Reset Windows Password Description
Reset Windows Password is a straightforward utility that claims to reset and modify passwords of local users and administrators effortlessly.
As its name states, the application is able to reset, change and recover Windows logon passwords lost due to system crashes, virus attacks or unauthorized permissions. You are able to recover or bypass all types of account passwords including Active Directory accounts and domain administrators.
The main window of the utility is carried out in the form of a step-by-step wizard that will guide you through the steps of resetting or recovering your lost passwords.
Select the recovery mode you want such as SAM (that works with regular user accounts) or AD (that is mostly used when you want to recover Active Directory accounts).
As you make the selection, the tasks list shows all the available operations for the current job. This way, you are able to dump password hashes to text files, remove user sensitive information or restore previously modified password or data.
After the first step is completed, you are allowed to choose the user account you want to reset the password for.
Then, you are able to easily enter the new password for the account you selected or set blank password to reset it. However, you need to pay special attention to additional options because Windows will decline the password if the account is locked or disabled.
The utility works with Active Directory as well, so administrators who need to manage, control and track multiple user accounts are able to recover lost passwords within seconds. It also allows you to disable the password expiry option and dump user password hashes from SAM for further analysis.
All in all, Reset Windows Password enables you to unlock user accounts and recover passwords effortlessly, without the need of advanced configurations.
