    Good Day,

    I hope I am posting this in the correct location, I have come across a laptop with Windows 8 on, the user forgot the password, it is a local account with no admin account, how can one go about resetting the password?

    I have tried ntpassword, but it does not support Win8.

    Any programs that one can use to boot a PC/Laptop to reset the password?

    Thanks a mil.

    I found this question and I also met the same issue, but I didn't use any software, I have a password reset disk, then easily reset the password, if you have a password reset disk, then just do it. If you don't have password reset disk, then I suggest you try iSeePassword windows password recovery program. It works but not free, only $17, If you found freeware, please don't forgot to share with us.
