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.

You could try option 5 here - User Account - Reset Password in Windows 7

Alternatively you could try a rescue disk with password reset tools, there is a very good one over at tenforums (it doesn't matter it's based on windows 10) that you could copy to a USB stick with rufus, then boot the PC from the USB stick and reset the password from the password tools on the rescue disk desktop.

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 :(

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,

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.

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.

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.
