Lost password on user account. (ophcrack/TRK)
So, I decided to create a thread here in case any of you know what to do.
I've checked several internet pages, but my problem seems to persist.
I just got my desktop Windows 7 Home Premium back after a year from where it was stored, but I have forgotten my password completely.
I have tried several options of password retrieval/removal:
- Ophcrack (CD/DVD)
- TRK (Trinity Rescue Kit) (CD/DVD)
Ophcrack had an issue with not being able to find the tables, displaying the message "no drivers found", no matter what I try to click on that might help me in my case.
TRK also encounters a problem, where it says:
"Trying to find TRK on your 0 CD-drive(s)
TRK not found on CD, Checking harddisks & USB sticks (sleep 5 secs let them settle in)
SCSI: 0:0:0: CDROM TSSTCORP CDDVD SH-S202J SB02 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 SR 0:0:0:
Attached SCSI generic Sg0 type 5 cat:/etc/trkhd: No such file or directory
Seems we didn't find anything yet. Trying CD-drives once more. Try to find TRK on your 1 cd-drive(s)
Seems we didn't find the TRK medium
Manually enter the device on which TRK can be found (e.g. 'sda1'):
If I enter sda1, it just tells me that something is wrong/could not load/no such file in directory.
Any idea on what to do instead/do to fix it? I want to try to avoid having to reinstall my whole computer, and I appreciate to have the answer as easy as possible, because I'm not that much of a computer-person.
