Windows 7 password help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine managed to mess up her password on her computer, not sure how, and can't get back into her computer. I have never had the privilege of locking myself out, so I'm not sure how to get back in. Any way it can be done?

No she did not make a password recovery disk.

The easiest way is to use the PCUnlocker Live CD to boot up your computer and remove the password from there.
