Does anyone know of a way to bypass a windows 8 password yet? I'm more interested in bypassing a local password than a M$ account password. I have had people come to me with computers that they have forgotten the password before, and on XP I've had a bootable disk to remove the password. I was curious to know if there had been any information on a similar program for Windows 8.

I'm not trying to perform anything malicious or steal computers. Thanks! Brodie

Sorry, but we are unable to provide that type of information.

I'm not familiar with Win 8 at all...but you might take a look at http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/f/forgot-password-windows-8.htm .

 

We sympathize with your situation. Though your question about passwords is most likely legitimate, there are those who would pretend to need such assistance in order to gain unauthorized access to a computer not owned by them. We have no way of confirming ownership or if someone is being truthful with us. As such we don't provide step by step instructions but we certainly can help you find the information you seek.

This article describes the Microsoft policy about missing, lost, forgotten, or incorrect passwords...Microsoft support engineers cannot help you retrieve passwords of files and features in Microsoft products that are lost or forgotten.
Microsoft policy about lost or forgotten passwords

You can refer to these Microsoft articles.

Hello, according to rules, there is no answer here. I suggest you can search Windows password recovery tool on Google

fvpirrone, what are you insinuating?  First, you posted in another person's thread and the moderator split your post to another thread.  Then you created yet another thread on the same topic, so the moderator closed it.  Now you are posting in this thread.  Do you have a problem?

Posts dont get deleted , so if the OP doesnt respond to it ,  it stays as it is.

 

And you responded to a 2 yr old thread ?  Then Implying it wasnt answered , well it was answered under the Rules within BC.

 

Also i checked out pcqanda and maybe its just me ? ....But the Layout looks Messy and not so user friendly ..IMO.

But if it suits you , and it gave answers in plain english and helped you ......good for you.

Yes, I know a lot of posts are from 2013 or earlier but I still don't understand what you are getting at.  Can you explain?  Do you have a problem that you need help with?  What can we do for you?

No one has threatened anyone else.

Let's try to make this clear:

This topic was started on March 1st, 2014.

Replies were made to the OP.

The last one was made on August 11, 2014 after 5 months of inactivity.

fvpirrone chose to resurrect a 2 year old topic, for no apparent reason.

Incorrect is the statement "loyts of posts and replies are from 2013 or earlier" for the simple reason the topic was NOT started in 2013.

Yes, he does have a problem. Topic about that is http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/611743/password-issues/
where help will, hopefully, be received.

The other forum may suit your needs much better than Bleeping Computer.

I see this topic has gone off the rails.
Before it degenerates even more, it is closed.
