I am in a confusion whether to put this information in my blog or not. Because it can be used for both good and bad cause.
Promise me that, you will use it for good cause.
Whenever you forgot the admin password in Windows [XP, Vista, 7] any version, you can take backup of your files by using any of the Live CD/DVDs [Ex: Ubuntu Live CD, Which I always prefer to use].
Without using the Live CD/DVD and if you wants to login to your computer there is a possibility but for limited Operating Systems by using Kon-Boot.
As per Kon-boot free version, it will support only 32-bit edition operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003/08).
The free version doesn't support 64-bit versions and Windows 7 (32bit/64bit).
