I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The company I work for has a control room where they have to enter data into excel spreadsheets with lots of links and macros, so we password protected the sheet so that they could only manipulate the cells that they needed. Myself and 2 other employees have access to the spreadsheet. Someone changed the password and the person does not remember what they changed it to. Is there any way to reset the password?

I always advise if you don't need don't put one on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Anyway I went to a buddies house to help with his brand new dell with Win 7 machine, fixed him up with all the usual tools for safty and ran the update while we went to eat.  When done he said he wanted a password, as usual I was reluctant!  He insisted so I put one one ans told him to write it down and thought I saw him doing so.  Got a call 20 minutes ago YUP he forgot and can not find the written note now I need to help him out.  Will Ophcrack or something similar do the job?
 
Frustrated PHIL!

A:Forgotten password

Instead of using Ophcrack enable the hidden Adminstrator Account using this guide. The guide links to a download but the site has a newer version. I would only enable the Administrator account, not reset his password. Once in the Administrator account you can change the password of his account.
 
If the computer is UEFI then you will need to use Rufus with the iso of the utility in order to boot or change your settings in UEFI to enable Legacy or CSM boot.

Hi,
I read the threads I found on forgotten winXP passwords. There is an administrator password on the computer too (so can't go into safe mode). We have no password recovery disk.
Is reinstalling windows the only option? I found some ideas on the internet about recovering the password file and then decoding it but they seem a bit unsafe to me.
The problem is that the information on the HD is of importance and I need to make sure nothing is lost in the process of reinstalling. What can I do?
I am thinking: Take another HD, install a clean copy of windows there, then go and delete the password file of the original HD???
Reinstall windows, delete the password file and then recuperate system to an earlier date???
Please help!
Thanks,
Carlos, Madrid, 16-9-06

well, if you think that reinstalling windows is an option, how about you try that decoding the admin password thing first, and if it screws your computer up, reformat it.

Hi All,

I've got a Dell 1525 latop running Vista Home Premium. Yesterday i was logged into my laptop and my sister in law needed to use my laptop. She inserted her USB Pen drive. When she did this, it prompted her to input my password for my account. I went to type it in and it said incorrect password. I've since have been unable to logon to my account with Vista consistently saying incorrect password. I didnt have any password changes and made sure caps lock etc was not on.

I didnt create a password disk initially and i dont have any other admin accounts. I've also booted to command prompt (via Vista Repair) and activated the builit in Admin account.

however, i do not have the option to go "Change User". A command of "net user" in command prompt does say that the Administrator account is active but i dont have it. i've tried this in safe mode too but still no "change user" option.

so if anyone can give me any ideas on what i can possibly do next (without having to reinstall) it would be great. Thanks in advance.

Steve

Hello guys and gals !!
I have a Dell Laptop and I forgot the password. My OS is Windows XP. Hopefully I am saying that correctly. I was told by a few tech guys to use Administrator as the username and leave the password field blank,which I did, that did not work. I am still getting the same error message that my password is not correct. I even tried it in Safe mode. No success there either.I am trying to keep from purchasing a password reset disk, because I am not sure which would be the best, and I am by no means computer literate when it comes to this kind of thing. My computer came from my school 2 years ago. I called them,but they won't help me. I was told to send it to them and it may take 4-6 weeks for me to get it back. I can't wait that long. Is there anything else I can do? Are those reset password disks any good?

A:Forgotten Password

Hello!
I think what they meant that you shouldn't use administrator's account in every day use and leave the password field blank. In that case you can save your every day account's files by using safe mode. But if there is an administrator's password, it is pretty hard to get the information to break that from here. It's not legal :(

Ok, well i have tried everything.

What happened when i tried different things.


1. i downloaded things to the usb, well i couldnt run them as they dont automatically start from it, so that option quickly failed.


2. i tried opening the .txt file at the end of a failed startup recovery, my error report didnt have the .txt file or anything of the sort so i couldnt open it to fix the issue nor could i use it to run CMD

3. i tried flat out factory restoring it, it asked for my password which i dont have...

4. i even tried launching in safe mode with command prompt and it again asked for my password

so, pretty much ive tried using this computer to put things on a flash drive that did not help, ive tried other methods of basically hacking and or bypassing it and those did not work either.

Hey,

I changed my password on windows 7 about a month ago then went on holidays and haven't used it for this whole month. I went to go on yesterday and found I had forgotten my password. I have tried everything I could think of then turned to programs that claimed that they could find my password, these failed. I attempted using command prompt via the Windows 7 repair disk, this only gave me error messages. I may be doing things incorrectly but, as I have read instructions over and over and tried and re-tried methods, I find this unlikely. I have also tried calling Microsoft support but they tell me that they don't deal with such problems and as my computer is custom built i can't use the normal path of solving problems such as these, calling the maker.
