    I've forgotten my windows 7 password to the admin account and so now I'm using Offline NT & Registry Editor to try and reset it.
    I keep getting stuck on step TWO: Select PATH and registry files.

    The default is not working and I have no idea what else to try, thanks in advance :frown:

    the most fast and convenient way is to use the third-party software to reset the password, it is quite easy to use, and you do not need to worry about losing any important data, such as the Windows Password Reset in pwdspy.com
