    Hello Dj
    Somehow if You Forgot your WINDOWS Password , The First Thing a user come up in his mind about FORMATTING which may cause the lose of DATA.
    Few Methods like Hiren's Boot CD , Many Alternative Recovery like Ophcrack Live CD for different Versions of WINDOWS consumes alot of time and doesn't get always successfull.
    Here m gonna provide a simple and HANDY Solution for this.
    [​IMG]

    Requirements : Any LINUX LIVE CD only , for simplicity i Suggest PUPPY LINUX. [LIGHTEST LINUX of about 200-230Mb Only]

    Steps :
    - Insert Live CD and BOOT from it. You may Make it Bootable either by USB Flash by using this.
    [ You may need to turn OFF Security BOOT Features for UEFI Bios ]
    - Locate the drive where WINDOWS is installed.
    [ Goto Windows/System 32 Folder ]
    - Search for a File named "cmd.exe" and just rename it.
    [ Let it be "cmd0.exe" ]
    - Search another File with name "sethc.exe" and rename it to "cmd.exe".
    - Finally rename "cmd0.exe" to "sethc.exe".
    - SHUTDOWN and reboot your System.
    - Press Shift Key 5 - 6 Times a the login screen.
    [ This'll open the Command Prompt ]
    - Type "net user" without Quotes and hit ENTER.
    [ This'll shows you the list of Active Users Accounts ]
    - Type " net user<space><Your User Account Name><Space>* ".
    [ This'll display you to enter New Password ]
    - Enter any New Password and Confirm or leave it blank to remove password.

    DONE !!
    Please Don't Abuse it.

    Note : Don't forget to change back sethc.exe to cmd.exe afterwards and vice-versa
