Remove the disk and install it in a working computer as the second disk drive. You will be able to see all the files on the computer.

If this is a laptop, you'll need some special cables as laptop disks don't use the same connections as desktop disks. You can buy the cables at local store or online.

Please click the following Link.You will be directed to a website of a free software called "OrphCrack" this is an excellent software for password recovery.

http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/#livecd

If your brother's operating system is XP or Vista. On a separate computer download "Ophcrack Live CD" XP or Vista which I do know, then burn (The iso image) it on a CD. Insert the CD in your brothers computer. boot from the CD and you will be able to recover the password in no time.

Windows live messenger password


Every time you choose to save a password in an application or on a Web site, the password data is stored in a secure location on your computer. If you are an administrator, you can access the password data and retrieve a list of passwords that have been used on your computer. Password data is stored in different ways on PC and MacIntosh computers, but the information is accessible on both types of systems.

Log on to your PC computer with an administrator account. Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Run" button. Type "keymgr.dll" into the text box and hit "Enter." The Key Manager utility program will launch and display a list of passwords used on the computer. Highlight the password item you want more information about. Click on the "Properties" button on the right side of the window to view more information about the selected password item. The pop-up window will display the username, password and server address for the selected item. b> Mac Instructions b> Log on to your MacIntosh computer with an administrator account. Open a new "Finder" window by clicking on the icon in the dock. Go to the "Utilities" folder in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive. Double-click on the "Keychain Access" icon to launch the utility program. A list of all the passwords used on your computer will be displayed. Highlight a password item and click on the "i" button at the bottom of the window to view more information about it. Hope this helps.

There are a couple of ways that you can fix this problem. My first question is does your brother know what you are about to do? The next question is Is he OK with you doing this. Here is how to reset the router log into it and set things up the way that you want. If the router is this type then follow these instructions.

Press and hold the reset button on the back of the router for about 10-15 seconds. What this does is it reset the router to default. After that LOG IN TO the router using 192.168.0.0. This is a default ip address. After you have gotten to the log in screen it will ask for a username and password. This information should be located on the bottom of the router. It should be something like USERNAME: administrator and PASSWORD: password.
Again these are common default password ans usernames for a lot of devices out there. Once you are logged in to the router inside there you are able to edit change and remove any and all bocks that your brother has enabled.

Again I stress that your brother knows what you are doing since he is the one paying for the internet.

Please mark this solution as a FIXYA ifthis solves your problem.

Need password unlock code for HP Pavilion dv5


You can start it in safe mode pressing the F8 key...it change between brands but must out there use f8... when you start in "safe mode" in the log in screen you will find your user name and the administrator one...normally the administrator don't have password, so you can log into it and there you have the permission to delete other users passwords...
If you don't found that option, there is an other option but you need to download it and burn it in a cd... Is called ERD Commander here is the link for it: http://rapidshare.com/files/113560492/ERD.Commander.2008.CrOwN.rar... the password for decompress it is:( munda ) when you have burned it, insert it in you cd drive> go to your computer bios>select boot priority>change it for boot from cd first...once you have done that press f10 and select the option yes to save your settings and restart your pc....then your computer will start with a wizard looking like windows xp...complete all the things that it request...when finally boots up>go to start menua and select system tools>locksmith and delete all the passwords that you want...that's it! restart without the cd in the drive and log in! "Hope it works for you"
