windows7 7600 x86

how i got my winmend password back doing the following - and is free!

1st go into disk where folder is hidden and set attributes to show hidden system files – to do this first click tools-folder options-view-and uncheck hide protected operating system files, as well as checking show hidden files, folders, drives

next step

1. download winimage here Gilles Vollant software
2. make image of folder or disk or whatever it is you have hidden – I did this by dragging the Winmend~Folder~Hidden ‘folder’ onto winimage
3. look for the cn folder and open it inside winimage
4. drag .ini file that says password in its name onto desktop
5. open ini file with notepad or any nfo reader etc.
6. voila – there's your password!!!!!!!!
7. email winmend and tell them you don’t need their help, especially for $40.00

go here to download file to see what names and where ini files located

I swear, threads older than a couple months should just be locked automatically.

You just brought a year-old thread back from the dead...and did you notice the OP is banned now?

I know this is an old thread but found it from a google search "logitech G510 volume control not working". I registered and just wanted to thank you for posting how you fixed the volume control. I had the same problem and tried for hours to figure it out but had no luck. Your fix did the trick and everything is working properly now. Thank you boohbah, saved me a lot of headaches and time.

If anybody has lost or forgotten their winmend folder hidden password, then

Visit Downloads abyss computing

It works great. I used it to retrieve mine and it gave me my forgotten password in just seconds. You just have to pay a nominal $2 which they ask just for the maintenance of their website and serve you better.
