restore the system without knowing the password

Hello guys,
Your advice would be fully appreciated.
I need to restore the whole system on my laptop. When I go to restore options menu to select the appropriate repair, the system asks me for a password.
Unfortunately for me, I cannot recall what is the password.

Could you please advice?
Thank you,

Will the machine boot into Windows or not ? How about safe mode ? You may be able to use a third party utility to discover the password IF you can start the machine.

Hi Marv.
Cheers. I can start up the windows as usual.
Do you think I can restore the system in safe mode?
could you advice how?
Thank you

I have no experience of using them, but there are third party password recovery utilities available. Try Google.
