Recover lost passwords easily.
A lost admin password can definitely help one to define the words “frustrated”, and “helpless”. Losing your password can end up with you being locked out of your own machine, and what could be more frustrating than that?
You would think that it would be virtually impossible to forget your Logon password; but it happens more frequently than you might think.
I have several friends who rarely use their computers, and sure enough, I got a call recently from one of those friends who had forgotten her Logon password.
My friend, a writer and author, had just gotten over her writers block, (a common writers affliction), which she had endured for months, and it was now time for her to hit the keys. Being a smart woman she had written down her password, but as so often happens, she had “lost” the piece of paper. Being a smart woman, plan number two was to call me. Ha!
Within a few minutes after arriving at her home; her machine was up and running. So, a potentially disastrous situation was handled quickly, efficiently, no mess, no fuss. To my friend it seemed like magic.
In a sense it was magic, but the magic was all about using the right tool. In this case, the tool of choice was PCLoginNow, a simple, free application, designed specifically to reset Windows logon passwords, change an account to administrator level, lock or disable accounts, and to set passwords to never expire.
PCLoginNow doesn’t recover the forgotten password as many password cracking programs do, instead it erases the password. In handling the problem in this way, you can then Logon to Windows without inputting a password.
If you are a “geeky techie” who has a lot of friends who expect you to solve all of their computer related problems, then PCLoginNow is a must have tool.
First, download the ISO image file which you’ll then burn to a CD. Using the application, is as simply as booting the affected machine from the CD. A great solution to what can often be a nasty problem.
