    If you use a download manager, they can all be downloaded as a "batch", using a direct copy/ paste operation from this post. E.g. with Free Download Manager use File -> Import -> Import List of URLs from Clipboard (or just Ctrl + V).

    Total of file sizes is 21MB. I wonder what it will become now that MS has hold of them?
    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> Or is the conversion as easy as simply changing the MB to GB? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    Didn't there use to be one that allowed you to access a password protected account when you forgot your password? If it's in your list, which one is it?

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    The only thing that comes to mind is Protected Storage PassView v1.63: Recover Protected Storage passwords by Nirsoft (28KB). Is this the one?

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15> I thought there was a password revealer utility included in WinInternals??? Of course, thinking about this, that would be something that could be used by miscreants to gain access to anyone's PC. So, it most likely is a figment of my aging imagination.

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    I'd say you're right, since some malware detectors will flag the Nirsoft one I mentioned as a security risk. Handy to have on a floppy, all the same. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe that SIW also has a password "revealer" feature named, "Secrets" found under the "Software" item on the Menubar. It displays all the passwords you have for websites, forums, etc., as well as many S/N for Windows and Office, etc.

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    Jeff,

    Password unmask v2.1.0 link is what you were looking for. Free software download to "View" passwords hidden in fields with "*". Per ad:

    "Features:
    * Password Recovery software reset Windows 98 ME NT 2000 XP 2003 administrator password reveal lost or forgotten Microsoft Office XP Office 2003 Word Excel Power Point Access Outlook, VBA project Password.
    * Software reveal email account password by only dragging the mouse over password field.
    * Software retrieve archives ZIP WINZIP RAR ARJ ACE PDF files password."


    HOWEVER ...

    The actual download link is no longer active and the domain name for the software DataDoctor.Biz no longer works (although a DataDoctor.Biz WhoIs.biz Search shows the domain name is paid through 2011.

    If you goto Password unmask v2.1.0 link and look at the bottom, there are references to other programs (Freeware, Shareware, and Paid) that may come in handy. I will make another post for a couple of other links I found - I just can not guarantee there authenticity.

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    Jeff,

    Here are a few of other links for you to try:
    LoginRecovery.Com - Free for "Low" priority recovery which can take 1-2 days. "High" Priority for a nominal fee for immediate recovery. NOTE: This requires loading data to a remote server for processing - a security risk in my opinion.

    Easy Password Recovery is free to try. Purchase ~$15.00.

    Daniel Petri's - Forgot the Administrator's Password ? - an interesting article with 5 freeware references. NOTE:These are to reset the passwords - NOT reveal them.

    PC Beginner Utilities Suite 2006 - Includes:
    <UL><LI>Reset Windows XP/2K/NT/Server Admin/User password
    <LI>Find/Remove "Power on password" and "Supervisor password"[/list]ELCOMSOFT Proactive Software provides commercial applications with a 30 day free trial.

    Passware, Inc (aka LostPassword.Com) - Extremely good but EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE ! ! !

    FYI: Winteral DID have a free program called

    ERD with LockSmith - no longer active. If you goto Administrator's Pak 5.0 and ERD Commander 2005 you find the software is alive and well. You just need to pay Microsoft (er Winternals.Com) for a license.

    I'm sure you can find other and numerous references via Google search for password recovery or password reveal.

    The above references "clipped" from a tip and tricks file I have. Most of the above references were the result of a IT friend who researched the subject to recover passworsd from several machines "locked" by a formal employee before that employee .... ( fill in the blank here ).

    Hope this helps !
    Scott

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    I think you're not mistaken. Hadn't noticed that feature. It seems to list different entries from the Nirsoft one, so maybe the two will complement each other.

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    Password utility from Winternals? That is probably correct, but Alan listed the free utilities from Sysinternals.

    I think you are thinking about the "ERD Commander" et al from Winternals Software, the ones that Best Buy / Geek Squad were accused for using pirated / unlicensed.

    The PSP from Nirsoft, or SIW et al can be useful but has nothing to do with Windows log on password.

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    Hi Scott

    Using your links, I was just able to download Password Unmask from the download link at the url you posted and also am able to get on DataDoctor.biz.

    However, Password Unmask, as far as I can tell, will only reveal passwords hidden by asterisks. This severely limits its usefulness and it will not do some of the "Features" listed in your post as the password entry windows are blank in some of the programs.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Re: MS buys Winternals...

    Ken,

    You are correct. Again, I am NOT looking for a password "revealer". I already have two means of doing that, 1) SIW has another feature named, "Eureka" that does this and I also have 2) "SnadBoy's Revelation2".

    My interest is due to the fact that there are some PC's in the office I maintain that have been donated from a couple of corporations. Some of these PC's came "as is", i.e., they are password protected. Thus being able to "unlock" the drive would save me the hassle of having to format them and reinstall everything. <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23>
