We all like to protect our user accounts with a strong password which includes numbers, special characters and both upper and lower case letters. However, remembering strong passwords are next to difficult.

Thankfully, tens of tools out there to bypass or recover lost Windows logon password. Unfortunately, most of these tools are paid ones. So if you have lost your Windows password, you either need to purchase these paid tools or need to go through the tedious command prompt procedure that can be done with some bootable Linux CDs.
