    Vista Password Lost foreverrr

    hey guys i have a HP computer that is running vista. I had this computer in my closet for a while and today i felt like playing with it, i put a password on the admin account and forgot it. now i tried going through guest and "forcefully" add a user with admin settings [ net /add user eruiz * ] but that didnt work, i ran the hdd as an external to see the files on there but it would be nice to see them on my separate computer.


    help?

    Do you have the original Vista install disk for that laptop? I know there's a way to reset admin accounts (Windows XP) with the install disk (and practically reinstalling the OS... but not). There might be a similar way to do that with the Vista disk.

    you could make a KonBoot boot disk, login as admin with a blank password [that's what kon-boot does when you boot from the disk] and change the password. it works on all 32/64 bit Windows systems. or you can use a Linux system with NT_PASS compiled.

    Any distro of Backtrack Linux will have a password cracking utility. Google how to crack vista password with backtrack. It's really easy.

    Hiren's Boot CD.

    A geek's Swiss Army knife.

    It has various Windows password recovery and removal utilities as well as hundreds of others for various purposes.

    Just make sure you are using a version higher than 10.

    Re: Vista Password Lost foreverrr Cool

    You can try to reset the password in Vista with command prompt.
    1. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options just before the Windows loading screen appears.
    2. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
    3. Log in with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen.
    4. Type net user in the command prompt and then hit Enter. All the Windows account user names will be listed for you.
    5. Type net user Helen 123 and hit Enter.
    ‘Helen’ is your locked Windows account user name. And ‘123’ is the new password you want to reset for the account.
    If you cannot enter the safe mode, I’m afraid you have to create a password reset disk with a CD or USB drive as follows. Otherwise, reinstallation will be your only choice.
    Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Reset Tool in any computer from its official site

    Step 2: Use CD/DVD/USB drive to create a password disk via the program.
    Step 3: Boot your locked computer from CD/DVD or USB
    Step 4: Reset Vista password with the burned CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
