You're a couple of years late for a BETA ...

And also unfortunate in your predicament.

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...

Assuredly, if it WAS a bug in Windows, you wouldn't have any problem!

Didnt it expire?

maybe that's the 'bug'.

If you liked it that much, why not upgrade it? Go PURCHASE a LEGAL copy to use, nitwit!

Unless you just like pirated SW, in which case you are a low life bottom feeding POS of a sh!thead that should be shot for being such a loser.

It looks all innocent, and then I mouth off -- I think its kinda funny.
However, I have been told many a time that I have a warped sense of humor :0

And every one who has told you that you have

by OH Smeg In reply to Ok,

A Warped Sense of Humor is Correct Scummy.

But for your information only the 32 Bit version of Vista Beta has expired the 64 Bit version is still functional. Though why anyone would want to use it is beyond me when that was new they where finding 5,000 different problems a Day so it was full of Bugs.

But the only reason why it may be in use is because now there are finally 64 Bit Drivers available for most commonly used Hardware so it may actually almost work now unlike when it was put out to generate Reports for M$ to finish the Development of the product.
