TechRepublic members don't aid password cracking

TR members do not assist in password recovery or removal.
Do not respond to this thread.

We, the members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery/removal of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover/remove a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we, the members of TechRepublic, will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, hard drive password recovery/removal should be taken up with the manufacturer of the hard drive, etc...

To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

Here it very much depends on the Make & Model of the Computer

by OH Smeg In reply to how to remove password fr ...

Many newer units need to be returned to the Authorized Service Agents to remove the Password that you set and forgot.

With IBM when this system first started it was a good way of getting back at your employer by setting a BIOS Password as it effectively junked the NB as it was cheaper to replace the locked unit than it was to send it in for repair and you had the added benefit of getting a new NB with a full factory warranty.

The business could also add that Employee Name to a Do Not Employ List and not give them a reference worth having when this happened.
