Create a password reset disk
Even if you are the only
user on a computer you should set up an Administer account and a User Account.
Both accounts should be password protected to insure that unauthorized persons
canít access your files and folders.
If you forget your
Windows password, you can use a password reset disk to create a new one.
We recommend that you create a password reset disk when you create your
password, so you don't lose access to your files and information.
TIP: To complete these steps, you'll need removable media (a USB flash drive or floppy disk).
1. Insert your removable media.
2. Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety, and then clicking User Accounts.
3. In the left pane, click Create a password reset disk, and then follow the instructions. Make sure you store the password reset disk in a safe place.

NOTE: A password reset disk can only be created for local user accounts. If your computer is on a domain, a system administrator can reset your domain password.
ALSO NOTE: This will work no matter how many times you change your password.
