I've accidentally locked me out and couldn't remember my new password.

A quick search and I had what I was looking for.


It works well and gives you the choice to burn it on a CD/DVD, or a flash drive.

Related:  There is a back door you can use on LInux.

You need to boot from a flash drive or CD/DVD ("live" CD or DVD in Linux-ese).

The process involves two or three commands.  It's too easy, really.

This reminds me that the next time I do an Ubuntu install, I'll opt for an encrypted home folder.

Pretty sure you can do the same on Windows? Boot to DOS, (or its incarnation), search for password files, (.pwl - I think), delete and reboot.

I think? Delete your entire Windows 32 files and let us know what happens, please
And reboot? Nothing will boot if somebody follows your advice !!

Please be aware that this is a troll talking.
Do not believe anything a troll says.
Following his instructions (search for password files, (.pwl - I think), delete) will brick your computer

No need to boot into DOS. Depending on what machine it is, you only have to press F 8, at some F 12 to have the choice to boot it from the prepared memory stick, or a CD.

 When you do that you'll see a Windows 7 bootup, but it will bring you to the PE settings of the PC/notebook.

  Then you just disable any passwords you don't want. For example the administrator password. Then a reboot and no more password is protecting the PC from start up. wai

Delete password files? Your post could lead to the Blue Screen of death when you don't know what you're doing.

My tool is virus free, tested with Kaspersky 2017 and it works well.

I'm going to comment on this troll post because it is such a textbook classic example of troll-ism.

The infestation attaches itself to an existing thread.

It pretends to be more knowledgeable than the previous posters.

It pretends to offer help.

The "help" is in fact sabotage.

In this example, at the very least one would make a fool of oneself and waste a lot of time. The troll would probably have an orgasm if the mark then posted asking for help.

In this example, at worst, the mark would need to get the original genuine install DVD and repair his OS.

Perhaps all these troll stories should have their own thread. Maybe we'd be the first on the block to do so.
