For many of us, remembering our passwords is a daily chore and recovering a windows password is not always as straight forward as it should be. It can be tempting to simply use slight variations of the same one. However, with more of our personal information now floating around somewhere in the virtual cosmos, it has never been more important to protect our digital property.
With this in mind, the major question, as we begin to spiral faster and faster into the internet age, is simply:
Are Passwords Enough?
Reality is; the more we use online platforms for both our personal and business dealings, the greater the risk becomes. This increases further with the ever growing use of mobile technology, too.
Alternatives to passwords have, of course, been in existence now for a long time, with varying levels of success. It has to be said that there is a certain amount of anxiety towards new biometrics technologies, which isn’t there with ‘good old’ passwords.
So What is the Solution?
EyeVerify, a technology company launched last year, believe they have found the answer. You can probably guess from the name that this new technology has something to do with the eye, but it’s how the process works, which is interesting. You’ve heard of fingerprints and more recently, voice recognition, but EyeVerify instead uses the veins in your eyes as its authentication method.
Why your Eyes?
Similar to fingerprints, eye vein patterns are unique and, thus, can provide instant authentication. Within the hardware, there is also the ability to detect ‘life’ and’ thus, it is impossible for someone to copy your print.
The fact that a simple glance can act as a password also makes the process easy, and ensures that you don’t fall victim to the password memory lapse, which affects so many of us, and have to rely on Windows password recovery tools.
With 12 million individuals in the US, during 2011, having been at the receiving end of identity theft, and research suggesting that social media and smartphones are regular targets, it is clear to see that biometrics is a rapidly growing market.

Forgot your Windows 7 Password? Our guide to Windows 7 Password Recovery Solutions is here to help you. Windows 7 is arguably the best operating system for PC users, at least for a small business or home user setting. Linux isn’t practical for the average computer user, and Microsoft really did a great job improving over Windows Vista in a lot of ways. None of this matters if you don’t remember your password, though, does it?
In this Guide To Windows 7 Password Recovery, we’re going to cover all the basics of getting back a lost Windows 7 password using only the very easiest of methods. With several simple solutions to recover your password, there is no need to settle for anything less than quick, simple and affordable. With that in mind, the first solutions that will be discussed are easy and free but they will only work in certain situations. Next, we’ll look at some paid solutions and help you choose which one is best for your situation.
Here’s a quick look at the different solutions that we are going to be covering.
1) Using An Administrator Account For Windows 7 Password Recovery
2) With the help of a password recovery disc.
3) Hiring somebody for Windows 7 password recovery.
4) Windows 7 Password Recovery Software
Using An Admin Account To Change Your Windows 7 Password
If you have access to an administrator account, it’s very easy to change your Windows 7 password. The problem with this great plan, however, is that most people reading this won’t have access to an administrator account for one of two reasons. The first reason being that they aren’t an administrator on their network, and the second reason being that the administrator password is, infact, the password that is lost and needs to be recovered.
If you do have access to your administrator account, you are in luck! You’re one of the lucky few who will have their password problems solved with this very first step. Here’s all it takes…
- Click on the Windows Icon in the bottom left corner, and then click Control Panel.
- Click on “User Accounts and Family Safety”.
- Click “Change Your Windows Password”.
- The first option will allow you to change your password.
The reason this method isn’t ideal for most people is because it requires you to still have access to the account that you want to change the password for, unless you’re using an Admin account to change another user’s account of course. If you don’t have Administrator access, but you know somebody at your home or office who does, they will be able to help you change your password using similar steps to the ones outlined above.
Using A Recovery Disc
If you have a password recovery disc already, it’s a simple process to use it to reset your Windows 7 password. This means you knew ahead of time that eventually you will have forgot Windows & Password, and you took preventative measures to prepare for it. Pat yourself on the back! Unfortunately, this isn’t the norm and most people don’t have a password reset disc waiting to save the day. Either way, if you have one – put it to good use! If you do not have a recovery disc, then you now know the importance of preventative measures when it comes to your online and offline computer security. If you want to make a password recovery disc, you can use software to help you with that. They can even help you access your computer if you’re already locked out, by simple using a different desktop to create your recovery disc. We’re going to be taking a more in-depth look at actually creating a password recovery disc when you use software designed for recovering Windows 7 passwords.
If you have any questions about Windows password recovery, don’t be shy to leave a comment and either someone from this site or another visitor will be more than happy to help you out, point you in the right direction, or whatever the case may be. If neither of these two options were relevant to you yet, don’t worry because one of the next two ideas is certain to work for you. Check out Part 2 and you’ll have your password recovered in NO time!
Hiring somebody for Windows 7 password recovery
When hiring somebody to fix your computer for you, you have options. Your local classifieds website such as Kijiji or Craigslist should yield many results for computer repair. Your first choice is if you would like to hire somebody independently who fixes computers on the side, as a hobby. You will find many listings for people like this online. The other option is to hire a local business to fix your computer. Hiring an actual business is generally a better option, even though in some cases it will just be one person, the fact that they’re acting professionally by operating through a business shows a certain level of dedication. When you’ve forgot Windows 7 password, hiring somebody is certainly a viable option. Is it the best option? No, not quite, and there are a few reasons why. You’re relying on this person, and their expertise, but what if they.. frankly.. aren’t very good at what they do? Where does that leave you? It’s not super common, but it does happen where people will bring their system into a shop and due to a mix-up in their records they end up reformatting the wrong computer, leaving you at a loss for all of your documents, settings, accounts and everything else you had stored. Of course, isn’t incredibly common but it helps to highlight the importance of keeping a recent backup of your system.
Windows 7 Password Recovery Software.
When it comes to using software for Windows 7 password recovery, there are a few options to choose from. The preferred type of software to use when you’ve forgot Windows 7 password is one that will help you to create a boot disc. With this boot disc, you’re able to bypass Windows 7 password and reset it, thus granting you access to your PC once again. This is also useful if someone has maliciously gone in and changed your password, they certainly won’t be expecting you to get it back using software.
We recommend a program called Password Resetter for the following reasons. Not only is it simple to use, affordable, easy to install and will have you up and running again in well under an hour, but it’s also backed by a full money-back guarantee. If you aren’t able to recover your password, even if it isn’t the fault of the software, they will give you a complete refund of your entire purchase. That’s a prime example of having nothing to lose if I have ever seen one.
It’s worth noting that Password Resetter also works with most other versions of Windows, not just Windows 7, so don’t worry if you got all excited then thought it wouldn’t work for you – it more than likely will, regardless of which version of Windows you have installed, just visit the Password Resetter site to make sure.
To wrap things up, hopefully this series has given you some insights and helped you to get your password back. We can all but guarantee that after going through this list, you now have the knowledge or tools necessary to recover your lost Windows password. Should you require any more assistance, please feel free to take a look around this website because we pride ourselves on being a leading authority on information about how to get your lost passwords back, along with internet security in general.

Finally, which method is the one you should try? Try them all! If the methods from Part 1 don’t work for you, basically if it’s already too late to use an Admin account to recover your password, then you can decide between bringing your computer into a repair shop or simple using Password Resetter to fix this yourself. If you’re still not sure, it’s much less expensive to try Password Resetter first, than it is to take your computer into a shop. The advantage of this, of course, is the Password Resetter money-back guarantee, remember, you’ve got nothing to lose in giving it a try.
Hopefully this has helped to shine some light on what to do when you have forgot Windows 7 password, and you’re looking to bypass Windows 7 password in order to start using your computer again.Posted in: Windows 7 Password Recovery
