Unlock Windows 7 Password by Third-party Software

If you don't have a password reset disk and can't access any administrative account on your win 7 computer, then you need to create a bootable disk with Windows Password Recovery Tool Standard (Click to download). You can download it on any other accessible PC, then burn it to a CD/DVD and then boot your computer from the disk and it allows you to unlock password Windows 7 instantly.

1. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool Standard and install it on any accessible computer.
2. Burn it onto a CD/DVD.
3. Boot your locked computer from the newly burned CD/DVD.
4. Wait until the boot process is finished. When a window pops up with all your Windows accounts, select a user account and click Reset Password button to reset your lost Windows 7 password.
5. Click the Restart button to reboot the win 7 computer, now you can log into your win 7 system without any password.

It is annoying when you forgot or lost your Windows 7 password. However, with the Windows 7 password unlocker (Click to know more info) solutions above, you can unlock your forgotten password and regain access to your Windows 7 OS easily and quickly.

How to allow ping (ICMP Echo) request through Windows 7 Firewall

If you need to know how to access the Windows 7 Firewall and the basic info on the operation of the firewall the link below will cover this for you.

The below process will cover enabling ping requests through the Windows Firewall.

1. After you are in the Windows 7 Firewall you will need to select "Advance Setting" on the left hand side of the window.

2. Click on Inbound Rules

3. Next you will need to scroll down the list until you see "File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)".

Note in Windows 7, Microsoft moved the rule under the File and Printer Sharing section. So if you are trying to find the rule for Windows Vista you will want to look under Networking.

4. After you find the listing you will need to right click and select Enable Rule.

Note you will see the listing for each network profile. So you will want to do this for each one. Also at this time you do not need to enable the ICMPv6-In rule because ICMPv6 is not current used as a standard.

5. Click on the red "x" to close the Windows Firewall with Advance Security window.

You should now beable to send ping requests through the Windows 7 Firewall.

Itunes wont open

A corrupt iTunes library prevents the iTunes program from opening and prevents Apple device synchronization. According to Apple, the iTunes library must be rebuilt, which resets the library and removes the current content in the media manager. Back up your media prior to recreating the library, as the recreating process erases all content and your Apple device will synchronize with the blank, recreated library and erase the device's information.

Insert the DVD-RW disc into the computer's DVD-RW drive, and open iTunes. Click "File," "Library" and "Backup to Disc." Select the iTunes library and playlist backup and click "Next." Eject the disc after the backup completes, and close out of iTunes. Move "iTunes Music Library.xml" from your iTunes folder to the desktop. Right-click "iTunes Library" and click "Delete." Launch iTunes and click "File," "Library" and "Import Playlist." Locate and double-click the iTunes Music Library.xml file. Insert the burned disc into the DVD-RW drive and click "Restore." or
Fix iTunes if It Won't Open on Your Computer b> You've clicked and clicked and clicked some more, but iTunes just refuses to launch. A non responsive program is frustrating to any computer user, but especially if all you want to do is listen to some music or download a new album. If iTunes isn't opening, there are many possible causes for this error. None of these fixes will affect your current music collection. Though you may need to tweak or reinstall some software, your MP3s will stay right where they are.

Confirm that your Apple device is connected securely to your computer. If you are not trying to access iTunes via an Apple device, or if your device is connected correctly, continue to step two. Configure your firewall to allow iTunes to connect to the Internet. Many firewalls block software programs' ability to get online as a security precaution. This is because some spyware and malware is designed to transmit personal data from your computer. Making iTunes a trusted program within your firewall software is necessary for it to function properly. Create a new iTunes library file. An unstable or corrupted library file can cause iTunes to suddenly quit or not open at all. Recreating a library file is a lengthy process that depends heavily on the operating system you are using. See the iTunes Support page under. Reinstall iTunes on your computer. If no other troubleshooting steps are successful, then the fastest way to solve the problem is to start from scratch. Hope this helps.

My wife bought a Gateway laptop, Model MT6920, in January of 2007 running Vista Home Premium. I am trying to upgrade to Windows 7. I am trying to use its CD/DVD drive to download the Windows7 upgrade,...

Try shutting down your windows firewall. Sometimes the old windows will block the new windows installation. By disabling the firewall on vista that should allow to it to install. Becareful, there is not whole alot of drivers for windows 7 for printers just like windows vista problem.

Cannot connect Skype to Internet?

There is a version 4.1 Skype. You might need to upgrade by going to If you already have the latest upgrade and you are on a LAN you might want to configure your LAN settings to allow access for skype. Otherwise, if you have a direct internet connection and you can get on the internet with your browser, you'll need to configure your connection to allow skype. If you have McAfee or Norton or another firewall you'll have to go to the program permissions to allow Skype. If you are also using Windows Firewall you can follow these steps to allow Skype to pass through your firewall.

Go to START + CONTROL PANEL, THEN RIGHT CLICK ON NETWORK CONNECTIONS. IN THE DIALOGUE BOX CLICK ON PROPERTIES. IN THE NEXT PANEL CLICK ON "ADVANCED". There you can set your Firewall settings to except Skype, Just click on SETTINGS + ADVANCED + EXCEPTIONS. Make sure Skype is checked. This will tell your computerl to allow skype to access the internet without being blocked by your firewall.

I hope this helps, but usually when you install Skype these settings are changed by the setup program. I suspect you have a firewall you will have to set manually. If you use Zone Alarm or some other firewall you will have to search the for help on your firewall support pages.

Latency with keyboard--shift /space/backspace lagg w/ PS2 or USB

I have theory, I think you may have some virus, and it's transmitting very thing you type to another PC, causing latency and using up resources.

I would suggest trying every virus scanner possible, like Symantecs online scanner, downloading any other scanners possible, and for good measure download another firewall protection, because if you can't access your firewall properties that would probably mean it's truned it off and trying to get other viruses in there.

On startup, i get the message: Isass.exe - Access Denied

Information on lsass.exe -

Are you running a firewall (such as zonealarm)? It might be your firewall may be blocking a legit attempt by lsass.exe to run. You may have to add this to your firewall's allowed list. Of course if you are not running a firewall or if your firewall is already set to allow lsass you may have even greater problems.

You may want to post more information to get a better answer on this.
