What can I do if I forgot my Windows password?
I have a friend who bought a new Win7 computer, and he set it up with a new (admin) account and password, and now when he tries to log in with the password he set he gets "The password you have typed is incorrect, check spelling/caps etc..."
Since it seems to have set a different password on that account, and that is the only account on the machine, there is no way to log in, so standard password-recovery tools like Cain&Abel or Ophcrack won't work.
Are there any ways to reset a password without being logged in?
EDIT: Duplicate realized, see @Paul 's comment. Voting to close.
EDIT #2: It was a misspelled password; he was able to recreate the misspelling and log in to change the password back
