"I have a Windows 8 computer which uses a local account, and I have the impression that I set a admin password on my PC about a two weeks ago. I also create a Hint password in case I forgot my password. Now, I can't login to my admin account and I can't do anything with my PC. HINT didn't help me to recall my password. I was worried so much that I can't download and check my business document. Is there any way I can get back into her computer without reinstalling Windows? " --- Turnnly, One of our clients.

I can imagine that these guys may start to freak out if they ever forget the admin or login password to log into your PC. A locked computer may affect everything including your business, work, study design. You can't directly reinstall the system due to there are many important files saved in your computer, we all know the re-installation will erase all data on your computer.
