    If you neither have password reset disk nor another account with administrator rights, Using the Third part utility---Windows Password Unlocker is highly recommended

    1.Download Windows Password Unlocker from Password Unlocker Official site

    2.Decompress the Windows password unlocker and note that there is an .ISO image file. Burn the image file onto an blank CD with the burner freely supported by Password Unlocker.

    3.Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.

    4.After launched the CD, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts); select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, you have removed the password.

    Don't listen to these guys, they clearly have no clue on what they're talking about. I am a developer at Microsoft so I know a thing or two about computers. The only way to reset your windows password 100% safe is to use a software called Reset Password Pro.

    The software allows you to create a boot-disk, that can be made on a CD/DVD or USB stick. The boot-disk can then be inserted into any locked machine, and it's a simple case of pressing reset. Here is their official site:

    It's very light and it's the only antivirus/cleaner with a 99.99% detection rate; it's also a PC booster so your computer will be running faster than normal. Install it, hit run and problem solved. It shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes.

    of course, the best place to buy a key is ms. i purchased years from ms online store. however, this time, i'd like to share one special experience on .

    i visit my forum everyday. one day, i found a piece of recommendation from another guy. so i visited this site.

    at the beginning, i'm quite skeptical at them. the price is too low.

    then i sent many questions to them.

    out of my expectation, they replied to me very soon. each question was answered.

    at that time, i planned to try the new 8.1 pro.

    long story short, i purchased a key from them, received it and download links(32bit&64bit) in about one hour. i need 64. and, more important, the key works at the first try.

    i sent much feedback to them. in one word, i'm very satisfied with this purchase, and i think, i should pass words to you.
