Forgotton Password

Hi guys
I have forgotten the password for the main user / administrator on a machine I have at home.

Does anyone have any password cracker software?


Take it easy ....but, take it all the way.

Too big to email

have a look at this

Can't advise any particular one as we haven't used any of these - the EBCD looks good though.

EBCD – Emergency Boot CD (v0.61 - October 2004)

I used to use that, worked really well.

Silly question, have you tried blank password?

Another dead easy way round this on XP is simply to boot up in safe mode. Log on as the administrator (you dont need a password) and then use the change password option in the control pannel. Restart normally and it should work (this has worked for me on several occastions!)
