I forgot my system password Windows 7 how to recover?

I forgot my system password on windows 7 for my DELL computer and I have not created a password reset disk yet, how to recover my windows 7 password or reset a new one on my system?”

Set a strong password on your computer can prevent others from getting in your computer without permission. However, we often forgot our own password too, that cause a lot of trouble to finding the password. Sometimes you may get crazed about that if you are urgent to get data from your pc, and even if you have tried to think all of the things relate to the pc password but still get the rejection “the user name or password is incorrect”.

When you forgot windows 7 password, you can use another user account who has administrator privilege to log into system and then recover the forgotten password. Or use the password reset disk to reset a new password on your pc if you have created a password recover disk before you forgot the current password.

However, if the methods above do not work for you, you can use a password program to get with the password problem. Here I take Vodusoft Windows Password Reset software and DELL computer for example. Steps as follow:
