    Last night I attempted to change my Windows 7 password and now I can't get past the password screen. Does anyone know of a good Windows 7 password recovery program. I Googled "Lost Windows Password," and of there are a lot programs available but I don't know which ones are any good. Thanks in advance.

    If you only changed it last night - or attempted to = how can it be lost? please
    Am I not correct in thinking that you refer to programs where the purpose is to recover a forgotten windows password
    I suggest, if you have not already done so that you try the old password in case the change was not implemented.

    Alternatively is there another account with admin rights for which you know the password

    Whilst I am sure that the situation is exactly as you describe, unfortunately we will not assist you with recovering the password or circumventing the requirement to enter it. Whilst I am sure this will be a disappointment to you - one of the site rules is and always has been
    I have drawn your topic to the attention of a member of the Admin/Moderating staff, for their decision.

    I hope you appreciate the situation as outlined.
