Hello nfsworldpinoy,

It depends on if you have access to the system or not, and can currently log in to your user accounts in both OS's.

User Account Password - Remove

User Account - Reset Password in Windows 7

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The simplest way is to open a Command Prompt (elevated Command Prompt in Windows 7) and do the following:

Type net user yourusername * and press Enter.

You will be prompted for a password. Just press Enter twice and the password is gone.

To change or add a password:

Type net user yourusername newpassword and press Enter.

Otherwise, do it via Control Panel, User Accounts.
