yup

Windows xp is the one I know of how to do it, I don't know about vista and really don't wanna know considering Vista to me is a big Joke played on us before april fools, before windows boot press and hold F12, I think, can't remember either way it will bring up a screen asking what mode you want to boot into, select safe mode and you can change the password to whatever you want Blum
Now stop Hijacking my thread your encouraging me too much on the techs of Winxp

OPHCrack

"The ophcrack LiveCD contains a small linux system (SLAX6), ophcrack for linux and rainbow tables for alphanumerical passwords.

The liveCD cracks passwords automatically, no installation necessary, no admin password necessary (as long as you can boot from CD).

Windows Vista SAM can also be cracked."

What do I want for new

What do I want for new years? A raise- and this is nice.

Sorry if i'm wrong but i'm

Sorry if i'm wrong but i'm fairly sure you have to hold the F8 key.
And if i'm not mistaking you can't really "reset" the password but you can only delete the account. I could be wrong though.

Happy New Year to everyone btw! Smile

Both of you are right.

It depends on what computer you are using. Some computers use the delete key, some the F#'s and some even use letter combos. And yes Pieter you can delete the user but you can also change the password by typing
C:blah/blah/blah>net user [user name here] *
Password:
Retype Password:

How's that? The net command

How's that? The net command has been around forever.

Do:

"net /?"
"net user /?"

Well...

I'm trying to keep myself from starting to hate John for not releasing the new menu. Smile
Besides that, I'd like to improve my grades at University...but unfortunately PortableApping is much more fun than Inorganic chemistry and Matrix multiplication...

well...

I'm studying Environmental Engineering.
But the first and second year are filled with scientific basics like math, chemistry and physics so its rather boring stuff right now.

Wait,

did, you just call maths boring, how could you Wink I would have to agree about matrices though, the only thing I have ever done with them was to teach myself how to invert them (long story) and that was hardly a laugh a minute!

yeah

inverting them is quite something. but things like Determinants are even worse Smile
And you're right, math isn't boring, Inorganic Chemistry is worse! :lol:
I just hope&know that things get better when I'm through with the "boring basics"...

OT

Well, this got off-topic REALLY fast. Blum
I don't really have any new years resolutions, I'll just continue doing what I do and try to be better at it. (BTW, what I do is LEARN, I try to learn as much as I can about anything.)

Although, if I put more thought into it, I would like to start up something in my city (Ciudad Juarez, Mexico - across the river from El Paso, Texas, USA) to help those who are "technologically handicapped". What I'm thinking of is accepting old, beat-up computers, tweak with them a bit, make sure they're running ok, installing linux and giving them to those in need. Any comments that could help me get started will really be appreciated.

One Laptop

One Laptop per child is making super-high tech (enviromental) laptops for children in developing countries. You can get your own by donating 400 bucks. It's here.

Yeah, I know but

with OLPC I have 3 options: I pay for the laptops (which I can't do), I convince others to buy those laptops and donate them or I convince my local/state/federal government to buy them and give them to the needy. either way it's pricey. That's why I'm wanting what others don't want anymore. This way nobody needs to pay any money. Also, for those of you who want to help promote Open Source Software, check out The Freedom Toaster. It's another thing I would like to do.

Point taken. But you might

Point taken. But you might as well sell the pc parts you get and donate them, or maybe make them something amazing and get money to donate from that. Computers get outdated very easily.

Great Idea!

I think it is a great idea. I offer "Free Computer Recycling" in my area. People bring me their old PCs, or I pick them up. Anything that can not be reused gets taken to a proper recycling center (for electronics). Anything that can be reused goes into rebuilt PCs for others. I encourage you to keep thinking like that. Wink

BTW - The "Freedom Toaster" is awesome!
