Posted by on .

Password protection adds another level of security to your computer. It is simple enough to lock your User Account. You can either set a new password during installation or later on in Control Panel. Though it is not required if you are the only user of your machine, password is important if multiple users are using the same machine or when trying to assign a User Account for your child with parental controls.

But one problem which is literally annoying is when you forget your password. But there are different ways to get around a logon password without even knowing it. Using a password reset disk is a very common option to bypass the lost password. But the only catch is that you should have a password reset disk in advance. If you don't have any reset disk, don't worry. We are going to fix it using these methods.

Method 1. Crack Windows 10 Password with Kon-Boot

Kon-Boot allows you to log on to Windows without even knowing the password. It just hooks into the BIOS and changes the Windows kernel contents temporarily while booting. Then, you can enter anything or leave the password blank while logging in. The original password will come again when you start your PC next time without Kon-Boot. The system will discard those changes and will act as if nothing happened.

Step 1. Simply download Kon-Boot on another system and burn the ISO file to CD or write the image file on a USB drive.

Step 2. After doing it, simply boot your locked PC to external device where ISO file or image is written.

Step 3. Set the boot device to USB or CD in BIOS and it will show up a white screen. Press any key and it will show up the process of tweaking BIOS functions. The system will boot normally after a few seconds.
