Have you ever lost a password to a Windows computer and just wish you had a way to get into the computer? There is a simple solution with KonBoot
KonBoot modifies the Windows Kernel in real time, thus allowing you to get past the login prompt when you start Windows. You can download KonBoot to either a floppy or burn it on to a CD-Rom. You insert either media into the computer and restart. When the computer restarts, KonBoot starts and launches Windows. When you are back to the login prompt again you can press enter to by pass the prompt. KonBoot will not allow you to change the password of the user, but you could create another account that has the ability to later change that password.
Remember, that this should only be used on computers in which you have permission to use the tool on or that you own. If you were to try this with any other computer, it is illegal and you could be put into jail. So use it at work on that computer of the employee who was just fired, or on one of the computers that your company is required to keep due to legal issues and nobody knows the password for. Try it out on your own computer just to see how it works, that way if you run into an time you need to use it at work you know how the program works. Even use it to help your friend who keeps forgetting his password and has to call you to recover it. Don’t use it at your work if you don’t have permission to use it, or at school/college where you can get into a lot of trouble. Remember the saying from Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility.”. With this is a powerful tool, which you have to use with responsibility.
