    Win7 help please.

    My brother has been locked out of his pc as its not recognising his password which i know he is entering correct. win 7 64bit.

    Any ideas how to get around this?

    If you have any other administrator accounts then you can remove the password. If not and you have not done the password recovery backup option when it was working you are pretty much screwed. I think and will have to reinstall windows.

    Thats what im looking into now jimbo, internet decided to go down so sorry about lack of response. Now the ophcrack is an hour download instead of 20 mins. ARGH.

    Anyone got any idea why its happen to my brothers PC?

    When I was trying to sort out the same thing I came across something that's told me to take the cr32 battrey out of the motherboard and it will forget password worth a try

    That resets the bios password, not the windows one.

    Get the one I posted at the top if the thread, been using it for years.
