How to Reset Windows 7 Password without any Software?

There are many Windows 7 users who forget their windows login password and face many problems to recover or reset it. These Windows 7 users are always in search of method (manual or automatic) which can help them to recover lost password. So here I am writing about how to reset Windows 7 password without any software.The only resource user need to follow this method is a bootable Windows 7 Installation Disk.
1. Make CD/DVD drive as first booting device (in most of Windows PC CD/DVD drive is first booting device by default) and insert Windows 7 Installation Disk in the drive.
2. On Restarting PC you will see message "Press any key to boot from CD". So you can press any key to start booting (from installation disk) process.
3. Next you will see two options:“Install Windows” and “Repair Windows”. Click “Repair Windows”.

4. Next you will see various options to recover windows. Click on “Command Prompt” option to continue.

5. Type the following commandsin command prompt window:
copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\
copy /y c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe

6. Reboot your PC (and take out installation disk)
7. After restart (at login screen) press shift key 5 times. It will show you command prompt window.

8. At command prompt type: net user user_name new_password

For example if you want to set new password 12345 for user Patrick then you can write net user Patrick 12345.
Now you can easily login to windows 7 with new password.
If you don’t have Windows 7 password reset disk (or not able to access command prompt) then no need to worry because there are many password recovery software to reset windows password. These Windows password recovery software provide easiest way to reset windows password in few minutes only.
I hope this article is very helpful for users who want to reset windows 7 password without any software.
