You could download Ubuntu Live to a CD or USB on another computer. Then you boot your computer with the CD/USB, which gives you access to everything on the harddrive (if it is not encrypted). You could then copy your files to another CD or USB.

A long shot but might just work, try a windows password recovery tool. May get lucky? Ophcrack is pretty good.

That's for BIOS passwords, not OS (Windows or other) ones wink.gif

Try this

How to Change User Password at Command Prompt

Try and get into safe mode to change the password.

For example if you get confused.

Go to Start, All Progammes and Accessories, Command prompt will be there. a blank screen will appear. Type in Net user and the info will display as below.

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright © 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Sarah-Jane>net user

User accounts for \\SARAH-JANE-PC

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Administrator Guest Sarah-Jane
The command completed successfully.

This will now give you the info you need to go ahead to change the password.

So type in net user (what your user name is Examle if it has andrew as your user name) and then the password you wish to change to) Sarah-Jane and password as your password

C:\Users\Sarah-Jane>net user sarah-jane password

Then reboot your computer and go start into the normal mood to display the password. Try in the new password "password" and you have access.

Im sorry if this doesnt work out its the best i can come up with.

Let me know!

Regards S-J

OK so this is an old themes resurrected presumably by a pill-peddler.

But the big laugh here is that all those giving advice refer to web-sites for the solution.

If you read the OP he can't even get into his computer. So how in hell can he do anything unless he has another computer beside him?
It just shows, though, how you either have to have a damned good memory and can relate to your password, or you must have a USB stick with one of the recovery programmes on it already prepared, and can access the start-up menu so that the computer can boot from the USB.

Then - this can apply to whomsoever - choose a password that is perhaps a part of your everyday life, but something known only to you - such that it is a 'part of you' and simply cannot be forgotten nor traced to you.

It is not a difficult thing to do - and will save a lot of heartache in the future.

Oh blast!! What was my password now??? Oh yes - Llanfairpwyllgwyngyllgogerichwyrndrobwllantisiliogogogoch - or was it?

Just call up your internet provider, like Comcast, snd tell it that you want to change your browser into what you want now.
