Once downloaded, please burn the ISO image to a CD/DVD disc, as follows:
After burning, bootup your system using the disc; the recovery tool, PC Login Now, will start automatically.
To delete your existing Windows password, follow the instructions on-screen accordingly. Choose your OS installation and then the user name for which you want the password XXXXX be deleted. Be sure to check the password XXXXX XXXXX checkbox after choosing your username; this will remove the password.
Now, you'll be prompted if you want to reset another user's password; choose No and then OK to reboot. Remove the disc as soon as the computer reboots, and load up your OS as you do normally, and see if you can login to your account now.
Let me know, how it goes.
i have downloaded the free unlock file onto a "key" ,, but don't know what to do next?
when I try to download the 2nd step (burn prog), I get a "buy" program only.
it is done, but did not set up an icon on desktop for running. Go to "programs" and find it?
sorry, i am having problems with my wife's computer. NOW, I cannot get the "burn" program to format my blank re-writable disc so I can record the ISO program. I erased the DVD in another computer, but it says that it is "unreadable".
sorry, nothing seems to be right for me. Can I get back to after abt. 10:15am Eastern Daylight time. I think I need tostart over using my laptop (it's on Vista). Thanks.
i don't know what that means (how to do it). I can do nothing on my computer ... the disc is in the drive, but I get the "login" screen and cannot do anything else.
i hit 2 "next" .. got a message: "you haven't select a windows you want to deal .."
(the little box is in the upper left part of the screen and all I can see is the "prev . next .. exit" ..
i do not see "choose your OS ....." all i have is the little white box in the upper left corner,, an black screen all the balance of screen (the box has the "prev/nxt/exit" ONLY)
cannot press "prev" .. when I press exit, it says "do you want to exit PC Login and reboot computer now?"
not on the second try,, I will go back, shut down, then choose f12 .. and get back to you.
it tried to run the DVD, but nothing happens. It says "Selected boot device not available" .. meaning the no. 2 disc that i copied and have in the drive . I guess.
Here is my no. 1 and no. 2 Discs:
order to try and reset your password:http://nchc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/pcloginnow/PCLoginNow_Full_2.0.iso
OK, we still have the screen "BOOT DEVICE MENU",, with 'ONBOARD OR USB CD-ROM DRIVE" highlighted.
ok, "burning the kernel" (whatever) .. and it's doing a LOT more line flashes (checking, etc).
the "exit" action says "Do you want to exit PC login now and reboot computer now?"
NEXT says, "You haven't select a windows you want to deal ... "
I guess you must be missing something. Can you get me photos of both the screens?
i do not know how to take "photos" of the screens.
looks like we are not getting anywhere .. should we simply start at the very beginning again?
I guess you have not properly made the disc or the computer have other problem(s). The screen should look like this: http://www.pcloginnow.com/loginnow_guide.html
This is the full guide.
I don't know .. obviously, something is not workng right. The screen that I get is only about 1/4 of the "guide" sceen (and it's in the upper left corner).
I will go back and make another disc ... just no.1 . and try all of this again. I hope that I can get somewhere... Otherwise, I will just take the compunter in to BEST BUY and have them get rid of the old password XXXXX me.
I have retried the downloads and cannot get anything any different than we got earlier today.
ls there anything else / any way else that you can help me with? As you know we spent hours on this today .. neither of us have time to waste IF we cannot get it fixed.
Is there someone else who might have a different approach?
If not, I assume that I will go to the Geek Squad at Best Buy tomorrow and they will do it ... they said they could, at any rate.
Since the problem was not solved after due dillgence, I assume that there will be no charge from "Just Ask." ???
