Forgot your windows 7 password???

Want to change friends windows 7 password???

Then you are at right place.

We all know how to change password by starting Windows in safe and command prompt mode but now a days  people are smart they don’t put guest account or they self becomes administrator. But don’t worry You can Crack this also.

follow the steps and change window 7 password…..


Any Linux Distribution (Prefer Ubuntu ->Then you wont need ntfs-3g  package to mount ntfs filesystem) either installed in target computer or bootable pendrive

1. Start Linux on computer , If you are using bootable pendrive then read this.

2.  Start your Terminal

    if you are using Ubuntu then go to places and select drive in which Windows folder is stored.

now You have mounted drive.

type    cd /mnt   this will change Your directory to mounted drive directory.

type ls this will print all mounted drive names.

Recognize name of drive in which Windows folder is store and type cd “drive name”

In ubuntu it will be like 103546421313 very long name of partition

3.What if I’m not using Ubuntu? I’m using Redhat or any other linux distribution that doesn’t support ntfs inbuilt ??

Read this article how to mount ntfs filesystem in redhat

4. Now You are in drive where Windows folder is present

Type cd /Windows/System32

5. Basically On login menu of Windows 7 Narrator.exe , Magnifier.exe, sethc.exe processes can be start.

When you press Shift key 5 times then sethc.exe executes.

6. Now you can change password by renaming either of these *.exe which runs during login menu.

rename sethc.exe  or Magnifier.exe,  Narrator.exe or  many that runs during login menu.

lets move ahead with sethc.exe

type following in terminal

cp sethc.exe sethc_backup.exe

del sethc.exe

cp cmd.exe  sethc.exe 

here we are taking sethc.exe as backup and then replacing it with command prompt so if you are pressing shift 5 times on login menu or while running windows 7 command prompt will appear.

We have finished our work on linux now restart your computer and boot your Windows OS

7. If u have used sethc.exe previously then at login screen menu press “SHIFT ” five times and see command prompt comes.

type following command and You have changed password

net user “user name”  “your new password”

without quotes.

Now try your new password to log into system.


if u have use Magnifier.exe or Narrator.exe, Then click on easy of access menu and select magnifier or narrator click on apply see command prompt will appear.
