Now that your password has been removed using Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, no password is required to log on to Windows.
If you are the only user on your computer, Windows will boot all the way to the desktop on the next reboot and will skip the logon screen altogether.
If you're on a multi-user computer (as many families are), the logon screen will still appear after starting Windows but when you click on the user that had the password removed, you will not be prompted for a password and will instead enter Windows automatically.
You're Not Done Yet!
Assuming that Offline NT Password & Registry Editor worked and your password has been reset/deleted, I'm sure you're happy as can be and ready to get on with your day but now is the time to be proactive so you never have to go through this process again:
- Create a Windows password. Now that you've gained access to your computer again, configure a new password immediately.
Having a secure password is important so please don't continue to use Windows without one. Just make sure it's a password you can remember a little easier this time!
- Create a password reset disk. A password reset disk is special flash drive or floppy disk that you create in Windows that can be used to reset your password if you ever forget it again in the future.
As long as you can keep this disk or drive in a safe place, you'll never have to worry about forgetting your password, or using Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, again.
