If you download Hirens BootCD and burn it to disk you can boot to Mini Windows XP and there is a password removal tool. This will work on all Windows operating systems apart from Windows 8. It's simple to use and Hirens comes with a lot of good tools as well!

I think it is normal user account. Do you have the password of Administrator account...

Re: How can i recover windows password?

There is no default password.

When at the log on screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice, and type into the username box:

Administrator

And do not use a password, this MIGHT work. Give it a try.

Does this defeat the whole point of having a password basically? It means I can set an account with a password, then go into the Administrator account and remove the password and access the account, if that is true that's not really safe.

Not really. That is why for maximum security you have to set administrator password for windows.
