TR members do not assist in password recovery or removal.

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to password

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 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...

Whoa Mike!

by jimmy-jam In reply to here

You may want to consider revising your post. We get a lot of hackers coming to this site trying to crack passwords. Even if this guys need is legit (which I doubt) you may be helping other people who do not have the best intentions. Just something to consider.

P.S. I am right over the hill from you in Marietta :)

Cut down a tree

by seanferd In reply to password

Cut off a section of trunk that is manageable by yourself, or a couple of people, if you can get assistance. Make sure it will fit through doorways. Watch where you are going- don't clip a coworker's head!

Place this log on to the system in question.

Cheers! Hope this helps.

You are kind of out of luck

by jimmy-jam In reply to password

If you only mostly forgot your password I may have been able to help you. Since you completely forgot it there is nothing I can do for you.

Try hypnosis.
