The default administrator account on Windows 7 is disabled. If you don't want to reinstall the OS (Windows 7), you can create a password reset disk to reset the forgotten password. (How-To)

osvaldo, this one coming to you directly from Microsoft " Welcome to Microsoft Answers Community.

You cannot reset it directly as a reset way function. However, you can

remove that password and type a new one instead, by following the steps

here -> Restart your PC, and hold the F8 keyboard button and as You

enter the Windows® Boot Menu you will see some different choices,

choose Safe Mode with Networking. Now Windows® will start in Safe Mode.

Select the default Administrator account from the login, the password

can be blank. If you are lucky and passed the login, then you’re able to

edit your original account." I hope this will help you out. Good Luck.

There are 3 ways for you to reset your lost Windows 7 password:

Way 1: Use a Windows 7 password reset disk

When you create a user account on PC, Windows 7 allows you to create a password reset disk in order to help you reset password afterwards when you forgot Windows 7 password. If you don’t have a foresight to create this disk before you lost password, then refer to part 4. Here is a simple guide to reset Windows 7 password using this password reset disk.

Step 1: Insert the password reset disk into your PC, click “Reset password” and click “OK” in the pop-up window.

Step 2: Select the password reset disk, click “Next”, and then type your new password to complete the process.

Way 2. Try an administrator account

Want to reset Windows 7 password without disk? If you are lucky enough to get someone who has an administrator account or a user account which has the administrator privilege on your PC, then you can try to use the password to sign in your PC for Windows 7 password reset. However, the most important thing you should know is that this method brings big risks: your account will lose access to its encrypted files, e-mail messages, and the stored passwords for websites or network resources, etc. If you don’t want any data loss, refer to Way 4.

Way 3: Use Windows Password Recovery Tool Ultimate

Step 1: Download and install the tool on any available computer.

Step 2: Insert a bootable CD/DVD or a USB flash drive on the computer. In the pop-up window, select “Reset Windows local account password”, choose your CD/DVD or USB flash drive, and click “Burn”.

Step 3: Start you PC and insert the newly created CD/DVD or USB flash dive on the PC.

Step 4: After the program initializing, choose the Windows installation, select administrator account, enter a password, click “Reset” and “OK” in the pop-up windows and click “Reboot”.
