Yeah, you are right. I thing if you have a Microsoft account, it may be better to use it to reset password in Windows 8. My friend also said it is helpful. At first it may be not effective, or not quick. But I am wrong, no matter from above article or the discussions in "http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Operating-Systems-e-g-Windows-8-Software-Recovery/windows-8-forgot-password/td-p/2307269". So I chose this method to reset my password.
