How to remove Windows password when you forgot it? I believe this has long been a great concern for many people. We all know there are many versions of Windows Operating Systems, and so far they range from Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Win8 to Windows Server 2000, 2003, 2008 etc. For sure there is tiny difference between each version of Windows password recovery or removing. Here I am willing to show you how to remove Windows Server 2008 password when you lost it.
Option1: Remove Windows Server 2008 password with default administrator.
(Note: This option is not suitable for domain controller.)
We all know Microsoft leaves a default Administrator with blank password disabled during your installation of Windows Server 2008. If you haven’t set a password for it, then you can try this way to remove Windows Server 2008 password. Please follow the below:
- Start your PC, and wait until it displays Windows Welcome Screen/Windows Login Screen.
- Press “CTRL+ALT+DEL” twice. Then in the username box enter “Administrator” and leave the password box blank.
After finishing the above steps, you now can successfully access to PC. So next you can remove the forgotten Windows Server 2008 password from “Start->Control Panel -> User Accounts”.
Option2: Make best use of Windows Password Resetter Professional.
When the default administrator cannot help you solve the problem, you can try some credible and effective password recovery tools like Windows Password Resetter Professional. This amazing tool cannot only help you remove or reset the local password on Windows Server 2008, but also the domain password. Following are the specific operations.
Step1: Download Windows Password Resetter Professional and then install, run it on an accessible computer, not the already locked one.
Step2: Insert a blank and writable CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive to the computer, and burn the Windows Password Resetter Professional ISO image file to it. When burning is finished, just take the device out.
Step3: Insert the newly burned CD/DVD/USB to the target computer, set the PC boot from CD/DVD or USB.
Step4: After the computer reboots, you then can remove Windows Server 2008 password with the pop-up interface. Just choose the user account whose password you want to remove, then simply click “Reset” button, finally reboot your PC, then the lost Windows Server 2008 password will be reset or removed successfully.
The whole operation won’t cost you even 5 minutes at most to remove the forgotten Windows Server 2008 password, why not take a try? It is really worth the attempt.
