Any good password-management utilities? (XP)

Q: Any good password-management utilities? (XP)

I'm drowning in a mix of scrambled uppercase, lowercase, letters, numbers and symbols here. Drowning, I tell you.

I'm looking for one of those apps that remembers them all for you, and even enters them into webpages for you when you hit a preset key combination, e.g Ctrl. X.

Now, these are passwords, mind you. The program should be encrypted and secure. And preferably of a small size, so I can install it on a thumbdrive.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

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.)

I've just acquired a new laptop running XP Professional with a 60 Gig harddrive formatted as a single partition in NTFS. Before there is any data on the drive can I use Disk Management Utilities to turn this single partition into two or three logical drives without affecting the system install? Or do I need to either:

1. Use Ghost to clone the system, then repartition the drive and then put the cloned system back on the new C: partition.

Or, 2. Purchase Partition Magic or similar software to be able to add partitions to previously partitioned drive.

Thanks.

Hello Friends!
I recently installed TuneUp Utilities 2013 on my system(Windows XP).
I noticed a new power saving feature in it which allows you to enable Economy Mode for the same.
However, i have realized that the CPU usage has gone up and is generally at approx. 10% as compared to 4% previously. But one thing to notice is that Commit Charge has decreased a lot, and does not go up more than 350M which used to be approx. 450M before.
So I wanted to know whether power consumption of a pc depends on CPU usage or Commit Charge? Or is there an issue with the software?
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

A:TuneUp Utilities 2013 power management issue

Power consumption is largely determined by CPU usage. Commit charge has nothing to do with it. It is actually very difficult to explain in a way that is both easy to understand and accurate. I won't try.

As for TuneUp Utilities 2013:
It is yet another one of those do everything utilities that appeals so much to novice users. It contains some useful functions, most of which are already a part of any modern OS, as well as some potentially dangerous ones. In particular a registry cleaner which generally cause more problems than they solve.

I wouldn't use it if it was free, let alone for the asking price.

Hi guys,

Since removing the shipped HP HDD from my PC and replacing it with a 3rd party fresh one, I am concerned about how I will now go about recovering my PC.

When Windows had problems in the past, I could simply press F10 on startup and there was a diagnostic section which allowed me to reformat in an either destructive or non-destructive way.

What happens if my computer doesn't start up nowadays? As in, the Windows Loading logo screen appears and then the monitor goes black and stays black..

Is there any software or method to allow me to have some sort of management over this?

Sorry if I have not been able to correctly ask my question.. Kinda hard.

Thanks guys.

Hi TSG... Could you please help with a small problem I am having with an Advent T9004 which has a 'boot reset loop'
I've tried the normal repair tools (<reference to illegal software removed> e.t.c.) but can not repair the system so was going to do a Factory default reset using the EISA recovery partition but therein lies the problem... I have not been given a password and there were no recovery discs or documents available.
Is there a way to reset the password or is there a standard password for EISA partitions on Advent systems. PC World are lazy to get back to me and I don't know where else to look. I've been servicing for a few years now and this is the first time working with Eisa partitions.

I've been thinking about the use of password managers lately and wondering whether it's worth exploring an alternative.

The problem, as I see it, is with having one master password - I know this is supposed to be kept securely by the developers, but I've heard of several security scares in the last few years. Of course, this is much more secure than simply using the same password everywhere, but if hackers were able to gain access to people's master passwords, surely it would be a goldmine for them and disatrous for everyone else! Even if the master passwords are well protected, this is possible, right?

Back to the alternative... what do you think about the possibility of devising a new unique password each time, writing it down, and physically guarding it. However, this would just be for the accounts you deem most vital, so a password manager could still be used for less important accounts. I know it sounds inconvenient, and I suppose it would only work if you're not prone to losing things, but could be a viable option?

Issue:
When launching Exclaimer Control Panel v.4.2, it may prompt you for authentication if password is enabled. For any reason if you need to take out that password protected feature, follow the instruction below:
1) Launch &#8220;exclaimer4.xml&#8221; with notepad. The default location of this file is in &#8220;c:\Program Files\eXclaimer&#8221;
2) You may want to make a copy of this file first
3) Search for &#8220;<Password>&#8221;. It&#8217;s located in the last line of the file
4) Delete everything between and including &#8220;<Password>&#8221; to the next &#8220;</Password>&#8221; on the last line of this file. (Example of what you need to delete: <Password>j;lke9u0z9873jdsafj(*&7q89wakdjhf</Password> )
(Be sure to delete both <> with password inside)
5) Save it and exit.
6) That&#8217;s all. Try to launch Exclaimer Control Panel and it won&#8217;t prompt you for password if you do all of the above steps correctly.

Im looking to build my own rig soon and i understand that it is almost essential to have good cable management in order for you hardware to be properly displayed through the side panel. So what are good tips and tools that i should look into getting to get a good solid look?

For example: Ties, clips, ect...
 

A:What are good tools for cable management?

2 words for you...Cable Ties.

These will be your best friend. You need to really keep cable's to the side out of the way of airflow.

There isn't really any fast rules as to how to do that its just your own view. The best way would be to route the cable's behind the motherboard tray to keep them out of view.
My PC was a mess as you may see in my TechSpot gallery pictures so Ive tidied them up (posting picture soon)
Basically all i did was Cable tie the PSU cable together and put them behind the motherboard tray out the way. Then for the IDE cable's I put my drive in backwards and routed the IDE cable around the back of the hard drive case stand out the way.

Also when your parts come and you build in the end don't expect to use the cables that come with the stuff. In most systems Ive done Ive bought new cables that are much much shorter so as not to have anything dangling around.

Just play and see what's best. The advice I wish I had taken on board would be to get a modular Power supply. I have allot of cables I have not used and really look a mess. With modular you only need to plug in what you need. Its all good.

Good luck.

Well, I'm basically looking for a linux live distro that is....well recommended for swapping partitions on hard drives ect...
My situation is, I have a hard drive that could be failing, but I have so much data on it, I'm afraid to do a windows "repair" chkdsk, cause that usually screws things up more, and when I'm managing it regularly in windows, it has some corrupt files.

So I was thinking I would copy the entire partition over (safely) if possible to a blank drive, then reformat the possibly bad one, or at least do a scan for errors after copying.

So this may be a part 2 post.

Either a linux live recommended distro for partitioning drives, or a suggestion on how to save this data....without losing it....

I know people always say, by the time you decide to get a backup drive, it'll be to late. Well I don't exactly have alot of money, and I have many gigs to backup so online isnt an option. The bets I can do is wait for a drive to start failing, and save the data before it completely dies.

Hi

What is the 'best practice' for managing one's passwords?

A) HOW SHOULD I STORE PASSWORDS?
Problems:
1. I need to manage a fairly large number (i.e. 50+). So there are too many to remember.

2. Obviously I don't want to keep them inside a simple unencrypted text file, in case my data gets hacked.

3. If I download dedicated password application how can I trust it?(!)

4. I don't trust 'The Cloud' nor any of the big data owners: google, apple, amazon, drop-box et al.

5. I don't want to be tied to anything that I cant migrate with me onto my next hardware, when I come to upgrade my PC(s).

Either way I dont really want to pay anything (certainly not more than a few dollars) for this security.

I was thinking of using something like TrueCrypt to create a virtual drive (that I encrypt robustly) and then storing my passwords in an ordinary text file.
That way I would have a single master password (for TrueCrypt) which would give access to all the other passwords.
[Aside: Obviously if I forget my master password I'm screwed!]
B) PASSWORD CONVENTIONS
As you know many sites require passwords that meet specific rules e.g.
- At least one upper AND one lower case letter
- At least one digit
- No tripplets (three characters the same next to each other) (iTunes!)
- No more than 16 characters

Double-click problems
Some sites allow extended ASCII characters (e.g. ?$%^&*) , which give VASTLY better security of course. BUT they are a mighty pain to use regularly because if you... Read more

As with a lot of people, I have many tens of web accounts of various sorts, including one on this site. While I do not have the exact same user name and password for all of them, there is a fair degree of repetition. In addition, I do not change the passwords all too often.

I came across WIseKey / WIseForm solution here. While not free, it is well within what I'd pay to sleep better. I have two questions:

What with all the more frequent personal information online break ins am I worth using one of the PASSWORD KEEPERS as if I'm constantly going to have to change them I'm likely to forget them all.
I'm assuming a Password Keeper is more secure.

I'm looking at 2 of them 1] KEEPASS and 2] Dashlane PASSWORD MANAGER
1] Is a bit complex to set up.
2] is easier to set up and I like that everything is kept encrypted until it appears back on your machine.

I don't have either fully set up yet as I would like any input on them you might have before I do.

Your comments much appreciated.

A:Are PASSWORD KEEPERS any good?

I use Keepass. It's a piece of cake. I actually keep mine on Dropbox, so that I have a copy in the cloud and on my PC. So, my dropbox would have to get hacked, and then my KeePass would have to get hacked to get my passwords. That's a safe enough risk to me.

I log into another computer in the same area, log in with the username and password, logs in without issue. Go back to the offender and log in with an admin domain account, no issue. So, now, I've blown out everything related to this user account, removed and readded it to the valid user list, nuked and deleted the user profile by deleting from profile list, physically deleting the profile, and making sure that the profile wasn't in the registry. Still no dice. I even tried removing and readding to the domain just to say I did it. Any thoughts?

A:Domain PC won't accept known good username and password

Went in a reset domain password anyway...seems to have worked.
