    Forum rules:

    Remember for next time:

    1) Search BEFORE you post

    Take a look at my main site at and perform a simple search by using the search box on the top right side of each page. Also, I cannot stress enough that you should always perform a seach on these forums before asking your "very important and unique" question. Many questions have already been answered, there is no point in answering them again. Duplicate questions will be deleted or locked out, and users that cannot understand this simple rule will either be ignored, or banned if they can't get the hint.

    This should get you started:

        There are many open source tools out there, so don't limit yourself to this forum, use Google or any other search engine and please do come back to us with some nice tips, tools and information on this topic.

        We are all waiting. You are a very active member of these forums, and I'm sure you'd appreciate it if someone else would have done the same for you.

          I suppose Active@ Password Changer tool should help you. It is a small yet powerful tool that can quckly reset lost or forgotten pass. the tool helped me before so give it a try.
