Window 10 - Password Removed but still asking for password

tzinebhtzinebh Posts: 5Member ■□□□□□□□□□
My son got his laptop locked again. Actually he got this problem several times for bad memory. It is no big deal as there are dozens of tools that can reset and blank the account password. However, this trick no longer worked on a new Dell laptop. The computer still asks for password, which was blanked previously.

Does this has anything to do with the latest Windows 10 update?

    That's a pretty bad memory. Why not make it easy like his birth year and his name? 2001Johnny - hard to forget the year you were born and your name....

    I've been in such a condition many times when my brother or any of my family members forgot their Windows password. This happens a lot if users aren't using the laptops or their PCs regularly. So, in such a condition, I recommend you to use Kali Linux to reset the Windows password.

    It's because it's way easy and the success rate is 100%. Below are the steps you need to follow:
    First, Install Kali Linux on USB.
    Then boot in Live Kali Linux Mode.
    Open the directory: /Windows/System32/config/
    Right-Click>Open Terminal
    Type: chntpw -l SAM
    List of users will appear on the screen.
    Type: chntpw -u “username” SAM e.g chntpw -u “Administartor” SAM



    Enjoy!!
