Sixth, the information “Do you want to restore your computer using the System Store” will appear. Just choose cancel. After selecting cancel, the computer will load. Just wait until the process is complete. More or less the waiting process ranges from 10-15 minutes.
Seventh, After waiting for the process, windows will display “Recovery Repair”. In this section select “View Problem Details (Click on the section like the sign down).
Eighth, scroll to the bottom. Then click “x:\windows\system32\en-US\ercfflps.txt. Notepad will appear.
Ninth, after the notepad appears. Click file on notepad – open – computer – local disk C – Computer – system32.

Thirteenth, then we will return to Startup Repair. In this section there are 2 options that you can choose from. Namely, “Are you sure want to exit startup repair and restart you computer” Select yes.
Fourteenth, let the Windows 7 computer restart itself until the user account login menu. In this login screen menu all you need to do is press the Shift key 5 times. That is, cmd will appear.
Fifteenth, in cmd type net use command (Enter your PC Administrator name correctly) *. For example like this, net use teknofress *. So adjust it with your PC Adminstrator name.
After that, a new password will appear. Enter your new windows 7 password. If you still feel confused or something, after entering net use, you just have to enter.
Until the information “The Command Complete Successfully” appears. If you have reached the command complete successfully stage, it means that you have succeeded in opening and resetting the old password with a new or blank one (if not given).
