Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.

If you do not have a recovery disk then in that case you will have to reinstall windows 7 right from the scratch however if you have important data then you cannot opt for windows reinstall as you will loose all the saved data.

There are many password ***** softwares available online which claim to unlock windows login password ***** they do not work and will take money for the software. I would suggest you to reinstall windows.

Let me know if you have any question.
