    However, when we forgot/lost the domain admin password what can we do?
    In fact, there are many methods for reset Windows password, but notice, most of these methods just can reset/recover Windows local administrator or standard user password. Such as :
    1. Login safe mode as built-in administrator without password and via Control Panel or Computer Manage to reset their lost account password.
    2. Use a password reset disk you have created for the user account password to reset the password include admin and common user password.
    3. Recover Windows password with Ophcrack, Offline NT password and other recovery tools.
    4. Use a system repair disc to restore system to a time point.
    5. Use net user in command line and Lusrmgr.msc in Run box.
    And so on.....
