    I have checked out this software and it worked great! Now it claims that it is able to reset forgotten Microsoft account password in Windows 8. This is the unique feature I’ve never seen. I’ll give it a try!

    Stephen, we also recommend OPHCrack Live CD, but we haven’t tested it on Windows 8, only Windows 7 – so if the software does not work there are some alternatives

    The fastest way would be to simply re-install the system, but you will obviously lose your system settings
