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?

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.

Hi all, I have been assigned the responsibilty of running/ maintaining the RIS server at work(Windows 2000 Advanced Server). It has not been used for awhile (employees quiting etc.), and the password is long forgotten. To make matters worse, the server has been disjoined from the network, so Active Directory wont help.

I really do not want to reformat the server, so what are my options? A co-worker mentioned a password recovery program, but what is this?

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 :(

When I go to manage bitlocker file encryption certificates it says that I have a private key which corresponds to this certificate. Will this help me unlock my HDD?

A:HDD FORGOTTEN PASSWORD

As far as I know...if you don't have the BitLocker password or recovery key, then decrypting/recovering the drive will be impossible.Bitlocker Recovery Keys: FAQsI don't have a key. What can I do?Unfortunately, if you can’t find your key, and no other administrator on the PC can find a backup copy either, you’ll need to restore the PC to factory default settings. Only choose this option as a last resort because it will delete your personal data from the PC. While it helps protect your data against unauthorized access, it also prevents you from ever accessing your data again.Depending on your Windows configuration, you might be able to restore your PC to its factory default settings directly from the Windows recovery screen.

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
