My uncle forgot his password to his pc. Is their anything to do to get into his pc? He does however have a guess account that he can log into but he wants the password to the administrative account.

Since Brink has this tutorial, I have to believe it's okay to post a link to it.

User Account Password - Change from WinRE

You or your Uncle will need a Windows 7 install DVD or flash drive to boot from.


If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, or it's not up to the Service Pack level currently installed, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file. Just be careful during the install not to accidentally install some of the bundled junk that comes with it. Always take The Custom Install option.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO.
The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

If you are just using the Recovery Console you do not need a key.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
  1. Download and run Universal USB Installer Easy as 1 2 3[/*]
  2. Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom[/*]
  3. Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file[/*]
  4. Select your USB flash drive[/*]
  5. Click Create[/*]
For techies or folks who work on computers:

Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.

This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.
