Tutorial for Removing Windows 7 Password without Logging in

Step 1: Install and Open UUkeys Windows Password Recovery

As we know, you can't access the locked computer anymore, so you need another Windows PC in order to complete the password removal task. We will use UUkeys Windows Password Recovery to create a password removal disk and reset the password with the disk later.

Now click the download button to save the installation file on a normal computer. Then install the program by following the default instructions. Finally launch the program at the end of installation process.

Step 2: Create Password Removal Disk with USB Drive

A password removal disk is the tool we are going to use to remove the forgotten password. It is a bootable media and you can make such a disk with a USB or DVD disc. In here, we recommend USB as our choice because it is very easy to get a USB stick. And most of the computers are not shipped with DVD drive anymore.

Open UUkeys Windows Password Recovery and choose the right USB drive name from the main screen. Then just insert the USB drive and click "Burn USB" button to start the file writing process. When it was done, just eject the burned USB drive from the PC.

Step 3: Change Boot Order in BIOS Settings (Optional)

The first bootable device is always set to Hard drive (HDD) in all computers, no matter it is Dell, HP, Lenovo or other brands. So the computer will boot from hard drive in default. If you don't change the boot order, then the password removal disk is useless.

Insert password removal disk on locked computer. To change the boot order, first power on the locked computer and press F10 (or F12/ESC) key to enter into BIOS settings. From the boot tab, use arrow key to change the boot order and set the first boot device to USB. Save the settings and reboot the computer.
