Concept: Windows stores its local user accounts in the C:\windows\system32\config\SAM file. If you want to change ANYTHING that is related to the user accounts you do it from this file, but it is of course encrypted. Not a problem! While we can’t read the file and see what password is already assigned to a user, we can sure as hell overwrite it.

Method 1: Bypass windows 7 login password without any CD or Boot Required

Step 1: Shutdown the PC if it’s not done yet.

Step 2: Power ON the computer, and force shutdown when the windows logo screen appears (that’s in order to get into the windows problem detection and repair tool.)

Step 3: If you didn’t die at step 2, again power ON the computer. A black screen should appear, suggesting between start windows system as usual, or “start with recovery tool” or something like this choose this option.

Step 4: Then you will redirected to this tool which looks like recovery. A pop-up should pop-up. Click on “decline”.

Step 5: Then is the longest part: you will need to wait could be from 2 to 15 minutes, depending on the computer.

Step 6: After the process done, a new window will appear in the middle of the screen, with tons of information’s. You are probably asking yourself what is the goal of all this. We are actually doing some basic manipulations in order to find a way to access admin files without connecting. The scroll down, and click on the last line which should be in blue. This will allow us to access all the files of the computer.

Step 7: Try to find the folder with “cmd.exe” which is usually “C://Windows/system32”. Here comes the main manipulation: Sethc.exe is a file that is launched when pressing 5 times on “Caps” button while being on the windows user choosing login page. So, the thing here is that we’ll replace this program with an admin cmd.exe

Step 8: To do so, find sethc.exe, and rename it “sethc-bak.exe”.
Then find cmd.exe, copy paste it in order to create a copy of this, and rename this copy “sethc.exe”. So when we’ll press 5 times on “Caps”, the program launched will be in fact cmd.exe with admin rights.

Step 9: Done! Reboot the computer!

Step 10: When on login screen, press 5 times “Caps” button, then a cmd.exe will appear. Type here:”net user”. This will make appear all users’ name. Once you found the user you want to bypass the session, type: net user “userchoosenremovingthequotes” *

Step 11: When asking for a new password, type it! (It will not be printed, it’s all normal)

Step 12: Access the session!

Method 4: Bypass windows 7 login password with Reset Disk

When you forgot Windows 7 login password and locked out of computer, a password reset disk can really help you. But it only works with the windows 7 system who created the password reset disk. The following instructions show you how to use password reset disk to bypass forgotten Windows 7 password.

Step 1: Starts Windows to log on screen.

Step 2: Click a user account you want to reset its password, and then press “Enter” to log in. When message “The user name or password is incorrect” appears, click “OK”.

Step 3: Click “Reset Password ” text button under password box to start password reset wizard.

Method 5:Bypass windows 7 Login Password through Computer Manager

Forgot Windows 7 login password and no reset disk? If you can get into computer using guest account, you also can reset password through computer manager forcefully.

Steps as below:

Step 1: First logon Windows 7 as administrator. Then click Start, type in the Run box (press “Win+R” keys to open Run Box) “lusrmgr.msc” in the Search Box or Run Box.

Step 2: When “Local Users and Groups” dialog appears, open “Users” folder. Right-click a user account and select “Set Password”.

Method 6: Bypass windows 7 login password using Backtrack:

We are going to break the windows password with a small tool called  chntpw

Step 1:    Boot Backtrack from a CD or USB.

Step 2:  Once Backtrack is booted, go to start(Lower-left corner) Backtrack >> Privilege Escalation >> PasswordAttacks >> Chntpw, opening the Chntpw terminal.


Some Linux distros (like BackTrack 5) don’t have the command chntpw added as an alias, so I had to do the following in order to get it to work properly, you might not need to do this on other linux versions as well.
But most of the time we dont need it.

alias chntpw=’/pentest/passwords/chntpw/./chntpw’

Step 3: Use the terminal to change directories to the password file.

cd /media/path/to/disk/WINDOWS/system32/config/

NOTE: The actual path can be found by opening the config folder and then opening its properties. The actual path is of the form as given below


Step 4: Then execute the chntpw utility

  chntpw -i SAM

That will create an interactive mode. Just follow the simple steps to clear the password or you can edit the password.The rest of the process is very simple and self explaining.But be sure to save it once it prompts to whether write to disk or not.

Method 7: Bypass windows 7 login password using Command prompt: Stiky Keys

This is a “trick” called : The sticky keys trick. With this you can bypass or reset an administrator windows password. I am not sure if this can work on windows 8, but it works on windows 7, windows vista and windows xp.The whole point of this “hack” is to change the name of the .exe of the sticky keys (sethc) with that of the .exe of the command prompt (cmd) . What happens is that when you press five times the Shift button ,instead of the stupid sticky keys pop up window, you will see the command prompt because
when the computer takes the order to execute sethc.exe it will execute the .exe with the name sethc.Now, there are many ways to achieve rename the two files. But in this I’ll use Sticky Key Method:

Steps to Follow:

Step 1: Boot from Windows RE and access the command prompt.

Step 2: Find the drive letter of the partition where Windows is installed. In Vista and Windows XP, it is usually C:, in Windows 7, it is D: in most cases because the first partition contains Startup Repair. To find the drive letter, type C: (or D:, respectively) and search for the Windows folder. Note that Windows PE (RE) usually resides on X:

Step 3 :Type the following command (replace “c:”with the correct drive letter if Windows is not located on C:):

Step 4 : Copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\

Step 6: This creates a copy of sethc.exe to restore later.

Step 7: Type this command to replace sethc.exe with cmd.exe:

Step 8: Copy /y c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe

Step 9: Reboot your computer and start the Windows installation where you forgot the administrator password.

Step 10: After you see the logon screen, press the SHIFT key five times.

Step 11: You should see a command prompt where you can enter the following command to reset the Windows password :

net user your_user_name new_password. If you don’t know your user name, just type net user to list the available user names.You can now log on with the new password.

I recommend that you replace sethc.exe with the copy you stored in the root folder of your system drive in step 3. For this, you have to boot up again with Windows PE or RE because you can’t replace system files while the Windows installation is online. Then you have to enter this command: copy /y c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe
