Hi,

I am assuming that you are referring to your Windows login password... if not please give more details.
==================================

There are many password recovery utilities on the net, using dictionary based cracking algorithms. Some of the more expensive ones also use an inverse lookup database for the
password hash-file entries.

One of the best was a free or nearly free program made by a company called SysInternals run by Mark Russinovich. Unfortunately Mark Russinovich was hired by Microsoft, and his new website, now called winternals no longer offers this utility. You can probably still find it on the NET if you google it.

Also:

Do you have another account on this computer, such as the main administrator account. IF you do you can log into it, and reset/change your own password. If your computer comes up with a bunch of login icons, and the master administrator account is not listed, press Ctr-Alt-Del twice in a row at the login screen, and then enter the user ID and password for the main administrator account:

User name: Administrator
Password : ..........

If your computer came with windows pre-installed,
than the vendor should know the administrator account
password.

Please note that although the administrator account CANNOT
be deleted from windows, it can be RENAMED in the local
policy settings, and the vendor of your computer may have
done this.

Also you can plug your hard drive into another computer, and treat is as a data drive. You can then recover all your important files, providing you did not deliberately encrypt them using the
NTFS encryption utility. (Encryption is OFF by default)

Once you recover all your files, put the hard-drive back,
and re-install windows. This is guaranteed to work but
it can take a long time, depending on how many application
programs you have to re-install if you do re-install Windows.

Hope this helps, Martin


PS
Next time write down your password in a safe place, despite
of what common wisdom (or Microsoft) tells you. Given the
blinding speed of modern computers, and the parallel power of
internet computing NO password is safe from the experienced hacker or government agency, anyway. Any password that
can be remembered by humans, is definitely not safe against
a brute force (BFI) attack.

So:
Create very long and random password, full of mixed case
letters, numbers and weird characters, and then write it down
and keep copies in many safe places. Never use the same password for two unrelated purposes.

    Password Genius should work.
    The problem is you have to buy it,
    before you try it.

    But $20 is very reasonable.

    It also performs other functions,
    such as recovering obfuscated product keys
    and serials, etc.

    The success rate of a password cracker (i.e. how long it takes)
    depends on the complexity of the password ant its length,

    so the name of your pet or girlfriend is found much faster
    than a long cryptic password full of junk characters.

    However,

    Windows uses a many to one hashing algorithm to reduce
    the password's complexity, before it stores it in encrypted form.
    (this is dumb and very weak)

    The encryption uses a one way algorithm, which is not
    (easily) reversible.

    When you login, the password you type is hashed (compacted)
    and encrypted in the same way, only the two encrypted versions are compared, the password is never available in the clear.

    The hash/encryption algorithm is public, and the location of the
    passwords is known, it is the non-reversibility of this algorithm
    that protects the password from prying eyes.

    Password crackers start by using a dictionary of popular passwords (names, birthdays, cigarette brands etc...) and
    feed these through the hashing algorithm in search of a match.

    If this fails, then they feed-in the entire English dictionary,
    and other popular languages, until a match is found.

    If that fails, then they mutate the words, rotate characters,
    insert digits and punctuation, substitute sound alikes, etc.

    All of the above efforts are "astronomically" faster than
    brute force.

    Finally, if intelligence fails, the crackers do resort to the BFI
    (Brute force and Ignorance) attack, by trying all possible
    binary combinations at astronomic speeds, taking into
    account any simplification offered by Microsoft's imperfect
    hashing algorithm.

    Ultra expensive cracking software ($700) provides rapid,
    industrial quality password recovery, by having a multi-CD
    (precalculated) reverse lookup database for all possible hashcodes. Remember that there are fewer hash codes than
    possible passwords, so the program will recover a password that works, not necessarily the original password you used.

    Hope this gives you some insight

    Martin

I have an 8gg memorex travel drive. I have forgotton the password for the portable vault and entered the incorrect one a number of times and I think it has now locked itself.Anyway I can gain access to...


the portable vault programs that come with the USB type flash drives have no give and take, you can recover the drive by deleting the files.

for the password, you need to know it. but there is a way to get an unlimited number of tries. back up all the files to a folder on the hard drive, the program will refuse to run from there but that also means the counter isnt counting. run the original and atempt the passwords. when you think you have used the max tries then delete the files and restore from your back copy and continue trying.
