I use Spotmau to crack admin passwords on machines I repair. Not even Hirens is as comfortable to use.
Hey kaywat716, download Hirens ISO. It has pwd reset tools for any account. Interesting tool, but even using the largest table, unable to crack my Upper and lower case alpha-numeric with special character password. I imagine testing the security etc of passwords can be useful, yet resetting takes minutes.
I am trying to download the vista special table (8gb) it has a down arrow next to it suggesting it is a free download but it is not working....is it no longer free or have I missed something???
I have Windows 7; I forgot my password & I'm the administrator on the computer. This program is supposed to unlock the account for you or crack the password, isn't it, or am I confused? This is, I believe, the third program of this type I have tried. Everything starts fine, downloads quick, but when I go to "run" the program, it, on all three programs, asks me for the administrators password. I do not have the password which is exactly why I am trying to use the program in the first place! I'm just so confused. Am I doing something wrong? Or does this program just not do what I think it does? SOMEONE, please help me.
I tested it using a custom win32 (MinGW) build and an OS X build and it worked great. Took exactly 1-3 seconds to recover passwords from hashes
