    Hello,
    You can change your computer password without formatting you computer only if you are logged in to your account.
    Then you can change it in the following manner.
    1]Press (Windows+R) key
    2]Type cmd in the box.
    3]A black screen will open.
    4]Type "Net user " in it.
    5]Type "Net User " and the account owners name in it.
    6]For ex:Net User Nightmare (Here Nightmare is the account users name )
    7]Then type Net user Nightmare * on it.
    8]The next line would ask you to type a new password.
    (Note:You can type the password in it but you wont be able to see it there and then)
    (Note:This procedure is only applicable for Windows Xp and not for Windows 7)

    Re: How can I change my user password if I have forgotten the user password without formatting the computer?

    Hello,

    If you've forgotten your Windows password, you can reset your password by using a password reset disk

    If you forget your password, you can reset it using a password reset disk for your user account (or the password reset information stored on a USB flash drive ). If you don't have a password reset disk, you'll need to get someone with an administrator account on the computer to reset your password for you.


    Wish you all the best,

    Re: How can I change my user password if I have forgotten the user password without formatting the computer?

    hey!!!!
    i am afraid as far a s i know there is no way to login without password unless you have two separate accounts which i assume from your question you done.
    well you will have to reinstall windows 7 however what you can do is not format your drives other than C.Or also you can remove the harddisk and store the data or take a back up some where which ensures no loss to your data.
    hope this helps..))

    You can change your user password with the account settings of the control panel and the password options are displayed there and also if the user name and password is forgotten then you can re install the windows 7 OS so that you can create new settings of the user's account and also the new changed passwords for the protection of the system.

    Re: How can I change my user password if I have forgotten the user password without formatting the computer?

    If you are the only administrator then you cannot reset the password.
    However if you are a normal user then you can reset your password by logging in as admin.
    The above methods wont work if you are the only administrator of the computer.
    If you have another admin then login in that and in user accounts of control panel
    select the account and give remove password.

    If you have forgotten your local domain or administrative password, then you can use 3rd party tools that will enable you to reset the lost password and logon with a blank password

    Here are 5 of these tools:
    1)Stellar Phoenix Password Recovery - Simple startup utility resets a forgotten admin or users' password using a familiar Windows-like program interface instead of command-line.

    2)Password Kit - Top rated version of Passware's Password recovery app, supports Windows Vista and RAID/SCSI/SATA drives.

    3)Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor - A great boot CD/Floppy that can reset the local administrator's password.

    4)Openwall's John the Ripper - Good boot floppy with cracking capabilities.

    you can download these software for free from the below given link:

    Re: How can I change my user password if I have forgotten the user password without formatting the computer?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.........................

    1.You should have the Reset disk in your Pen drive to open your system.

    2.You have to make it before and then store in your pen drive.

    3.If you do not have that then there is only one solution.

    4.That when you start your system.

    5.and when you reach the password session press the key 'Ctrl+Alt+Delete'.

    6.There you give the another password and then login.

    Have a nice day...........................

    Re: How can I change my user password if I have forgotten the user password without formatting the computer?

    Hi, Dear friend

    To get the password back without re-installing the OS ... simply follow the instructions carefully

    first of all download the Hiren's Boot CD from the internet and for the download visit this link http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/


    which is usually in ISO image .....then burn it on the disk by using the DAEMON TOOLor Burn image tools


    after that insert the disk in to ROM restart the PC .... then it will brings up the message like Boot from CD or DVD ...... then press ENTER key


    in the next step choose Mini windows XP option from the menu.......after that double click on HBCD menu Icon from the desktop


    next choose the Programs option> password / keys > windows login > RESET ( win xp/vista/7) user password


    in the next window there is a link will be appeared in the path to sam file box....in that box shows the location as your HOME DRIVE


    simply change that location ( that is drive letter ) as D or any other drive


    then click on Re open button ..... then select your user name from the list


    now click on Change password button.....then change the password as you like .. click OK


    then click on SAVE CHANGES > EXIT........now restart the PC........and remove the disk ...


    after that login with the new password


    ALL THE BEST!!!!!

    Re: How can I change my user password if I have forgotten the user password without formatting the computer?

    Hi My friend,

    If you forgot your password then the answer is no.there is no way to get the password back. However , if you have other user account then have some chances.

    1. Log in your pc with an user account.
    2. Click Start type "lusrmgr.msc" in search box and press "enter"
    3. Open "users" and then right click a user account which you want to reset password and select "Set password".

    If you don't have any user account-:

    You can unplug the hard disk then connect to any other computer to back up data in C-Drive then reinstall your OS.

    HAVE ANICE DAY...
