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.
