Re: macbook os x
This is going to be painful but you can not remove the password from the file vault. You can remove the system password but that will make anything inside the file vault inaccessible.
If you know the system's master password you can still get into the vault.
If you don't know it the only other thing you can do is try a brute force attack on the password. If a strong password was chosen this could take an extremely long time. The files you need to do this are here (VFCrack, but I do not have a mac so their use is beyond my scope of expertise. Hopefully someone here will be able to tell you how to compile and run them)

erecovery password Acer has a software named eRecovery. This software dedicated to their customers in order to get Windows OS recovery process a lot more easier and faster even a kid able to do it.
Acer created a hidden partition labeled PQSERVICE
You wouldn't able to see this partition in Windows explorer. If you want to see this partition existance, right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management
PQSERVICE partition contain an image of Windows OS (XP/Vista/Seven) and this partition will be load to recover anytime when your Windows OS crashed, unstable, or infected by virus.
By pressing ALT+F10 before entering Windows boot process, you will access Acer eRecovery menu and asked the location where the backup will restore (ussually C: Drive). After few simple clicks (as easy as click Next) you will have your Windows back as 'factory default' state (State when you bought your Acer machine)
But how if there are password required for eRecovery? The windows is crashed and unfortunately... you don't know the password?
With windows 7 the password recovery is pretty complex (unless you created a backup of your password on a flash drive, etc.). I have a bootable program that can reset the password on win 7, but it's a .iso file that I downloaded. I am not aware of a way to do this remotely...it would be my guess that unless you did a password recovery in Win 7 that you will need to find someone in your area to take a look at it. It's pretty straightforward with the software. If you happen to be in MO let me know.
There is an easy way to recover Windows Passwords required no reinstalling Windows OS and no computer skills. You can download a windows password reset tool on the internet. It can reset Windows login Passwords. You could get back into Windows just within few minutes. I recommend this site http://www.reset-windows-password.com
The experience forgot admin windows password happened to me few days ago. And I searched in the Internet to find the solution. Then I found a windows password reset tool called Windows Password Reset have a good evaluation.
I tried it as the steps: Step1:Download and install Windows Password Reset Step2:Burn Windows Password Reset ISO file to CD/DVD,or USB. Step3:Put in my newly created CD and remove my Windows Password.
try to do boot in safe mode by tapping F8 on the dell logo screen. loggin as admin or try to leave password box blank then enter. if you can access the admin in safe mode delete the existing profiles in the windows.
try F2 you didnt say whether it was set in the bios or in the initial configuration pages. However a F9 whilst booting takes you to restore the factory settings(every other boot) goto restore factory settings--press "E"-- choose restore image--press "B"-- then try to reconfigure the first few pages of the initialising programs,date,time,location etc.
gawa ka muna ng bios update para ma configure nito ang system mo ng bagong bios.. then reinstall ang Operating System mo...
or kun di ka sigurado sa pag update ng bios mo mag reinstall ka na lng muna nga Operating System mo
para mas ma-ige ganito.... 1. may standard na cd nga os mo gaya windows 2. insert mo yung cd mo 3. sundin ang intruction pag may limutaw na nag sasabing (update is recomended) piliin mo yan 4. enter mo yung serial at tapusin yung download...
kun limilitaw ang error na>>>NACORRUPT UNG STANDARD VGA GRAPHICS ADAPTER mas maegi na b4 mag load ang system mo ilagay mo muna ang cd ng os mo...
