Preferred Solution: Password recovery on a web site

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.

Hello,
I have a laptop HP 450 G3.
The disk contains 
a) Recovery partition
b) System partition
TPM is activated
The Laptop wasn't attached to Domain.
I was using this system for over 6 months without a problem and <g class="gr_ gr_25 gr-alert gr_tiny gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_disable_anim_appear ContextualSpelling multiReplace" data-gr-id="25" id="25">i</g>
was using only the <g class="gr_ gr_22 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_disable_anim_appear ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="22" id="22">bitlocker</g> password to unlock it.
My password is a 10 digit number, for example, 1234567890
After I attempted a Windows 10 Upgrade to the latest version and turned off the PC the system now asks for Recovery key, which I don't have because ? never used it before.
All my files are in this partition, including the operating system and ? cannot access it.
I have also tried to unlock the drive with the manage-bde command but failed.


I am confident that ? types the password correctly since ? was typing it for 6 months.

What can ? do to get back my data? Anyone that can help me please contact me

So, I installed Windows 10 last week. Yesterday I explored a bit and discovered Windows Edge, their new email/ outlook client. I attached my personal Gmail address to the service as well as my corporate address. My corporate account required me to create a new password that fit my company's security standards, which I did, but, after feeling like my company address was restricting how I use my personal home computer, I removed that address. Here's where I get fuzzy, I cannot, for the life of me remember, if I changed my password back to one that didn't conform to my company's security standards or if I left it alone. All I know is that once my computer locked later that night, I was unable to get back in. I've tried every permutation of every password, including that corporate password, I've ever used with no success.

I do not have a password reset disk nor do I have a system repair disk with which to reinstall Windows 10.

So, how screwed am I? Will I have to reinstall Windows 7, the last OS I have a disk for, and hope I can reupgrade to Windows 10?

P.S.
I did not attach my MSN email address (aka my Microsoft Account) to my computer, so resetting my password that way is a no go.

Hi folks

Just a quick question for you. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am looking to rerelease my very simple www site soon - mainly for family comms and kids etc and I would like to include a limited restricted area, maybe a few pages etc where I could include work related material and that I could allow certain people to access when I provided them with a password etc..

I have found free password hosting companies on the web which all look good and reasonable, but is there a more pragmatic way that I could do it myself? I have heard of the htpasswrd feature but do not know how to implement it. Would anyone be willing to explain how I could utilise this please?

I have XP, FP2002 and am willing to learn - any ideas?

John

Edit - thought I should add that I have just found out that the htpasswrd file is the file that contains the user/member/password info and that I need a script to manage this - is this correct? If so, how and where do I use the script file?

I'm not sure why this is happening (could it be my use of CCleaner?), but would like to be able to have certain sites that have usernames and pw's to open automatically...can this be done?

A:Opening web site without having to enter password?

If you clean off the cookies that save your login then you will have to log in when you go to the site. Go in CCleaner and uncheck the Cookies option in the browser you use. That should save your login cookie info.

Another way if your browser supports LastPass is to use LastPass extension. It will fill in user name and password and then you just click Login button.

I use LastPass on Chromium, Firefox and Opera. Seems to work very well.

At home I have to use Dial-Up, because where I live DSL and Cable are not available yet.

The other day I took my laptop to school, I connected to the service, but I could not access any sites, I kept getting the page error message.

So, I brought my LT home and connected to my dial-up, now I am unable to access any webpage that involves a password, I can get to the login page, but then I get the "cannot open page error".

I have reformatted, and it is still doing the same thing...

Any ideas?

And what setting do I need to change to access sites after I am connected to the wireless at school?

I did turn pop-up blocker, my firewall, cleaned my cookies and temp files, I am dumb-founded right now!

Hello all,

I help out part-time at my local library. One of our research stations (Win2k), just can't seem to remember the login/password info for a site we frequently access. We make sure the "save password" box is checked when logging in. After IE is closed and restarted, when a patron tries to log in, the username/password fields are blank, even though we saved it previously.

We have that info saved on our other research stations and the info never gets lost. It's just this one problem system. All the systems are running Win2K and have latest IE version and updates. All the settings are near identical.

The site in question is www.corptech.com. It is the login part to their secure site. It is a research database in which we allow patrons to access. That is why we keep all the login/password info saved, so patrons can go directly into the site. The problem system can never remember this info, so we always have to retype the info to login, which is a hassle.

I have double-checked the settings (autocomplete, privacy settings etc.), run adware/spyware/virus scans and uninstall/reinstalled IE. I'm still having this password problem. I downloaded Firefox and the password manager remembers the info successfully everytime. But not IE on this one system. So it seems to me something is wrong with IE. I have even tried clearing all the cache, cookies, temp files, then reattempting to login and save the info. It still isn't remembering.

About 5 hours ago, I was checking my emails on my Iphone and found an email on an account I don't use often. 
 
The email title : Registration on Turbobit.net
 
I've NEVER heard of this site before! I clicked on it and in the email it says "You have registered in File Sharing Service..."
 
Your Login: MY EMAIL
Your Password : A PASSWORD I USE FREQUENTLY! (but not the password to the email itsself) 
 
Ever since reading this email, I've been pretty freaked out and I don't know what to do. The fact that one of my few passwords has been used to sign up to a website I've never heard of/ didn't sign up for.. makes me wonder what other info and other passwords whoever signed up for this has of mine.. I searched the site name and found another person 2 months ago had the same exact problem. He received the same email with his password in the email. 
 
What steps do I need to take to protect myself? I'm scared of logging into any bank accounts on my computer to change passwords. I feel like doing so, will only give them more information! I don't know whether the password was tracked through my laptop, my desktop (Both Windows 7) or my iphone (if possible). I don't know where to start.

The cross-site scripting bug meant that logged-in users induced to visit a malicious site would disclose their email addresses and sites associated with a LastPass account, along with password reminders and a list of IP addresses used to access the site.The bug was discovered by independent security researcher Mike Cardwell, who was unable to exploit the flaw to extract passwords.LastPass - which boasts close to a million members - stores website login details in an encrypted container, safeguarded by a master password. Users log in to extract this information either directly via the website or by using a browser extension.

I've searched all over the place for this same issue with no luck. I've come IE won't save passwords, IE won't prompt to save passwords, and IE won't save passwords on certain sites, but I have been unable to find why on one computer it will prompt to save
the password for a site but it won't prompt to save on that same site on a different computer with the same browser.

So let me start by saying this, both computers are the same model, have the same OS, and same version of IE. (Dell OptiPlex 3010, Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64, and IE 11). I have verified the site in question allows passwords to be saved. It works on one computer
and not the other. Even if we try the same username. The company that runs the site has also verified this (Can't post the site name for privacy reasons).
I set this new user up on this computer and have done the following:
1. Made sure that prompting to save passwords was enabled in Internet options
2. Reset IE to defaults
3. Added to site to compatibility list
4. Added site to trusted sites
5. Restarted computer
6. Tested password prompt worked on another site
I know this is kind of vague, but if I am missing anything it would be greatly appreciated if someone could point it out.

Thanks in advance.

If you registered at a site, they should have a way to send you your password or at least a way to reset it. They should have a link that says Forgot Your Password? where you can click on it and they will sent the reset password or your actual password to your email account.

Howdy and welcome. You may want to re-read the rules page, as we do not assist with bypassing passwords.

As a result, I'm going to close this one up. Thanks for understanding,

the code: d5a11e58ebc09b7a5f7378502f08cb47


Can anyone find out what it means or recover my password some other way?

I don't think so, the password file within Windows is heavily encrypted and near impossible to decrypt (without knowing the password of cause).

I would recommend using a tool such as Help and Support on RecoverAnyPassword.com which will change the password, but at least you can login.

Hello.
 
I am new to this forum and have searched for windows 8 password recovery or editing tool. I know that I can use Hirens boot cd for Windows 7 and below. I have tried it with Windows 8 and it doesn't work obviously. Anyone know of a free tool out there that could do the trick. Thanks.

A:Password recovery

ophcrack maybe? or Windows Offline P&W Editor. I'd place my bet on those two.
