Option 1: Dell Windows 7 password reset by other accounts with admin rights

Option 2: Recover Dell Windows 7 password with command

Is image file and .iso not the same? I have managed to get a password reset program but it always says there is nothing in the partition drive when I try booting from the USB flash drive.

An iso is an image, yes.

However, you can't run an iso without mounting it in a virtual drive or burning it to a disc and putting that in your cd/dvd drive.

Do that and run it from disc instead of the USB drive.

I already have the .iso image burned into a disk. It doesn't work either way. So I'm literally screwed since I have tried every option. I want to take it to the store so they can't do it themselves, except I'm behind on payments and I don't know if that will prevent me from using my insurance?

As my experience, there are some effective solutions for Windows 7 password recovery

Option 1:Use Windows 7 password reset disk

That should be the first one to solve the problem when you realize you forgot Windows 7 password, if you didn't create the disk in the past, you can DIY a password reset disk through a third-party tool.

Option 2 : System repair disc

In addition to Win 7 password reset disk, System Recovery Options is another Windows feature that allows you to recover password. If you have a system repair disc, the steps in this post are for your Windows 7 password reset:

This two options are the most used methods when people forgot their Win 7 password. However, if you try the both tips and fail for your Windows 7 password recovery, the below guide shows you another two efficient tips.

Trick 1: Using Windows 7 default Administrator account

Windows 7 OS has a built-in administrator account which is created during Windows installation without password, and disable by default. You need to enable that account before losing your other admin account password. Or in this tip your built-in administrator account won’t appear in the screen.Suppose we have lost Mosoh account password.

1. Start your computer and press "F8" while the computer boots up. The Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

2. Scroll down to "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" and press "Enter." Your computer starts in Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

3. Select the Administrator account that appear in the screen, then enter command prompt.

4. Type: "net user Mosoh 123456" and press "enter" button, it will show you a message that ”the command completed successfully".

5. Restart your computer, then you can log in as Mosoh with the password 123456. You can go to control Panel to change your account password if necessary.


Trick 2: Using Windows Password Key to crack password

If you haven’t enabled the default account before and you need to log in your system as soon as possible, this trick will help you regain access to your pc within 5 minutes without losing any data.

Step 1: Log in any available computer that you can access to and allows you download. Download and install Windows Password Key in that computer.

Step 2: Run and burn the program to a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Step 3: When finish, insert the disk to your locked Computer and make your computer boot it from the disk by changing the BIOS setup, then you can follow the instruction to reset your password. It’s 100% recovery, so I’m sure you’ll enter your system with that account.

Linux has many different programs to unlock windows user accounts. I just can't think of one of the top of my head.

I think Hiren's Boot CD is the way to go. Never fails.
