Unlocking your computer without the aid of a password reset disk can be done by accessing the default Administrator account from Safe Mode and unlocking your computer via console commands.

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press "F8" as the computer is booting and select "Safe Mode."
  3. Click on the "Administrator" account.
  4. Select "Start" and click "Run."

  6. Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password" and restart the computer. It will be unlocked.

Last time after locked by my pc, I searched the ways to unlock. At first I don't want to use any tools to help me so I tried safe mode, but unfortunately failed. After comparing and trying I decided to use reset software to unlock. So I chose the popular software in Google, Windows Password Killer, which is really helpful.
