Resetting the window’s forgotten passwords is very painful task without using the third-party tools. However, there are plenty of windows password cracker or re-setter tools available over the internet which are based on LINUX kernel.
This will help you to reset or hack windows password with the help of windows installation disk. The tool that is required for this is Windows installation Disk and a command line trick. This works perfectly on every version of windows 7.
To reset or to hack the windows 7 password, put the windows installation disk in the optical drive and boot with the disk.
1:- Choose Repair your computer.
2:- Follow the windows steps until you get a window named System Recovery Option. Here choose Command Prompt.
Basically, in this trick we edit the sticky keys executable file (sethc.exe), an executable file, which is responsible for a pop-up windows that appears when we press the shift key more than 5 times. So before editing the sethc.exe file,make backup of sticky keys executable file.
3:- To make the backup of sticky keys executable file (sethc.exe) in the c: drive. The letter C: is the drive letter on which your windows is installed.
copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\
4:- Then copy the command prompt executable (cmd.exe) over top of the sticky keys executable, to do so type:
copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe
This will mount the cmd.exe on the sethc.exe.
5:- Now, Reboot the PC.
6:- On the login screen press the shift key 5 times, and you’ll see an administrator mode command prompt.
7:- Now to reset the password,enter the combination of the username and the password in the following manner “net user username password“, So to change the username and password, type:
net user techfanas 123
here username is techfanas and the password is 123.
That’s all. Now you can login with the new username and password.
Of course, you should put the original sethc.exe file back to its directory, which can be done by rebooting with the windows installation disk, as above opening the command prompt, and copying the c:\sethc.exe file back to c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe as:
copy c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe
Note:- Remember, using this trick you will loose any credentials stored in the Windows Vault, or Internet Explorer passwords and any information encrypted with the Encrypting File System (EFS).
