If it's your windows password you've forgot, this situation is recoverable. You need to make a PASSWORD RESET DISK, which you will have to google for on the internet. You will probably require your Windows COA 25 character code from the underside of your laptop/back of PC. Instructions from MicroSoft are here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/create-password-reset-disk#1TC=windows-vista
That was for Vista but the procedure is similar for XP/7/8 I believe.
Obviously you will have to borrow another computer with similar OS OR get a friend to make you one.Once done, put in CDROM and reboot (set reboot frm CDROM in BIOS if necessary). BIOS is got by pressing F1 or F2 or other key (google it) depending on your model. Good Luck

Trying to setup my netgear wifi range extender


If you look on the back of the unit, it should have in small print, the access IP address, the admin name and admin password. If you have changed it in the past, then reset it back to the default. Typically netgear use 192.168.0.1, admin name of admin, and the password is either password or netgear1. Older units may use 1234. The only exceptions are newer extenders that ask you to put in a password when you set it up, in which can you will need to reset it to the defaults and do a new setup.

How to set a password?


  • Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.

  • 2

    When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.

  • 3

    Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.

  • 4

    Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.

  • 5

    Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.

  • 6

    Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.

    Password protected computer


    Assuming it's a Windows computer...

    Try loggin in as "administrator" - maybe you didn't put a password on it.

    Here's a page with a list of possible tools.

    Consider this - if you haven't used the computer in 4 years, why not just reinstall window on it - it's way out of date, and you probably won't miss any data on it. Just a thought

    Good luck

    Can't turn off Vista Master Password for the software security device


    Removing your master password
    • Firefox 1.5: "Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Passwords -> Remove Master Password"
    • Firefox 2.0: "Tools -> Options -> Security -> Passwords -> Uncheck "Use a master password". You will be prompted for your Master Password.
    • Thunderbird: "Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Passwords -> Remove Master Password"
    If you have lost or forgotten your Master Password or you want to disable the feature, you can reset your master password. Upon resetting, you will lose all the stored information in the Password Manager as this is a built-in security feature to prevent people from simply resetting your Master Password to gaining access to your passwords.
    For Firefox you can also look at the Troubleshooting section in Password Manager.
    • Firefox: Enter "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" in the Location Bar, press Enter, then click "Reset"
    • Thunderbird 1.5: "Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Saved Passwords -> Master Password -> Reset Password".
    • Thunderbird 2: Choose Tools – Error Console, paste the expression: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul") and press the Evaluate button. That will open a dialog asking you if you want to reset your password.
    • For Mozilla Suite: "Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Master Passwords -> Reset Password".
