Tally45 password forgotten
Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?
Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.
If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.
Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.
Reboot your machine.

Forgotten password to open tally45
This is a problem the only way to deal with this is to try to input until you can access your computer. Also if it is a Win 7 loaded computer you can look at the password hint section. Also for everyone it is advisable to make a password reset disk in case this does happen. Also you can completely re load your software if you cannot access the computer. This will give you back your operating system.
There is special software programs out there that will crack your password because there is so many of them I would not even attempt to share a link. I also highly recommend typing out the password in small readable print it out and cut it neatly and tape it with scotch tap under the DVD-R or CD tray when you open it right along the edge of the front lip.
Also use a password you will never forget use small caps only. John
