In this guide, we will show you how to bypass a Windows 7 logon password in just two steps. And we are using a free tool to make this happen. So, here is the procedure to bypass Windows 7 logon password:
Bypass Windows 7 logon password with Kon-Boot
1. Download the Kon-Boot CD-ISO ZIP file (it’s a tiny file) and extract it to get the ISO file. Burn the ISO file to a CD/DVD to create a bootable Kon-Boot CD/DVD.
2. Before inserting the CD/DVD make sure that you have made necessary changes to boot priority setting in the BIOS so that you can boot from CD/DVD. Insert the CD/DVD into the optical drive and restart your machine. In a few seconds you will see the following screen of Kon-Boot.
Simply hit Enter and wait for a few seconds.
3. You should see the logon screen and with a password prompt. Simply press Enter key to bypass the forgot logon password. That’s it!
We have tested this tool on Windows 7 Ultimate x86, but it should work fine on XP and Vista too. Good luck!
