Re: Reset Password on Windows 7

welcome to the forum!


i hate to be the bearer of bad news here since this is your first post but we don't allow the discussion of password subversion methods on our forum.   there are methods to recover your password but this forum isn't the place to ask about or discuss that topic.

thanks for understanding.
