A friend of mine was having all kinds of problems with his pc but he could not tell me exactly what he done just prior to the problems. I told him to try system restore and see if it helped. He restored the pc back about 2 months. The problem is that he changed his windows password a couple times since the selected restore point date and now he canít remember what it was. He punched in passwords for more than an hour to no avail. Can someone tell me how to change or delete the password so we can get back into the pc. I have power suite pro 2008 live cd. I have used it several times when people forget the password and it has always worked well, however for whatever reason it wonít work on this pc. It runs and tells me that the password has been reset but upon reboot it is the same. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Since what you are asking for is against board rules, since it involves by passing security measures.

Hello

Unfortunately, as cryptodan mentioned it is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to defeat existing copyright or security measures. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for these reasons we do not provide this type of information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a PM.

Thank you for your understanding.
