Any way to bypass the windows 7 login screen

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
At some point over the past year, I remember watching a video on OCN to bring up the task manager or command prompt at the windows 7 login screen.

I can't remember what that video was called. Anyone remember what I am talking about?

I am doing this to reset my credentials back to an Administrator account, as I removed them at 3 AM which I didn't realize I did until I woke up this morning.

I don't think you can access Command Prompt via Login Screen.
Though I do believe you can access it via the Recovery.

You can use Konboot http://www.piotrbania.com/all/kon-boot/ It will just bypass the password, or you can just use Ophcrack to just break the password.

It isn't a matter of breaking or cracking a password, I am aware how to do that.

and mbudden, the reason you would need Command Prompt or Task Manager, is to kill the explorer.exe process, and start it again with a form of Administration command.
