  • Windows password reset tools

    Do any of these password resetting utilities cause the computer to be more vulnerable to hackers afterwards?
    I'm running Win XP Pro on a laptop. Somehow my password got changed and I don't know how, and now I can't even get into my machine.

    Also, my Sonic CD burner only lists
    ISO level 2
    ISO+Joliet
    ISO+Joliet+UDF

    Which format should I use?

    Thanks, Doug

    Well it depends on the utility. The good ones don't install anything; they run from a bootable CD and simply edit a windows file to change the password.

    As for the ISO question - please post that in a new thread.

              I have used "Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor"

              It is Unix based and it is a little nerve racking when going through it the first time. If you follow step 4 in this link, http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

              This should do the trick.

              One confusing point is when it seems to ask over and over again? Save or exit.

              If you have done the steps like it says, save first and then exit.

              I went with the step of making the admin password blank.

              Hope this helps,

              Good Question? rvalstar, I see nothing to indicate been solved.
