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.)

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:


- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.


Any help would be very apreciated.

A friend of mine's son says that he can't get into his PC because he forgot his XP password. I suggested that he use the Adminstrator account leave password field blank because sometimes people set up that account with a blank password, but he said that the only ID that appears is his own and he can't change it to the Admin ID.

Is there any way he can get into this system without having to wipe out the hard drive and reinstalling the OS?

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.

Any ideas that you can think of would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

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.


any help would be greatly appreciated...

Frustrated PHIL!

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 had to make a new password for my email account (every 90 days) and could not really think of anything so just chose something randomly. And now I have forgotten it .

I remember it was between 6-8 characters and contained the word 'cat' and maybe the number '20' or '11'. The password is required to contain numerical character.

Is there such a program that can generate passwords for me, so I can try each? I know there are password generating scripts on the net that just generate a password, but is there something that can generate a password from a input of words and numbers, and how long it can be?

Any help would be really great, as I would like to login into my emails. Another thing is there is no forgotten password type thing, and I have to go visit my IT department which are on holiday for another two weeks to reset the password.
