How fast can you reset Windows 7 password?


It needs only one second for you to forget Windows password. It might happen when you come back home from a vacation, or after you changed the Windows 7 password yesterday, you already forget it today. Whatever, There will be million reasons for you cannot login Windows 7.

So what should you do now? Borrow a computer or login a guest account to surf on internet and find out all the possibilities to recover Windows 7 password?You will find that there are some common ways. We will introduce these methods for you, and hope it can save your time.

Methods 1: Guess your password!
Time: 1 minute ~ Million Years
Recommend: ★

This method depends on how much you remember about the password. But obviously most of us cannot remember, so the forgetting Windows password stuff keeps happening.

But I do believe you forgot the password because you are not familiar with it. Depend on human's computing ability, it's not crazy that cost you million year to guess your password. If you still cannot login after ten minutes guessing, you should try another way to retrieve Win7 password or just waste much more time.

Methods 2: Ophcrack
Time: More than 2 hours
Recommend: ★

Official Website: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
Ophcrack is a famous and free Windows password recovery software. The big disadvantage of ophcrack is the large ISO file. The 496Mb file takes a while to download, what is more, can you image how hard to burn such large file to a blank CD? It will enlarge unsuccessful rate. But once you succeed in burning a bootable CD, it will take only minutes to recover your lost Windows password.

Methods 3: Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
Time: More than 1 hour for a new user

Recommend: ★★

Official Website: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/
The Offline NT Password & Registry Editor is one of the fastest free Windows password reset tool. It will remove Windows 7 password instead of recovering the Windows password like ophcrack.
The ISO file is only 3 Mb. So there is no problem to download or burn this file.
But what slows down the whole Windows 7 password reset process is the DOS based interface which is inconvenient. Sometimes, I even don’t know what to put in. So if you are a newbie with computer, it might take you a while to reset Windows 7 password with Offline NT Password & Registry Editor.

Methods 4: Windows Password Reset Standard
Time: 5 Minute!

Recommend: ★★★★

Official Website: http://www.resetwindowspassword.com/password-reset-sta.html
Windows Password Reset Standard is a password reset tool from Anmosoft which is a professional software provider with high quality and friendly user interface. Windows Password Reset Standard is embedded with burning software and an only 1.94Mb ISO file. So it will not take longer 3 minutes to download and burn a password reset CD.

After booting up this CD, the easy to use interface will take you only seconds to reset Win7 password. Even Kids can remove Windows 7 password with Windows Password Reset Standard. So please place your Password reset CD safely and away your computer!

The above three pieces of Windows password recovery software all support Windows 7 password recovery. How fast can you reset Windows 7 password will depend on which method you choose and your computer skill level? Want to Remove Win7 password in five minutes? Try Windows Password Reset Standard now!

How to copy your commercial DVDs to the ARCHOS 7


With an 800x480 pixel-wide resolution and a 7" TFT LCD screen, the ARCHOS 7 can absolutely provide users with the best cinema experience on the go. You can watch your movies in full width, which will give you the same viewing comfort as a TV in your living room. Your video watching experience on the go will never look so good.
Because of the excellent cinema experience, and its huge capacity - both 160G and 320G versions are having enough room to store movies, more and more users would like to copy their DVD collections to the handheld device. To copy a commercial DVD to the ARCHOS 7, you need a program called Pavtube DVD Ripper to rip it into ARCHOS 7 compatible file formats, like AVI, MPEG4, AVI video, and WMA, AAC, WAV audio. The following paragraphs will detail the steps of how to rip DVDs for playback on ARCHOS 7, if you are searching for such a solution, just read on it to get what you need.
First of all, you can download Pavtube DVD Ripper here.

Step 1: Load DVD files
Click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" to import DVD files to this program. This utility allows users selecting their needed chapters to convert, and you can right click on a title, and then do selections on the popup window, like "Uncheck All", "Show Chapters", etc. By the way, usually, the one with the longest duration time is the main movie, so just tick off this one would be OK.
Step 2: Select output format for ARCHOS 7
Click on the pull down menu of "Format", and then all the format profiles will be listed out as below, just select "Archos" firstly, and then choose a format for ARCHOS 7, here I select "Archos 5/7 WMV Video (*.wmv) for instance.
Step 3: Set advanced settings
Click "Settings" button, then you are able to adjust video and audio parameters like codec, bit rate, aspect ration, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel in the following interface. Basically, the default settings can ensure the output quality to be good, so, if you do not have special requirements, there is no need to change the settings.

Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start DVD ripping
Once your DVD is ripped, you can find out the output files via clicking on "Open" button, and then drag the file over to your ARCHOS 7 for playback.

Every time that i click on my favorite icon,my archos 7 re boot it self,shut down then start back up.will not let me get into my favorite's files. any solution.


Hi, when this happens it usually means the operating system is corrupt, the best thing to do is to reflash your Archos, you obtain the required software and then plug into the USB port and then using the proprietary software to reflash the internal memory on the Archos to replace the operating system, and restore it to functionality, if you ONLY copy over the system files you will keep all you old settings.
You need to go to the Archos website to obtain the Firmware also there is s "How to" reflash your Archos 7.

Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.

Found it on tha FAQ at Archos website. It worked on mine.
Best regards

My Archos 605 is freezing or stops responding during playback, or when recording, what should I do?
First take a look if your battery is fully charged.

You can also make a long press on the on/off button for 15 seconds; it will switch off the unit and your data will be not erased

If your device continues to stop and freeze, you have the possibility to format it from the settings menu; you can do this into settings, then select system and repair and format tools.

Before doing this, you have to save all your files on your computer

We called tech support and you fix it by doing a reset on the base of the device. We used a paperclip to push the button. Hope this helps!
