how to bypass windows 7 password?
Long story short my parents recently got divorced. Mom got the PC. Her ex moved to Australia, blocked all contact with us. He had admin password on the PC and now I cannot install anything. He has the only admin account.
I need to get admin rights or somehow bypass the password. I tried using a program called spower, which your meant to burn to a USB and then boot the computer off the USB and reset the password. However when I press f12 to boot off another device and press enter on USB nothing happens and it just boots normally.
I am running windows 7 64bit
Does anybody know any other way to bypass the password? Any other program that is perhaps easier to use? Or how to exactly boot off the USB.
Any help is appreciated.

I’m sure there are smaller downloads that can remove a Windows password, but having a copy of one of these emergency boot discs should be a requirement for everybody.
There are several free utility CDs that incorporate an option to remove a Windows password. These include Hiren’s Boot CD (HBCD), Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) and Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBCD4WIN).
This procedure uses Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD).
You need to use a working computer to download the .ISO image, and burn it to CD. You then use the CD to boot the computer that’s blocking you with a password.
This link takes you to a download for Ultimate Boot CD 5.2.2 Scroll down to Free System tools, and download the .ISO image, then burn it to CD.
If you don't have burning software installed on the working computer, download and install Ashampoo Burning Studio 6. It's free, and I recommend it...I use it myself:
Start up Ashampoo and select Create/Burn Disc Images...then select Burn a CD/DVD/Blu-ray Disc from a Disc Image.
Burn the CD or DVD, and use it to boot your problem computer. You may need to enter your BIOS (Setup), and change the boot sequence to boot from CD first, but this isn't always necessary.
Once you’ve booted your problem computer with the UBCD, scroll down and click on “Parted Magic”, then scroll down again and click on “Alternate graphical server”. Allow it to load up, then click on the circular Parted Magic symbol in the bottom left-hand-corner of your screen.
Select “System Tools”, then click on “PCLoginNow”. Click the Next button, then highlight the system you wish to log in to. If you have multiple operating systems installed they will all be listed, so be careful to select the correct one.
Click the Next button. Now highlight the user. If you have multiple accounts installed they will all be listed, so be careful to select the correct one.
Place a tick in the box labelled “password is empty”. Click the Next button, and if asked “Reset successfully! Do you want to reset another USER?”, click the No button.
Once again, click on the circular Parted Magic symbol in the bottom left-hand-corner of your screen and select “Logout”, then select “Reboot the computer” and click the OK button.
CHKDSK will be activated. Allow this to complete and if all is well, you’ll continue to boot to your desktop.
Hope this helps.

If you have an available administrator account on your system, you can get your password back easily. Logon Win 7 system with the admin account, and then you can come to the Control Panel and change or delete other accounts' passwords. Just three steps:
Step 1: Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user accounts
Step 2: Choose the locked administrator account
Step 3: Click Change the password or Remove the password. And then you can change or remove the lost or forgotten password
If you do not have another available administrator account, you could try some third party software. There is plenty of third party software for password recovery on Windows 7 online. all of them are designed to create a Windows password recovery disk. With the disk you can recover your lost Windows 7 password. I highly recommend Windows Password Key and use it as an example. What you need to do is just three steps (you need another computer to create the disk):
Step 1: Download Windows Password Key from: http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/windows-passwor...
Step 2: Burn a Windows password recovery disk with the software
Step 3: Recover the Windows 7 password with the disk
I think the most efficient is using third party windows password recovery software. Have a try.

Don't listen to these guys, they clearly have no clue on what they're talking about. I am a developer at Microsoft so I know a thing or two about computers. The only way to reset your windows password 100% safe is to use a software called Reset Password Pro.
The software allows you to create a boot-disk, that can be made on a CD/DVD or USB stick. The boot-disk can then be inserted into any locked machine, and it's a simple case of pressing reset. Here is their official site: http://www.resetwindowspass.com
