In order to reset computer account password, you need to pass through a few steps. First, you need to restart your computer, but this time in Safe Mode Command Prompt (F8). After the loading process is ready, type: net user (the name of the administrator account)/active:yes/. Next type: shutdown -r and wait until the Windows complete the restart process.

I know an easy way to get you out the trouble. Here is how to:

  1. Download and launch Windows Password Recovery Tool Ultimate ( on the workable computer. Then insert a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive into the workable computer, and burn an ISO image file to the device with Quick Recovery or Advanced Recovery Wizard.

  2. Pull out the created password reset disk and insert it into the locked computer, and set BIOS to boot the locked computer from the disk. If your computer is preinstalled with Windows 8 and use UEFI, you have to disable UEFI Secure Boot before the BIOS setting.

  3. Then you will see interfaces of Windows Password Recovery Tool Ultimate, follow the instructions on them to reset your Windows password.
