Question about PC Desktops
This site provides
a tool to recover lost Windows XP passwords. It
works for administrator and user accounts, it
doesn't change the password just tells you the
old one. It works with encrypted files (EFS) and
password hashes. It even works if no passwords
at all are known for the machine (as long as you
have another computer with internet access to
view this website with).
Author claims it also works with Windows NT and Windows Server 2003 and Windows Longhorn, but the BEST thing about it is the fact that it won't reset your passwords, but simply reveal them for you to remember and then use.
Give it a try. The author would like to receive feedback. There is a free service as well as a priority service that will retrieve your passwords within minutes. The fee for the priority service is very cheap, and is really just to cover server costs.
Note: You'll need a blank floppy to run the process.
Update: Author now offers the same tool as a CD image for those of you who do not have a floppy in their computer.
Usage, instructions and additional information can be found at http://www.loginrecovery.com/
If you use the free version it can take 72hrs to get your password. If you want your password right away it costs about $29
I hope this helps. Please blet us know
