Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It depends on the OS you are using.

For XP try ERD commander 2003 or 2005
For vista and 7 boot into safe mode and log in with the built in admin account.

    1.Use the built-in administrator account which you can logon without password in safe mode.It was built when you install your system and its password default as blank.Press ctrl+alt+delete twice in the welcome screen and you can see a classical logon dialog box,type administrator and press Enter.Or you can press F8 when you start/restart your computer to select start from safe mode. 2.Use a password reset disk If you have created ever.Of course it must be created for your current password.You can find a prompt when you input a false password in the welcome screen.Clik it and follow the guide. 3.If the two methods above cannot help you,you can find a recovery tool.As far as I know, there are many password tools on the network, but I have used is "Windows password rescuer professional 3.0" ,it is simple and safe that the average person will use it. It can soon reset the password in several minutes.Only four steps can help you reset the lost Windows password: Step 1: Download Windows Password Rescuer and install it to another computer. Step 2: Run it and burn it to a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.Before this confirm that you have insert a CD/DVD or USB. Step 3: BIOS setting:Setup your own computer boot from CD or USB.Press F2 or DELETE when you start/restart your PC to get into the BIOS SETUP list.Use arrow keys to select boot manu,and use +/- key to move the CD/DVD or USB option to the first site.Then inset the CD/DVD or USB you have just created. Press F10 to save and exit. Step 4: Reset Windows password: Wait for a moment,it will display friendly operate window,and you can reset whichever password on it.More detailed instruction refer to this article:http://www.daossoft.com/documents/how-to-reset-window-2000-xp-vista-win7-password.html

    Know your ideas, friend. You will remove your laptop password easily. Because I have met such Toshiba password problem before, and had the same idea as you. As I remembered, I used Windows Password Recovery Basic to help me remove my Toshiba windows password quickly finally. The article on Toshiba password reset would also help you: http://www.windowspasswordrecovery.net/article/toshiba-password-reset.html

    Trinity Rescue Kit does a phenomenal job (and does a lot more, if you ever need it to).

    If a drive has had files deleted from it, TrashBin emptied and an OS reinstall, or if a drive has been formatted, anyone attempting to recover files from that drive is probably not doing it for a good reason. -- Tom
