This Might work. Try Removing all power from your computer, including the battery for at least 5 minutes. then turn the computer back on and reset the passwords you had saved on the computer.

Mr. Powers41 doesn't read ...

you're thinking BIOS password when our CaPiTaLIzaTIOnaLLY challenged inquisitor clearly says "Administrator" and "Screen Saver" ... removing the motherboard battery and all power for 5 minutes does nothing to the windows user's password.

Oh well.. not like there isn't billions of links out there on the how to..

and I did look and couldn't find the rule book.. thought maybe it was finally dropped since its a relatively stupid idea ... much like book burning... "oh we don't like that idea, lets burn it" ..

Legal issues

There are possible legal ramifications involved in this. I know it can be easily found on the web but that's really not the point.

The point is that assisting someone in breaking a password could be considered assisting in a crime. It's more a precaution than anything else.

Hardly.

Its called, "Go somewhere else for that."

You have to know that professionals reset passwords in a variety of ways on a regular basis. This isn't some kind of censorship, it is about not having any way to know the bona fides of the person asking the question. In other words, we aren't going to chance assisting thieves and crackers to another person's information.

You are right - there is information all over the place on such things. So, people can easily look elsewhere.

And I still can't understand why signing up to post a comment is easier than doing a web search. I am entirely unable to understand how internet users are incapable of doing a search. Half of them have a search engine as a home page, and can find all sorts of other stuff.
