Remove Administrator Password with HBCD in Windows 7 Starter

I get a Dell laptop with Windows 7 Starter, but no password gotten to login into it. I wish to get full privileges to do everything on this laptop, so how to remove unknown administrator password in Windows 7?

Probably, you know CMD or other ways that could reset Windows 7 administrator password when you can access to computer.  But now any user password for Windows 7 login is not known, it would become different.  So take free and powerful Hiren’s BootCD to help you.

Hiren’s BootCD is a powerful tool, which looks small but contains a number of diagnostic programs such as data recovery tools, MBR tools, BIOS tools etc. And there is Password/Key Tools program that could reset administrator password on generic brand laptops or bypass Windows login password.

2. Burn it into bootable CD ROM.
Burn media is chosen according to your PC, laptop or notebook situations.

You would see these programs for Windows password reset or remove. 
  • Offline NT/2000/XP/Vista/Vista/7 Password Changer: Windows Password Reset 
  • Kon-Boot: Windows (any/blank password) and Linux (kon-usr) Login without a password
When you click “More” on Hiren’s BootCD screen, you would see more other programs contained in it.

Remove Windows 7 Logon Password with Kon-Boot 

Kon-Boot is one tool which could boot from BIOS and change contents of Windows kernel and let you login Windows system without password temporarily. And when you restart computer next time, original password will be asked again to access Windows.

1. Select Kon-Boot and press Enter to run it.
You would see a white screen will pop up.

2. Press any key and a black screen will popup showing the process of hooking BIOS functions.

After a few more seconds the computer will start to boot normally.

3. When Windows logon screen appears, simply type anything is the password box, or leave the password field blank.

It is easy and good way to bypass Windows password to logon. But it is known that not every computer’s BIOS will allow Kon-Boot to work, but the majority will be fine if the operating system is compatible.

What it can work for: 32 bit version of Windows 7/XP/Vista and Windows server 2000/2003/2008.
What free Kon-Boot couldn’t work for?
  1. It doesn’t work with 64-bit Windows.
  2. It is not compatible with any versions of Windows 8.
These two password recovery tools in HBCD surely could solve could solve Windows 7 logon problem. But it maybe look a little more difficult for computer novice. Every step to reset Windows password is described with only words in program, so we need to read them carefully and then make a decision. Compared to them, Windows Password Genius provides more user-friendly interface and fewer steps to reset all of Windows system password for all the generic computers.
