TR members do not assist in password recovery or removal.

by PurpleSkys In reply to Adout Comp. Admin

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.

Administor Password!!!!

by truspencer In reply to TR members do not assist ...

My Computer is 2yrs. old a few mons. ago a 'blue box' pops up with a screen name I used a few times. Asking for a password on a 'hotmail' account, which I also hardley use.
I contact my comp. manufacter, they say contact Microsoft tech support. Has anyone in M.T.S. even seen a comp. or a comp. screen? I don't think sooooo!!! I payed $ to a few 'Password Programs' to get the password, 2 siad there wasn't one, 1 said to type in 'Allow'. Nothing worked! I think with M.T.S. if I handed over my credit card I'd have THE PASSWORD in 2 mins. Their 'Support' techs gave me the stupidits answer, I'v ever heard in my life. What a racked they have going, people calling you back every day for wks. untill your so FRUSTED you pay the $60.00 to get their help. Now I'm playing with them, writting down their answers & having a good laugh, I'm new to computers, but still I know more then Microsoft's..so called 'Tech Support'.
As it is I'm stuck with a usless pile of plastic & boards, I'v gotten 'their rude' letter, now one from this site. If Microsoft wants to 'Jerk' people around, I might as well 'Jerk' back.
I'm disabled, my husb. has Cancer, even 'paying' someone to get me the password, would be a hardship on me. Buying another computer is out of the question, where I bought this one is out of bussiness. I bought the comp. mons before I knew they were going to fold. I wasn't even looking for an answer just looking around the site.
Thank's for your answer, & all the 'Fun' the other members 'Jokes'. I'll just hook up my old computer & be back online. By the way Microsoft letter was 'rudder' then your's.
BBBYYY!!!

It sounds like ransomware

by NickNielsen In reply to Administor Password!!!!

A program is loaded onto your PC that prevents you doing anything with it until you pay somebody? It's nothing to do with Microsoft or the PC manufacturer and everything to do with on-line criminals.

Your best bet is to have a competent PC tech wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows.

You know

I want to be you when I grow up.

I shot Diet Dr. Pepper out my nose.

If that's your goal,

by CharlieSpencer In reply to You know

step one is to switch from Diet Dr. Pepper to Diet Pepsi, preferably the caffeine free version.

My wife drinks Dr. P. I think it tastes like carbonated prune juice.

It's a long, complicated process

by NickNielsen In reply to Adout Comp. Admin

But it's the same for each OS.

First, obtain the following tools:
#2 Phillips screwdriver with a 6-inch (15 cm) blade
1kg hammer

Find the password access port on your PC. The easiest way to do this is to move your hand around the outside of the case. The access port will be blowing warm air.

Orient the case on the desktop so the access port is at the top and the bottom of the case is toward you. DO NOT unplug the system; you will not be able to access the password properly if you do.

Place the tip of the screwdriver at the 6-o'clock position on the access port, halfway between the inner and outer borders of the port grid.

Hold the blade of the screwdriver securely. (If you hold the handle, you might hit your hand.) Strike (don't tap, strike!) the handle of the screwdriver sharply. Your password will now be broken.

The advantage of this method is you will no longer need a password on that system.

edit: imo unowho

Must be something in my eyes.
