There is no legal way to "craack" a business computer, your IT has to help you recover your Windows. If this is a personal computer, with proof of ownership of both computer and of your windows, a local computer shop may be able to help you at least get your data files onto an external media if not able to legally run password-hunters. Otherwise, it is time to totally reinstall -- and this time keep a written record of usernames and passwords locked in a drawer somewhere.

When a password has been changed the previous password becomes invalid and cannot be used for any purpose. The ability to do what you wish would be a serious security risk.

Forum policy prevents giving help on matters pertaining to cracking passwords as we have no way to confirm you are the legal owner. The advice already given is good advice but it is at the limit of what we can provide
