Preferred Solution: which software is the best for password recovery?

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 LevL ,

Welcome to the Community Forums .

Microsoft do offer ways legally to help in this situation but since passwords are security information risk best that you try from the hints you used else refer to this discussion on similar query.

You're going to think I'm lying but here goes. My husband is an accountant and works with companies that are on the verge of bankruptcy. He's very good at his job and at the moment he has got a bit a problem. Oh, by the way, I took a computer networking course last year and now anything and everything that goes wrong with his computer, laptop, server, printer, camera, etc. is my personal fault. I love the guy really but I'm beginning to hate his computer problems.

The current problem is that he has a client who has just inherited her sister's business (which was doing okay). Her sister was using some kind of accountancy software from a company called DO$H and she was using a DO$H Cashbook. All of the files were backed up but they are all encrypted and when I try to get into them, they have a .db extension, or an XG extension, etc. We have contacted DO$H who have provided my husband with a new copy of DO$H which of course does nothing to access the files backed up.

Any help in recovering this password would be gratefully appreciated. I really feel for this lady who wasn't expecting her sister to die (or so quickly) nor was she expecting to inherit her business. It is now time for her to provide information to Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise so my husband is now dealing with the time constraints. Just point me in the right direction.

A:Password Recovery Software Help

I'm not sure what you expect us to do. I've never even heard of the product, and this doesn't even relate to Windows XP (the forum you posted to). Even if we knew of a way to decrypt the files, it would be against the forum policy to help you do it.

Hello,

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.

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.

When the PST file gets compacted then, white space moves back to the hard disk for further usage and it further offers a PST with reduced size. Or you can say it is overwriting of blank white space of
PST that one can perform using ?Compact Now? option of Outlook. Compacting is the technique with which we can make unusable disk space to usable so, the process is simply to welcome more data for storage.

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.

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.

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

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)...

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.

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,
Shawn

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

My brother passed away recently, and now we are attempting to locate/obtain necessary information on his PC needed to take care of his debts, insurance, and a few other issues that have to be resolved. However we do not know the password for the computer and have not located the password reset disc that it says is needed to do that. We do not think he made one. Is there any was to access windows to obtain the needed information?? Also, I was told that I have to re-install windows 7 to proceed, but how can I do that if I cannot even get into the system ???? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I unfortunately had to use my recovery CD on my Acer Travelmate 2300. Now when it boots up I get a message that "the password is unknown" (or wrong), then it shuts itself down within 10 seconds. I've never used a password to access my computer. What should I do?

I have been out of the country for several months, came back to find my housesitter has changed my password on my laptop (it prompted her and she must have misspelled etc) and I have no record of it, multiple possible combinations are not working. Help! I do not have a password recovery disk as the XP support suggests making.
Tech support through my University says yes it can be taken care of but it's complicated and therefore they are told to redirect people to XP tech support...Any thoughts?

This worked for me.
