Computer won't take my password or security question

Posted by derrickman46 on Dec 21, 2008
Started hp computer with vista one morning when it asked me for the password and when I couldn't give it the right one, it asked for the answer of the security password which was my mother's maiden name and it refused it also.Is there a way to be able to get to the password area to either, to change the password or disable it so that I can get back to my computer again..I talked to some local tech',s but they were unable to help me on vista.I was told that they could help me with XP but not Vista..I am on my wife's computer now.Thanks in advance to my computer's hiccup. Terry Comment posted on Dec 23, 2008 I never was able to get the decryted passwords,when I went to the result page it said that it was 100% recovered but nothing came up in the box in the last one to the right..The only thing there was, the word blank in each of the boxes where the passwords should have been. You could not click on them or any other place

You can make a password reset disk through a third party tool . I will show you how to create a disk after you had lost the password.
You need to login any available computer and download Windows Password Key from http://download.cnet.com/Windows-Password-Key/3000-2092_4-11166455.html and install in that PC.Burn to a blank CD or USB and then use this to reset your locked PC.
You can find the guidance how to make a password reset disk after you have lost password from here.

How to remove a bios password from hp 6720s


Why can't people put a problem in the right catagory?
Generally, you can remove the Bios backup battery or use the jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios completely.
Google "reset bios" to get an idea of how to do it, or do the same in Youtube for a video. Lots of them are out there.

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.
