What happens when you use your Windows installation disks to install Windows? What operating system are you trying to load?

So, I installed Windows 10 last week. Yesterday I explored a bit and discovered Windows Edge, their new email/ outlook client. I attached my personal Gmail address to the service as well as my corporate address. My corporate account required me to create a new password that fit my company's security standards, which I did, but, after feeling like my company address was restricting how I use my personal home computer, I removed that address. Here's where I get fuzzy, I cannot, for the life of me remember, if I changed my password back to one that didn't conform to my company's security standards or if I left it alone. All I know is that once my computer locked later that night, I was unable to get back in. I've tried every permutation of every password, including that corporate password, I've ever used with no success.

I do not have a password reset disk nor do I have a system repair disk with which to reinstall Windows 10.

So, how screwed am I? Will I have to reinstall Windows 7, the last OS I have a disk for, and hope I can reupgrade to Windows 10?

P.S.
I did not attach my MSN email address (aka my Microsoft Account) to my computer, so resetting my password that way is a no go.

Hi, i recently took over from a previous engineer as a broadcast and IT systems engineer, the last guy set the some bloody tricky passwords on some crucial kit and didnt pass it on to me, he has since forgotton these passwords.

I am not a total novice but i specialse in networking and broadcast systems not system admin so i need alittle help.

The data on these machines is ireplacable and is not backup so a rebuild is out of the question, they run win2k.

I have found a few tools that claim to be able to help by creating a linux boot cd or floppy, you boot this linux disk an then it is supposed togooffand sort throught the registry and find the password. Trouble is that i cant make the bootcd.

The app is called austrumi. I think i may need to compile it but am not a programer so woul know where to begin.

Can anybody help? or does anyone know of a decent bootable password recovery tool?

enough respect
stretch

A:password recovery

To create a bootable cd you need to be able to burn the image file onto the cd. Search for burncdcc. this will burn the image file correctly to the cd and make it bootable. then you need to restart your computer and configure the boot device selection to check if there is a bootable cd in the drive before it boots from the main OS. Most of the time you can enter the setup when you restart your computer by pressing f1 or f2 (it should tell you which one to press to "enter setup").

P.S The image file will probably be an ISO file

I have been out of the country for several months, came back to find my housesitter has changed my password on my laptop (it prompted her and she must have misspelled etc) and I have no record of it, multiple possible combinations are not working. Help! I do not have a password recovery disk as the XP support suggests making.
Tech support through my University says yes it can be taken care of but it's complicated and therefore they are told to redirect people to XP tech support...Any thoughts?

Hi, If you normally sign-on with an email and password, see if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.  https://account.live.com/password/reset When you've reset this on the Microsoft site, connect your notebook to your router/access point via a ethernet cable, start it and then leave it at the log-on screen for a few minutes before trying the new password. Regards, DP-K

Hi everyone

I am trying to recover a passsword for a MS Word file.

I have got the Passware - Office Key program. After about 4 days of the program running it said it was unable to find the password, this uses the Dictionary Attack, Xieve Attack and the Brute Force attack.

The password is just a standard 'password to open' file with just characters and a number, although i don't know the length

I have been searching the internet a lot and keep reading about password recovery/remover programs and they all say how good they are!!! I've been looking at Word Password from LastBit, but not sure if this is just going to be the same as Office Key??

Does anyone know of a program that is 'Guaranteed' to work. Even if it justs get rid of the password.

Cheers

I don't think so, the password file within Windows is heavily encrypted and near impossible to decrypt (without knowing the password of cause).

I would recommend using a tool such as Help and Support on RecoverAnyPassword.com which will change the password, but at least you can login.

Hello again,

a couple days ago my wife found a flashdrive with a whole bunch of vacation pictures from our early days. The only problem is, theyre in a compressed folder to which apparently there is a password in order to unzip them all. I know there are programs which can recover lost passwords, but I was wondering if there was an option that didnt require money in order to get the full effect of the program.

If its not possible or reasonable that's fine, they will be casualties like many slides my parents have, but it'd be nice.

Hello Amyer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could go to each account's site, and click on their "Forgot password" or "Reset Password" link for this. They may require you to enter your user name and email address that you registered with them.

Afterwards, I would recommend to write down all of your accounts along with their log in names and passwords in say a spiral notebook, and keep it somewhere safe if you should ever need it.

Hope this helps,

I have the username, but don't know the password, and there's no way for me to retrieve it, so i hope i can find it somewhere on my system... I'm running W2K SP4 and IE 6...
What happened was this:
I logged on to a site, using username and password (via a form on the site)
I choose NO when IE asked if I wanted it to remember the password
This was on saturday
And I need that password, i do still have the username though

Ah man, I remember having a program like this before. I need to see if I can still find it somewhere if I have it. It's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't remember it exactly. I remember finding this on Google once, but it needed some specific key words for that program.

If you registered at a site, they should have a way to send you your password or at least a way to reset it. They should have a link that says Forgot Your Password? where you can click on it and they will sent the reset password or your actual password to your email account.

Okay, I am trying to fix my parents computer for them, and I need to be logged on as the Administrator, in order to do what I'm trying to do. Well, the problem is, is that I have no clue what the Administrator Password is.....I have asked my parents, and since it was over a year ago that they installed XP, they also have no clue what the password is. (Dad forgot his e-mail password, not even an hour after he created it!!!)
So, how do I, either, change the password, or find out what the Administrator Password is?
Also, does a created account user, who has "computer administrator" privileges, still have all the same access and priveliges, as does the actual Administrator. (the Administrator account that shows up when you boot in safe mode)...

I am not trying to break into anyones protected files, or even ones that I forgot a password to. I am doing this entirely just to satisfy my curiosity.


Ok, so here is the poop.

I got bored the other night, and decided to try and learn how to break into password protected zip files. I looked around online, found some trials and played around. I found one that seems pretty good (KRyLack).

My question is, does anyone know of a similar program that is multi-threaded?

Waiting a week while it tries to brute force into file is horrible with my three remaining cores sitting there doing nothing.

So far I have tried to go into safe mode but it still asks for the admin password. I have tired the “Ophcrack” didn’t find a password.

I only every used the Admin on this pc and I do have a guest acct. but it is block I mean everything, I can such the net but cannot even download Google chrome.

I think that we need some clarification as to what type of password you reference. If Dell wanted to charge money...I don't think it's a typical user password that you refer to...and I've not heard of Dell ever charging the ridiculous sum you quoted...for recovery disks.

FWIW: There are various retailers who sell these recovery disks...for far less than you stated.

Hello, and Welcome
 
You can enable the Hidden Administrator Account using a bootable disk. Follow the steps here. Once you have the Administrator Account enabled you can change or delete the password in Control panel under USERS. On a Windows 7 computer you can burn the iso by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. On a XP computer you can use isoburner. It's best not to reset the password. Only enable the Adminstrator account and use that to change or delete the password of  your account.
 
If there is more than one account on the computer, log into the account that does not need a password and type CMD in the search box. Right click > Run as Administrator then type:

net user administrator /active:yes
You can disable the Administrator account again using

net user administrator /active:no

OK I play dark orbit flash game and have invested some money into that game.

My problem is that I had a laptop and now its gone but I still have the HDD. the version of windows 7 is 64 bit and the computer I have access to is only 32bit and I can't restore my settings and recover my password for the game. I also signed up for the game though syfy.com and am unable to get the password from them. I had the password stored in my firefox and in an email stored in a personal folder in windows live mail but am unable to restore either of these programs to allow me to see the password which is at least 32 char. long.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could get the password back from the hard drive as I know its stored some place but all the google I have done brings up nothing useful. I have tired the send me the password via email thing and of course since I signed up to the game though syfy com they wouldn't tell me what the password is and I am unable to change the password as I have tried in the past.

So I know I can't get the password from the firefox file key3.db as it just blanks out all the stored passwords. I have also tried to restore the mail folder from my old HDD into the new system which also failed. I don't want to give up a years worth of progress and the money I have invested into the game.

A:password recovery help

OK..I might have a way but it's a long shot since the key3db isn't the original you're using right now. I just tried it and it worked just fine with my installation.

Well..here goes:
#1) back up/move your actual key3db to a safe location
#2) Download FirePassword 3.5 Free . unpack it to your desktop (just the folder inside
#3) copy the key3.db with the password in question in the correct folder of your firefox installation usually
C:\Users\<Login name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<your profile>.default

#4) open a command prompt (CMD) and CD into the folder you unzipped onto the desktop in step2.
#5) enter in the command line

firepassword.exe >>.\pwd.txt

press Enter and after a few seconds you should find a file named pwd.txt with all the host/password combinations from your key3.db.

If you had a master password set then this way will not work...but there are programs out there for that too

Please let me know if it worked
Good luck

Hi

I have a windows 7 laptop with admin user account. This account is password protected and i completely forgot my password. Fortunately since i have fingerprint authentication i could login using my finger. However im not able to change my password or remove it completely since it requires the old password.

Can anyone suggest how to reset or remove my password. I need to access my pc remotely so i cant use finger print reader and must require password

Thanks

My hd crashed a couple weeks ago, not allowing me to start up windows, and my disc drive was out. The WINDOWS/SETUP was missing or something like that. So just now did I have the chance to hook up another disc drive to it. I'm going into the regular Windows XP Setup, then into Recovery Console. It asks me what installation, and lists "1: C:\WINDOWS". Thats the only installation detected, so I push 1. ]

My problem is this: it prompts me: "TYPE THE ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD". I never set an administrator password I believe. Pushing enter just exits the recovery console. I tried typing administrator and windows, but to no success.

Does anyone know what to do in this situation?

I would have just reformatted my hard drive, but there is some stuff on there that I will not be able to get again and I would rather have.

Thanks.

A:Recovery Console... Password???

I would just do a general repair on your Windows installation. You would go about this with your installation disk as if you were going to install (or reinstall) Windows. When setup sees that you have an exisiting Windows installation, it will give you the option of repairing it. Choose that, and it will repair without reformatting and losing your data. Be careful though, do not delete the existing Windows or the partition. If you are doing this and have any doubts, ask before proceeding.

This is so frustrating and embarrasing! Some fifteen years ago, while working in WordPerfect 4.1, I saved few very important files and locked them with a password. Ten days ago I found those 3.5" disks and realized that I don't remember the password any more. I tried so many software companies, but they were all saying that they could crack only WordPerfect ver. 5.0 and up. How frustrating! Any hint from anybody? Your help will be highly appriciated!

Does anyone know if UUKeys is safe?  I locked my kids out of their computer by changing the password, then spent the next 3 weeks out of town in hospital with my wife who has cancer.  By the time I returned, I couldn't remember the password.  I tried making a bootable flashdisk using the Microsoft program that makes a bootable USB drive with WPE.
MS must've patched the flaw in W8 that allowed people to use the advanced tools to make specific changes to get in (in this case, it was suggested that devman.exe be replaced with cmd.exe so that you could then execute it from advanced tools and then change the password, but I could not get my laptop to do this as it only showed the one user account).
I just found a link http://www.uukeys.com/reset-windows-10-password.html#part2 and wondered if this would be a safe choice.  If not, does anyone else have a suggestion?

VirusTotal had two hits on the installation program itself and none on the link above.

You're going to think I'm lying but here goes. My husband is an accountant and works with companies that are on the verge of bankruptcy. He's very good at his job and at the moment he has got a bit a problem. Oh, by the way, I took a computer networking course last year and now anything and everything that goes wrong with his computer, laptop, server, printer, camera, etc. is my personal fault. I love the guy really but I'm beginning to hate his computer problems.

The current problem is that he has a client who has just inherited her sister's business (which was doing okay). Her sister was using some kind of accountancy software from a company called DO$H and she was using a DO$H Cashbook. All of the files were backed up but they are all encrypted and when I try to get into them, they have a .db extension, or an XG extension, etc. We have contacted DO$H who have provided my husband with a new copy of DO$H which of course does nothing to access the files backed up.

Any help in recovering this password would be gratefully appreciated. I really feel for this lady who wasn't expecting her sister to die (or so quickly) nor was she expecting to inherit her business. It is now time for her to provide information to Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise so my husband is now dealing with the time constraints. Just point me in the right direction.

Basically I have a drive encrypted with TrueCrypt since last week. I had the TC password written down on a sheet of paper, but now I lost that sheet of paper. I can remember 6 to 8 characters out of the 9. So are there any password recovery programs/password cracker programs that i can enter in the parts of the pass that i know are in it and it will find the rest? I'm asking to do it this way because without knowing most of the characters in the password i'm pretty sure it would be impossible to crack. I don't want to lose my stored data or have to delete a partition encrypted with TrueCrypt. Lastly no i did not make a TrueCrypt boot cd to recover your password if you forget it, as it asks you to when your making a TC container.

P.S. a few of the characters i remember might not be in the right place but i know that they're part of the password.

A:Help. Password recovery program.

Found a solution to this problem. Had to delete the logical partition created by truecrypt. I no longer have the files stored in the original tc vault but least now i can use the space it was taking up to start a new tc vault, after i do a clean reinstall.

There is a partitioned recovery drive on the computer that I am wondering if I can access to reformat the hardrive so I can get back on my computer. On my old desktop the restore option would come up on the BIOS screen but now I don't know if I have to be logged onto access it because I can't seem to find an option for it. Please help me this is my new laptop and now I can't even use it.

A:Password Lost/ Recovery help

Dell doesn't display the key sequence to access the recovery partition on boot. Unless Dell changed it, it will be CTRL-F11. You need to start repeatedly punching this in as soon as the BIOS checks starts up.

Remember, this reformats the hard drive and you will loose all your data.

Hi, I downloaded and burned the cd image of the login recovery boot disk found here:
www.loginrecovery.com

I checked a few other sites that linked to that and they said that it was the safest solution for recovering an administrator password but ever since I ran it, my cpu usage has risen from ~10%-15% to 60%-90% when the computer is completely idle. I check Task Manager and have found nothing that takes up any CPU. I even reinstalled Windows and nothing changed.

Also, when I tried running the Recovery boot program that came installed on my computer, it froze. I've tried contacting the site's "support" but they won't reply. I'm not sure if this will help, but when I use the loginrecovery program, I always get some error. Either "Can't load strings..." or "Cannot find A:\AUTOEXEC.BAT". Both of those errors have something to do with the programs the boot cd runs and not my computer, as I do not even have an A: drive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've searched for days and have found nothing and am asking here as a last resort.

A:90% CPU usage after using password recovery

Hi relickoodge

The high-cpu usage is likely due to the program that runs as a service - it looks like the main recovery-engine of the package. It's supposed to calm down after a few passes through the system.

If you can uninstall the beast, I'd recommend that. Try in Safe Mode. I'm fairly skeptical about after-the-fact password recovery programs -- they can be subverted for hacking tools. As with any free download, there's also the risk that there's an unwanted guest aboard. Run some malware scans from both Safe and Normal mode - on as "thorough" or "high" settings as your scanners allow. Should a serious infection (or more) be found, consider trying the 5-Step Security Checklist in the HiJackThis/Security forum here at Tech Support Forums --- http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=15968

Can I assume you did the in-place reinstall from within Windows & used the same Windows folder install location as your original install? --- Or? (Did you use a "Recovery/Restore Disk" or a genuine Windows installation disk? Did it include SP2?) --- since you reinstalled, another source of heavy cpu usage is going to be Automatic Updates having to download a lot of Security Patches since SP2 was released.

If you have recent backups (that scan free of pests), and don't want to spend hours cleaning up malware, you of course have the option to "nuke and pave" [Write-protected Bios flash/zero-write hard drive(s)/let XP set... Read more

My husband was recently given a laptop by a vendor whom he doesn't see often. As far as I know it works, however, it has a password which I cannot crack even using the password hint. There is no disc drive so I loaded basically a hacker program on a flash drive to get the password. I have followed all of the instructions but the laptop won't load past "Press F2 to enter setup" with the flash drive in. I then have to force it to shut off, holding down the power button. I don't know what else to do at this point since it did not come with the distcs. If I can't figure it out I will have to wait until my husband does another job with the guy.

I am helping a friend that has a Toshiba Laptop that he cannot get into.  He has forgotten the password and I can't seem to find a way to come up with a way to help.
 
I do have a password recovery tool that has helped me gain access to Windows 10 and Windows 7 programs.  I can't seem to get the disk to boot into cd I have.
 
The UEFI method of booting to Windows 8 won't let me even though I have gone into the BIOS and reset the disk to run from the CD.  Does anyone know how I can get my CD to boot.  I have seen a technician do it but I am not sure how.
 
Thanks for any and all assistance.

A:Password Recovery for Windows 8.1? Help.

Make sure SecureBoot is disabled in UEFI. You may need to enable a setting called Legacy or CSM boot and disable any setting called Quickboot or Fastboot.
 
On a Toshiba you should be able to access the boot menu by tapping F12 at boot. You may need to enable the F12 Boot setting in UEFI.

Hi there,
I am trying to fix my mother's computer as the computer displays THIS when I boot:
Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
I have tried using the microsoft windows help recovering the systems from the recovery console (link How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting) and got to step three but when i tried to do copy c:\windows\tmp\system c:\windows\system32\config\system it tells me that the file could not be copied, and then from then on, i cannot even access the md tmp anymore, it keeps telling me that access is denied. I am at my wit's end here, considering that I have gotten so close to the end of the process only to have it blow up on me like that, even more difficult to fix than the previous problem. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!

A:RECOVERY CONSOLE ASKING FOR PASSWORD WHEN NONE IS SET!!!

Did you heed the warning about an OEM installation. The only way MSs fix works is with a full purchased installation on XP. If you didn't pay attention to this and it's OEM, then you can't reenter the recovery console and a reformat and clean installation will have to be done unless someone knows a way around this.
