    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 your local computer repair store or 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. This will cause TechRepublic's forums to show up in a search engine's results for key words that relate to password cracking which, in turn, could lead to more password cracking questions.

    I do respect your position on this matter. However, you should focus your threats and name calling on the person that IS posting hacking instructions, Paul Mah.
    I am just pointing out the double standard in a way that it won't be overlooked.
    I will check back next week to see if you got this, as you say it, dimwit's post pulled.

    TR itself can do as it pleases and quite rightly posts topics about a range of issues.

    The TR Peers who inhabit the Q & A Forums though are a different kettle of Fish. They are IT Professionals who are tasked with keeping the hardware that they supervise secure. As such the TR Peers have made a decision after much debate not to answer Password Cracking Questions on a Public Forum as it makes our lives that much harder and can be seen as contributing to/encouraging Illegal Activity.

    By all means you are free to directly contact a member if they chose to have the Peer Mail enabled and tell them how to Crack things if you wish but posting things like that on a Public Forum is a no no in anyones book with half a brain.

    If you don't agree with this post here with your reasons

    But don't be surprised if complaints are made and posts like the one above are marked a Spam.

    I posted my thoughts there but I am still looking for a ruling.

    I honestly did not know that there was such a separation between TR Blogs and TR Forums. I just considered it all to be TR. Seeing instructions for hacking in the blogs and active hacker bashing in the forum just came across as hypocritical to me.

    Maybe it is just me but no matter what happens I just don't think it is ever professional to bash or lie to anyone.

    you first need to get some memory enhancers, then utilize them. When you can finally remember again, remember where you placed the password.
    Unlike popular beliefs, passwords do not 'wander' or 'roam' on their own. They will stay right where you put them, unless outside forces are involved. Such forces include
    wind -- even from a fan or open window. Search around the area where wind may have blown the password away.
    children -- this is a common thing, make sure that they didnt eat the password. However, often they just move it to a new location.
    other people in the house -- Yes, if you left the password in an insecure location, other people may have thrown it out not knowing what it was. This is YOUR fault for being an idiot.

    this small list only addresses the most common problems. Some places to look would be the garbage, toilet, kids stomach, around the house and under furniture, and -- if you still cannot find it, next time put one of those key alarms on it.

    I sincerely hope this helps

    Ok, I will start with a favorite. The OP really should read this and take careful notes.
    The very best way to enhance memory is to increase the oxygen in the brain area. For the quickest solution, one can get a syringe and fill it with air. Then find a good artery or vein and pump the air directly into the bloodstream.
    However, in some places, getting a syringe is hard, in this case, a carbide drill should work fine. Above the hair line drill a small hole in your scalp. a 1/8 to 1/4 inch drill bit should suffice.
    However, if the brain still has problems with proper oxygen levels, a second hole should be drilled 2 inches farther back. Keep doing this until the oxygen levels are appropriate.
