Q: Password Recovery Help

I need help to recover my Admin password or to remove it. Please understand this is my pc. I talked with dell last night they want a 199.00 to reset it with the Operating System disk, and that includes a year if i have any trouble. Well I believe I will not be forgetting my password any more. This is an older dell I got in 2003. Yes it still run yet very slow?. So far I have tried to go into safe mode but it still asks for the admin password. I have tired the “Ophcrack” didn’t find a password. Tried the “Offline NT Password” nothing, I don’t think I did this on that one right. Mite retry it.. I only every used the Admin on this pc and I do have a guest acct. but it is block I mean everything, I can such the net but cannot even download Google chrome. I remember doing that because I have had to format the hard drive because of my girls getting viruses on it. This system has all my family tree research on it. And besides that it still works fine. I understand some do not want to explain the process because people do steel. I assure you this is my PC. I will give you my info and you can call dell and they will verify it. If you don’t want to post on here please email me at (email address removed) or my account email is fine to? Thanks Paula *Moderator Edit: email address removed to protect you from those who troll the internet looking for addresses to spam ~ Queen-Evie*

Preferred Solution: Password Recovery Help

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.)

System model?

I think that we need some clarification as to what type of password you reference. If Dell wanted to charge money...I don't think it's a typical user password that you refer to...and I've not heard of Dell ever charging the ridiculous sum you quoted...for recovery disks.

FWIW: There are various retailers who sell these recovery disks...for far less than you stated.

Hi  ashish,
The drive must be unlocked by the recovery password or recovery key. But you lost it and haven?t print the recovery information or save it anywhere. No any other method to help you.
I am sorry for that. I suggest you consult professional data recovery company.
Best regards,

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?

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 everyone

I am trying to recover a passsword for a MS Word file.

I have got the Passware - Office Key program. After about 4 days of the program running it said it was unable to find the password, this uses the Dictionary Attack, Xieve Attack and the Brute Force attack.

The password is just a standard 'password to open' file with just characters and a number, although i don't know the length

I have been searching the internet a lot and keep reading about password recovery/remover programs and they all say how good they are!!! I've been looking at Word Password from LastBit, but not sure if this is just going to be the same as Office Key??

Does anyone know of a program that is 'Guaranteed' to work. Even if it justs get rid of the password.

OK I play dark orbit flash game and have invested some money into that game.

My problem is that I had a laptop and now its gone but I still have the HDD. the version of windows 7 is 64 bit and the computer I have access to is only 32bit and I can't restore my settings and recover my password for the game. I also signed up for the game though syfy.com and am unable to get the password from them. I had the password stored in my firefox and in an email stored in a personal folder in windows live mail but am unable to restore either of these programs to allow me to see the password which is at least 32 char. long.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could get the password back from the hard drive as I know its stored some place but all the google I have done brings up nothing useful. I have tired the send me the password via email thing and of course since I signed up to the game though syfy com they wouldn't tell me what the password is and I am unable to change the password as I have tried in the past.

So I know I can't get the password from the firefox file key3.db as it just blanks out all the stored passwords. I have also tried to restore the mail folder from my old HDD into the new system which also failed. I don't want to give up a years worth of progress and the money I have invested into the game.

A:password recovery help

OK..I might have a way but it's a long shot since the key3db isn't the original you're using right now. I just tried it and it worked just fine with my installation.

Well..here goes:
#1) back up/move your actual key3db to a safe location
#2) Download FirePassword 3.5 Free . unpack it to your desktop (just the folder inside
#3) copy the key3.db with the password in question in the correct folder of your firefox installation usually
C:\Users\<Login name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<your profile>.default

#4) open a command prompt (CMD) and CD into the folder you unzipped onto the desktop in step2.
#5) enter in the command line

firepassword.exe >>.\pwd.txt

press Enter and after a few seconds you should find a file named pwd.txt with all the host/password combinations from your key3.db.

If you had a master password set then this way will not work...but there are programs out there for that too

Please let me know if it worked
Good luck

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.

Okay, I am trying to fix my parents computer for them, and I need to be logged on as the Administrator, in order to do what I'm trying to do. Well, the problem is, is that I have no clue what the Administrator Password is.....I have asked my parents, and since it was over a year ago that they installed XP, they also have no clue what the password is. (Dad forgot his e-mail password, not even an hour after he created it!!!)
So, how do I, either, change the password, or find out what the Administrator Password is?
Also, does a created account user, who has "computer administrator" privileges, still have all the same access and priveliges, as does the actual Administrator. (the Administrator account that shows up when you boot in safe mode)...

Welcome to TSF

Ok now as standard there is a built in Administrator account with no password set (Hopefully you haven't changed this password)

1. restart your PC pressing F8 and when the boot screen comes up select safe mode with command prompt
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open box, type net user (name of user) *, and then click OK. i.e net user placehold *
4. Type in the password you now want it reset to and confirm the password
5. then reboot

Hello Amyer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could go to each account's site, and click on their "Forgot password" or "Reset Password" link for this. They may require you to enter your user name and email address that you registered with them.

Afterwards, I would recommend to write down all of your accounts along with their log in names and passwords in say a spiral notebook, and keep it somewhere safe if you should ever need it.

Hope this helps,

Hey guys,

I have a question... Is it possible to recover a password used to log on to a site, when u choose IE NOT to remember the password??? I have the username, but don't know the password, and there's no way for me to retrieve it, so i hope i can find it somewhere on my system... I'm running W2K SP4 and IE 6...
What happened was this:
I logged on to a site, using username and password (via a form on the site)
I choose NO when IE asked if I wanted it to remember the password
This was on saturday
And I need that password, i do still have the username though

Hope that anyone can help me!!!

Ah man, I remember having a program like this before. I need to see if I can still find it somewhere if I have it. It's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't remember it exactly. I remember finding this on Google once, but it needed some specific key words for that program.

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.

Hello, and Welcome
You can enable the Hidden Administrator Account using a bootable disk. Follow the steps here. Once you have the Administrator Account enabled you can change or delete the password in Control panel under USERS. On a Windows 7 computer you can burn the iso by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. On a XP computer you can use isoburner. It's best not to reset the password. Only enable the Adminstrator account and use that to change or delete the password of  your account.
If there is more than one account on the computer, log into the account that does not need a password and type CMD in the search box. Right click > Run as Administrator then type:

net user administrator /active:yes
You can disable the Administrator account again using

net user administrator /active:no

Hi, i recently took over from a previous engineer as a broadcast and IT systems engineer, the last guy set the some bloody tricky passwords on some crucial kit and didnt pass it on to me, he has since forgotton these passwords.

I am not a total novice but i specialse in networking and broadcast systems not system admin so i need alittle help.

The data on these machines is ireplacable and is not backup so a rebuild is out of the question, they run win2k.

I have found a few tools that claim to be able to help by creating a linux boot cd or floppy, you boot this linux disk an then it is supposed togooffand sort throught the registry and find the password. Trouble is that i cant make the bootcd.

The app is called austrumi. I think i may need to compile it but am not a programer so woul know where to begin.

Can anybody help? or does anyone know of a decent bootable password recovery tool?

enough respect

A:password recovery

To create a bootable cd you need to be able to burn the image file onto the cd. Search for burncdcc. this will burn the image file correctly to the cd and make it bootable. then you need to restart your computer and configure the boot device selection to check if there is a bootable cd in the drive before it boots from the main OS. Most of the time you can enter the setup when you restart your computer by pressing f1 or f2 (it should tell you which one to press to "enter setup").

P.S The image file will probably be an ISO file

A:Password recovery

Hi, If you normally sign-on with an email and password, see if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.  https://account.live.com/password/reset When you've reset this on the Microsoft site, connect your notebook to your router/access point via a ethernet cable, start it and then leave it at the log-on screen for a few minutes before trying the new password. Regards, DP-K

I have an HP touch-smart running Windows 7 Home Premium. There are only two user accounts, my dad had the administrator account and the other one, the family would use.
The admin account has always been password protected and I always knew what it was.
I decided to remove the password on his account since he passed away a few months ago, just to make things easier in case I ever forgot that password.

So now the other day, on my personal account, an update for iTunes pops up and I try to install it, but the User Account Control says I need to put the admin password. I enter the one my dad had but it's unrecognized.
I'm completely lost as to why I'd still need to enter a password since I took it off in the first place?
Help would be greatly appreciated!
