Many of us get no idea on how to reset Windows 7 password.   To solve password lost trouble immediately, I have tried to give you few tips with these  helpful tips you can keep a peaceful mind when you forgot Windows 7 password.

In Windows 7, the easiest method is to creat a  “Password Reset Disk” once you create a new accout. This will allow you to reset your password should you ever forget it. You'll need a USB flash drive or a floppy disc.

Steps to Create Password Reset Disk


•    Click "Start" button and and then click "Control Pannel"

•    Click on "Create a password reset disc" on the left panel

Windows Installation disc is another tip of Windows password recovery. If you lost Windows 7 password without a password reset disk, make use of Windows 7 installation disc, and access to recovery options to bypass the unknown password. This is a very efficient method and works well, but you must have an available system restore point that was created before you had logon issues. If you don’t have Windows installation disc, use Windows 7 system repair disc instead, to restore the system to a point that you know the login password.

Tips for Migrating Applications to Windows 7

Windows 7, the successor of Windows Vista, has been out for more than a year now. Users who have been looking to upgrade to Win7 from their existing operating systems (OS) are exploring ways to do it in the right manner. Considering it, we have designed a comprehensive guide that will help users perform the migration on their own and essentially without the help of Microsoft technical support.

Steps to Migrating Application to Windows 7

Before starting with the migration procedure, you should have purchased the original Windows 7 OS along with the installation media like CD\DVD etc. If you purchased the OS online, then you would only receive the product key in your mailbox from Microsoft and not any CD etc. If you want an installation disk, then contact Microsoft product support. You might have to shell out extra money to get one.

Check Windows Updates to see if you are being offered upgrade to Win7. It is, however, recommended to perform a clean installation of Win 7 instead of upgrade so as to avoid bumping into common upgrade problems. Back up all your data to an external flash drive or other media before performing the clean installation.

Check that your hardware meets the minimum system requirements for Win 7. If you are upgrading from Win Vista, then you need not worry as it meets the hardware requirements. However, if you are upgrading from Win XP, then you must check these. The installation of Windows 7 requires 1GHz processor (32-bit/64-bit), 2GB RAM (32-bit/64-bit) or higher for heavy-duty applications, 16GB free space available on the hard drive, DirectX 9 graphics support, Windows Driver Model (WDM) 1.0 or higher, Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher, and 128MB graphics memory among others.

 If you don’t want to go through the installation or upgrade procedure, then use this method. Do not erase anything on your computer. Simply download and install Windows Easy Transfer from Microsoft’s official website. You can also choose to download Laplink’s PCmover. Both the tools will help you not only backup all your data and settings etc. stored on the hard drive but also cleanly install Win 7 on a new computer or the existing one. Laplink PCmover comes with a transfer cable that will help you move your existing data to another Windows 7 computer. Windows Easy Transfer gives you options to transfer data through transfer cable, network, and an external USB flash drive or hard drive.

Whichever tool you conclude on, download it from its official site. Save the downloaded file to desktop (for convenience) and then run it as an administrator. Follow the wizard’s instructions and complete the migration.

How to Remove Adware SpySheriff

Adware SpySheriff or you can say the red wallpaper virus is a adware program that installs itself without your knowledge. It  is an obnoxious bit of adware that pretends to be a legitimate anti-spyware program. It doesn't matter which version of Windows you're running, you are vulnerable to this particular adware program.  It pops up messages claiming your computer is infected with various (fictitious) spyware bugs. It then offers the user a program that will remove them, for a price of course. It's a scam. It can change your computer's settings, install other spyware and adware programs, display unwanted advertisements at any time during your computing experience.  The only bug on your computer is the SpySheriff adware itself. You can remove it with an actual anti-spyware/adware program that comes with Windows.

Steps to Remove Adware SpySheriff

•    Launch Windows Defender. This tool comes pre-installed with Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

•    To run Defender, type the name ("Windows Defender", no quotes) into the Start menu search bar, then hit the ENTER key. Though Windows XP does not come with the tool pre-installed like 7 and Vista, XP users can download a free version from Microsoft Support (see Resources).

 •    Click the arrow next to the "Scan" button once. A menu will appear. Select "Full Scan."

•    Click the "Scan" button once.

•    Wait for the scan to finish. When it does, click "Clean System" or "Remove All" (the wording varies by system) to remove the SpySheriff adware.

•    Restart your computer.
