all the user accounts on the system. Select the account you want to remove the password for and press the Enter key.

You'll then be asked if you want to clear the user's password. Press the y key and then Enter to confirm. You'll be asked to confirm again, so press y and Enter once more.

The process will then start and you'll see a lot of text scrolling by. Once it's finished, reboot the computer and you should be able to log in without a password.

If you're looking for a more permanent solution, you can use a program like Kon-Boot to bypass the Windows 7 password entirely. Kon-Boot is a program that modifies the Windows kernel to allow you to log in without a password.

Once you've installed Kon-Boot, simply boot from the Kon-Boot CD or USB drive and you'll be able to log in without a password. Kon-Boot is a paid program, but it's well worth the money if you need to bypass a Windows 7 password on a regular basis.
