You can use this free software.
Read the instructions first, then scroll down and download the cd-image. How to make the cd is explained under the download link for cd.
Also the use is not difficult. Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD. restart the computer with the cd in the drive. follow the instructions, and answer the questions. Most answers will be the default answer, so it's really simple...

Is there something we should know when reset Windows server administrator password?


First, I think we had better know which way we could use to reset Windows server administrator password.

Second, we should know a little about what preparation we have to make for Windows server password recovery with each way. This will help you much when you really lose or forget Windows password.

Third, we should know how to choose most appropriate way from several password recovery ways. For example, if there are some software could reset Windows server password, you had better analyze which one provides the effective result and needs the shortest time. Learn how to compare one software with another software on which aspects is necessary too.

You can refer to this passage how to choose appropriate software for your computer.

Tip

SAM file Vulnerability in Microsoft Windows OS !



I’m introducing this tip to explain to you the dangerous vulnerability in windows (2000 ,XP, Vista and WIN7 ) Local users accounts .
The important question here is: am I safe when using windows user account with a strong password ?
Does this password prevents other people see or access my own and very private files?
The answer is definitely NO !!!
Because of SAM file Vulnerability that microsoft insists to use in every OS version starting with windows 2000 till now.
The local accounts you create in windows are stored in SAM file that exists in the following path “C:Windows\System32\config” .

The good news is that the file is encrypted but the bad news is that there is a lot of third party tools that can clear any password stored in that file Offline (via booting from a boot disk or CD or USB drive that contains the crack tool ) , and if anyone managed to apply such software on your pc that means that he is able to login with a blank password . but wait a second the victim can easily discover that someone missed up the his or her password (this is good but too late ) because the attacker has got what he wanted.

Some clever Hackers uses another technique which is : copying your original SAM file to some safe place , then apply one of the third party tools, then reboot and enjoys accessing your files eventually he restore your original SAM file (which contains your Non-blank password) by overwriting the cracked SAM . this way you won’t even feel any change to your VERY SECURE PASSWORD !!!!.


Putting all in a nutshell , nothing is 100% secure , i suggest to take these these best practices in to your concedratin :

- Use Bios Password instead of windows password specially with laptops(in laptops Bios password can not be cracked or cleared by Jumper )
- Never leave your confidential data on the same hard disk drive of your pc , it is better to save them to external hard drives or USB sticks or DVD.
-Convert Fat32 drives to NTFS and Use Encrypting File System (EFS) feature to store files in an encrypted format on your hard disk.
-Some laptops has a hardware encryption chip that can encrypt data on hard disk drive.
-windows vista and 7 (Ultimate and Business Edition) has a new hard disk encryption feature called BitLocker that prevents a thief who boots another operating system or runs a software hacking tool from breaking Windows files .

How do I bypass system password on Toshiba Satellite A25-S2792 Laptop?


If you want to reset the windows password, you can use some third-party software. I recommend Windows Password Buster. This software can help you create a password reset disk. And with the password reset disk you can easily reset the password.

My net book is locked and i forgot my password


Hello!

Solution 1: if you have windows 7 installed and luckily you have made the Password reset disk then it can reset your password..

Solution 2: if you have windows xp/vista then try to hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and then enter USER ID = administrator and PASSWORD = administrator. (this will only work if you have Standard user a/c and the admin A/c haven't been configured. )

Solution 3: If nothing above mentioned can be resorted then to last resort use the third party Linux Live CDs to reset passwords.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemrescuecd/files/sysresccd-x86/2.2.0/systemrescuecd-x86-2.2.0.iso/download

boot from the cd and follow the instruction ,

To brief it out : step 1 : ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows -o force
step 2 : cd /mnt/windows/Windows/System32/config
step 3 : chntpw -l SAM
step 4 : chntpw -u username SAM (replace word username with your login userID)
step 3 : press 2 hit enter and then enter new password then again hit enter and press Y to save and then hit enter.

Note : The above steps may change according to the PATH..

Done.. your new password has been set.

I forgot my password and when i turn my computer on it has a black screen and a blue box in the middle ask for current password , when i try a password it tells me that password check fail with a white box...


Try administrator with no password to log on. Sometimes the default administrator account has not been set a password.

You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc.

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.
