How can I retrieve the password

History

hello,

i was given a hp g60-230us laptop running vista home premium because my friend forgot the password and couldent find a utility that would work

i would like to keep the laptops programs and such intact because i was told he has all sorts of useful goodies like games on it and i WILL NOT REMOVE CRAPWARE AGAIN!(i did it for him)

is there any fix to retrieve the password and retrieve it or reset it?

after i get it going it may have 7 on it

try this trick:

Login with the default administrator account

Step 1: Start Windows PC

Step 2: When you can see the Windows login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box

Step 3: Type Administrator as Username and leave the Password field blank

Step 4: Press the Enter Key and then you can be able to login the default windows administrator account which is it created by default when install windows.

Note: When you input the key combination Please don't put the cursor on any account. And if you change the name or password before, you cannot login by this way. so only windows password recovery utility can help you,check this out:

You can reset the password with a password reset disk. No data or program will be changed. You can create a password reset disk with CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

OK, Assuming u have the windows vista disc, boot from it select ur language and when it says "Install Now" look at the bottom left corner of the window and click "repair your computer" select ur OS then click "command prompt" a black window should come up. in the windows type:

net user yourusername *

It will say: Enter a new password for this user:

Type ur new password, reboot and ur done!

I ope my info was useful!

Download the DigiWiz Mini PE boot disk. Boot to cd. Use the SAM inside program to remove the password.

The best answer is chntpw, but it's an advanced tool. You might want to try this, though: http://www.pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

You'll need to use a password recovery tool independent of the local operating system. Don't worry though, the tools are well established and relatively easy to use. # Go to http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/ and download the CD image. # Burn the ISO to a disk (instructions here) # Boot your laptop from the CD that you just burned. # Follow the instructions in the screen that pops up (also referenced on the link in Step 1. You'll mostly be following the default options and selecting the user whose password you want to reset. # Make sure to write the changes before rebooting. # Log in # Do happy dance. Follow the steps above you should be able to reset Windows 7 password easily.

Want to reset vista password? You can do it like this:

Method 1:

Step 1. Click Start button, Control Panel, User Account and Family Safety, User Account orderly.

Step 2: Click Create a password reset disk and the wizard will come up

Step 3: Follow the wizard to create the password reset disk.

This method is to help you in case of lost Windows password. It is only available when you can log on with the account. (many users don’t remember to create one before forgetting the password)

Method 2: Use Windows Password Unlocker to create a Windows password reset disk with CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Step 1: Download Windows Password Unlocker Professional from http://www.passwordunlocker.com/windows-...

Step 2: Create a password reset disk with the program in any accessible PC

Step3: Insert the reset disk in your locked computer

Step 4: Remove the forgotten password with the created password reset disk

If you have a repair disk, of course you can try it to crack Windows password. But if you don't have maybe you can consider using Ophcrack. Most time it is helpful but cannot guarantee 100% successful reset. Above all, the last one should be the best method for your Windows password reset. Another safe and effective software you can try, Anmosoft Windows Password Reset, which I have used and you can visit from:
