A Windows password reset disk is a specially created floppy disk or USB flash drive that can be used to gain access to Windows if you've forgotten your password. If you've ever forgotten your Windows password before, you can imagine how valuable a password reset disk is.
Be proactive and create a password reset disk right now. It's completely free, aside from needing a floppy disk or USB drive, and it's very easy to do.
The specific steps necessary to create a password reset disk depends on which Windows operating system you're using:
- Create a Password Reset Disk in Windows 7
- Create a Password Reset Disk in Windows Vista
- Create a Password Reset Disk in Windows XP
Important: You can only create a Windows password reset disk from your computer and before you forget your password. If you've already forgotten your password and you have not yet created a password reset disk, you'll need to find another way to get back into Windows.
