Ripper…

Thank you very much… This is good to know…

This was for an individual User on the system… I didn’t have any defined… I was the only one… The Password I was referring to was the System Password that is needed (if there is one!) to get the system started…

I will study it further… maybe it would work… I don’t know…
I feel very embarassed for realizing that I didn’t USE A Password for the computer!!

Joe

Just in case someone else needs this:
Have had to help several forgetful family members and neighbors with lost password issues for old Windows computers.

Highly recommend using opensource program called OphCrack, source code available here on SourceForge, so you can see the code and not get tricked by rogue online hacking sites

Note it will not read Windows 10 passwords, but almost too easy to use. :)
Boot PC to CD drive, run a program and get a list of passwords on machine.
Even the slowest brute force method has typically required less than 20 minutes to determine complicated passwords containing letters, numbers, capitals, and symbols that are 8-10 characters long. :)

CaptainK,

Thank you very much!!

That really looks good! (except the Win.10 exception)

I’m glad I asked the question now… May help a lot of people… :)
