Dear experts,

I removed a PC out of domain but unfortunately I don't remember the local PC account which I am kind of stuck that I can't access the PC locally.

Is there a way around it that I can access the PC? I know there is a default Administrator account and I wonder if I can use that? If not how can I log back into the PC again?

Thanks

There is an Administrator account in Windows 7, but it is not enabled "out of the box."  It must be enabled manually.  In most cases this is never done.

If you have a Windows 7 Password Reset Disc or Password Reset Drive built on the system in quesiton then you can use that to reset the password for the account for which the disc was created.

If this is also unavailable then you'll need to reset the password for one of the administrator accounts.  Unless you're expert with both hardware and software I recommend paying the $25 to have a local computer shop do this for you.

If you're an expert with both the hardware and software, and can reconfigure the BIOS to boot from CD, then the password can be reset for one of the administrator accounts.  Regrettably this falls into the hacking category and no details can be given here.  Google for "windows password reset" to see what is available.
