I forgot my Windows 7 administrator login password! Is there any way I can
recover the password? I have a lot of stuff on my laptop, so I don't want to
factory reset it. Are there any ideas on Windows 7 password recovery?

After consulting my IT friends, I get a quick response. There is a Windows 7
boot disk that will allow me to recover Windows 7 password. It is Linux
based and uses a very easy menu system. Any way, I am not a computer expert;
I can't listen to this friend for further info. I need a more easy way! Then
I wonder if isn't there a program without a boot disk? it would be much
easier for me but thanks anyways!

What a pity things is that another friends answered my question: 
Not really, most Windows password recovery requires a boot disk, unless the
main admin account is not password protected. Try accessing it by pressing
f8 during boot and entering safe mode. Once asks for login, press
ctrl-alt-del, and type in administrator. This might work. While, I have only
one administrator account - the default admin!

I search my password question words via Google, what's surprised me is that
here is one site that might help me. It is named Windows Password Recovery
Tool that will work for any Windows OS, also include Windows 7.  This tool
is a well-known professional third party application designed for
particularly Windows Password Recovery. To operate such a tool is very easy,
even though I am a newbie, I can fully understand and follow the below steps
to finish the task. Now, please follow me:
Step 1: Google search Windows Password Recovery 3.0, get results from
Step 2: Download needed Windows Password Recovery Tool Professional and
install it on an accessible pc;
Step 3: Burn a password reset disk with a blank USB Flash drive.
Step 4: Insert the burned reset disk into password lost computer, and set
the computer to boot from USB drive to recover Windows 7 password. 

Things now become easy! From this day, I think I will never take such
experience make me mad! Now, I get new password for my pc login. What's
more, I disable the Windows 7 default Administrator and create a back up
admin account!
For security purpose, disabling the built-in Administrator account on our
personal computer is very necessary since the default Administrator can do
anything to your computer, like delete crucial files, delete accounts and
reset other user password etc. So avoid this by making another account which
is not names as Administrator but with administrative privileges. 

Also, I prepare another way to help me restore forgotten Windows 7 login
password - create a password reset disk for my admin account! Dear reader,
if you are a Windows 7 OS pc owner, you can also take the following steps to
help you save much time once you lost password:
Step1. Insert a prepared USB flash drive into your computer.
Step2. Type "reset" in the Windows search box and select "Create a password
reset disk".
Step3. When the "Forgotten Password Wizard" appears, click "Next".
Step4. Select your USB flash drive and click "Next".
Step5. When the wizards finish creating the reset disk, please click "Next"
and then "Finish". 

Please pay attention to the above method again, to create a password reset
disk can only be available if we create it before lost password or need
Windows 7 password recovery.
