vista password forgotten

Recommended Posts

My mate has dug out her old laptop but she can't remember her windows password . I'm dubious about some of the torrents I've found . Any recommendations?

I remember doing one on vista. I put the application on a usb stick and booted it from bios, can't for the life of me remember the name. I'll check later if it's on my pc but suspect it may be on my old pc because it was some time ago.

Yep, that's the one i used. Think i used usb but it could have been cd. Very easy, to use and worked for me on vista when my father in laws laptop installed a windows password all on it'sown while he wasn't there.

Any other suggestion to NT Password? it is too complicated. thanks

 

 

Really?,

 

Download one fo the following

CD use http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/cd140201.zip

USB use http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/usb140201.zip

Extract and burn the .ISO to CD OR place the files on a USB drive depending on your chosen media...

CD Should be good to go once burnt.

 

For USB you'll have to make it bootable.

 

How to make a bootable USB drive

 

Once you've copied all the files that are extracted from the usbXXXXXX.zip onto a usb drive, directly on the drive, not inside any directory/folder.

It is OK if there are other files on the USB drive from before, they will not be removed.

Install bootloader on the USB drive, to do this run a command prompt in windows ( "run as administrator" if possible)

in the command line type

x:syslinux.exe -ma x:

(Replace x: with the drive letter of the USB drive (DO NOT USE C:))

If it seems like nothing happened, it is usually done.

However, a file named ldlinux.sys may appear on the USB drive, that is normal.

It should now in theory be bootable.

 

 

Works for me mate for all windows, even 10.

NT Password is too complicated for beginners. Ophcrack/Kon-boot/UUkeys are good alternatives to NT Password for vista password recovery

As i know , to use the NT password , you need to use an USB flash drive , but my computer can't recognize it , why didn't ?

The last , the CMD  helped me to reset Windwos password

My colleagues has succeed set up a new login password on their computer by resetting Microsoft account , this is also one of the solution to solve the problem of Windows password forgot
