Though Ophcrack is free, it can not figure out your password with 100% rate, and you need to wait a long time for the process.

 

And i recommend you another efficient password reset tool - Windows Password Unlocker, instead of recovering the password, it is to reset your password within minutes. You can have a try.

Nice post. Windows 7 and vista provide oppurtunity to create password reset disk before hand but most of us don't know how to create? or sometimes forget to create password reset disk. At that time only windows password recovery software can solve the problem.

If you are not a computer technician, or not familiar with computer system operations, you may feel the above methods are scary and still can’t figure out what I am saying. Then you may try to use the software programs which may suit you. The existing software that used to recover passwords are many.Windows password unlocker 4.0 (http://www.passwordunlocker.com/products/wpu.html )is mostly used by people. It’s easy-to-use little tools that people like. The program do not require professional knowledge. You just follow the instructions to click mouse or press keys will be OK. Plus, It also works with other versions of Windows, like Windows Vista/2000/NT workstations (including Windows XP Tablet PC Edition).

I would like to introduce Windows Password Recovery Tool 2.0 . it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive do this. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.  You can download it from  http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com

So far I've had to use the Offline NT Password and Registry Editor on three occasions and it's worked perfectly every time.  I'm downloading the others as I write this.

 

A situation I have now is a Linux Ubuntu machine with no password.  I believe I remember it's possible to use a Live Disc to reset ths password, by I may be mistaken.

 

Recently, I had an old Dell D-8200 that, while I was able to use the offline editor to clear the user admin password, I also found that the BIOS had been password protected.  I never did get into it. 

In retrospect, had I used a Revealer, instead of a clearing tool, for the admin password, I may have also learned it was the same as for the BIOS.  

 

Any suggestions for clearing/revealing a BIOS password?

There is a way to reset windows password without erasing anything.
Follow the instructions:
1.Free download the iso file :http://www.resetwindowspassword.com
2.Burn it to a disk to create the boot disk, that simple.
3.Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,
4.Insert the CD, reboot from CD drive, and then just follow the process of instruction. A few steps later, admin password would be cleared
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password

You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:

1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.

Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

This is all well and good. But there are many machines out ther with no cd/dvd drives; ie netbooks??? (the fasterest growing area in cumputer sales, currently)

What do you do then...... wipe out your portable cd/dvd drive, ya right! When was the last time you saw one of those?

Bootable thumb drives? This artical did not montion that.  Trying to make one of those bootable with thier computer is most likely problematic, at best.  

Ever wonder why writers do not do enough complete research first, before publishing a technical how to artical? I lost count back in 2003 at 574.  It happens even here at one of the best PC mags around!

That is beyond the scope of this article.
 
As a writer, you can't possibly predict the different combinations of computer components people have or what type of computers. Many of these netbooks also run a modified version of Linux. Some run Windows, but there are some that run Linux.
 
Almost every computer has an optical drive. Some don't, but then again they probably have a USB optical drive. I picked one up at Wal-Mart last year for about $30. You can always use an IDE/Sata to USB adapter to do it too.

I have used the XP version of Ophcrack on Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2003 Server and XP.  It is fast and will scare you how well it works.

avatar

FrancesTheMute

this seems pretty cool.  Just downloaded it and popped the disk into a machine I'm building for one of our users.  I'm wondering if in a domain environment if it doesn't work as well, since while it did find the local admin account password, it did not find either of the 2 user accounts that have been added to the machine.

Works pretty quick, too.  It took 6m 2s to complete.

Well, in a domain environment, it's easier for a Domain Admin to reset a user's password than it is to go through the process of cracking it. In Active Directory, it's as simple a right-click. I've used the Offline utility sucessfully several times, including on a machine that was so infested with crap that it would deny any password then lock out the account and on a Server 2003 box.
