Windows 7: Login Issues

Winodws 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
Login Issues

So a buddy of mine who still uses Windows 7 Home Premium apparently forgot his password. He doesn't have his Windows 7 Disc nor anything else. Is there a way to fix this? I know if I had the installation media I could go into the command prompt and change it there. Is there another way around this?

HOWTOs | Hiren's BootCD PE

Click the drop down for resetting the password.

You'll need to burn Hiren's boot CD to CD or thumb drive and boot it like you would Windows. You can use ImgBurn portable for a CD or Rufus for a USB drive. I have no experience with Rufus since I've always used optical media for things.
