How to recover Windows Password

Due to the security features built into Windows XP, it is virtually impossible to get back into the system without the password.

You have several options to try and get around this problem.

If you have access to another user account with administrator rights, you can use that account to change the password of the account that is locked out. You can also use the default Administrator account that is built into Windows XP.

First you need to boot the system into Safe Mode.

  1. Restart your system.
  2. When you see the blue screen, press the ( F8 ) key about 3 times a second.
  3. You should get the Windows startup menu. Use the (Up or Down) arrow keys to highlight (SafeMode).
  4. Press (Enter) on (Safe Mode), then press (Enter) on (Windows XP).
  5. The system should boot to Safe Mode.

Once you are at the Account Log on Screen, click on the icon for the user account with administrator rights, or click on the icon for the administrators account.

Note: For Home the Administrator account isn’t normally shown & in Safe Mode you have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys twice to show. For PRO you can do this in normal mode

When the system has booted to the desktop, use the following steps to change the accounts password.

  1. Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools.
  2. Click Computer Management.
  3. Double click Local Users and Groups, double click the folder Users.
  4. Right click on the account name that is locked out, and click on Set Password.
  5. You may get a warning message about changing the password, simply click proceed.
  6. Leave the New Password box blank, also leave the Confirm Password box blank.
  7. Click OK, and OK again.
  8. Then close all Windows, reboot the system and try to log in.

There are also applications that can recover the password for you.

If the above information does not help in recovering the password, the only option left is to format the hard drive then reinstall Windows and the system software

Download Complete website-Browse offline

Website eXtractor saves you time and effort by downloading entire Internet sites (or the sections you stipulate) to your hard drive.

Whether you browse the web for research, work, or fun, there's nothing worse than having to wait for page after page to load in Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator (or in other popular browsers). The problem is they will only load one page at a time. So if you are viewing a large website with a thousand pages, you'd have to click the mouse a thousand times ... and ... choose a directory/folder a thousands times when you want to save each file. You end up spending a lot of time waiting around and not enough time reading or viewing pages on the Internet.

Note: Using a regular browser to surf large websites or photo galleries takes the fun out of web browsing and makes research a real chore.

But now, with WebSite eXtractor, you can download whole websites (or parts of them) in one go to your computer. You can then view the whole site offline at your leisure - and you can whiz through the saved pages at lightning speed.

WebSite eXtractor is a great tool for researchers, journalists, students, equity analysts, business and marketing executives - as well as for those who want to browse family websites containing digital photo albums.

Advantages :

  • Transfer whole websites to CD-ROM or floppy
  • Another big benefit of the program is it changes html-links to relative names. In other words, it turns web addresses (URLs) into addresses that work on your computer.
  • Researchers, writers, and journalists can easily archive reference material from the Internet.
  • The program can download up to 100 files at a time, which saves you a huge amount of time compared to ordinary browsers.
  • Website eXtractor automatically lets you download any files that were not copied due to transfer errors or bad connections.
