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.)

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?

I'm completely stumped...
About 3 or 4 years ago I was with the ISP 'AOL' but moved to TalkTalk (Though I still have access to my aol account E-Mail and instant messenger) but I've forgotten my password.

I tried using their password recovery on their website but I get the error "Password Reset Unsuccessful" possibly because I did not set a secret question, I'm not sure.

Is there anyway at all around this? Would it be possible to crack my own password? >-<

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...

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 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.
