    How can I get around having to sign into my account (Windows Vista 7) during startup as I forgat my password?

    Hello Bob Zientak,.

    If a password is required to log on your system, then you won't be able to cirumvent it. Unfortunately the users of this forum are also not allowed to suggest ways to help you bypass (hack) the password (3668Microsoft Terms and Conditions).

    Remember passwords are case sensitive so maybe that you type a password in the case of bad? Did you create a password recovery disk when you created your password first? If Yes, then you must insert the password recovery disk to allow you to change the current password. If you did not create a password recovery disk then the next and more radical, opion is to re - install Windows.

    This forum post is my own opinion and does not necessarily reflect the opinion or the opinion of Microsoft, its employees or other MVPS.

  • restoration of old files after the clean installation of Vista Windows__

    How can I restore old files after you perform a clean installation of Windows Vista

    If you have an installation clean back to factory settings, you normally wiped your hard drive clean during the process.

    You can try this program:

    Recuva is a file undeletion tool that allows you to analyze your hard drives or media cards for files that have been deleted or formatted. It presents you a list of files that have been found, as well as an assessment of their potential for recovery, a preview option, and a hex viewer to inspect the content. You can limit your search to files of a certain type (e.g. images, audio etc.) and choose between a quick and a thorough analysis approach. The program also includes a secure deletion option that allows you to permanently delete files that were found while parsing, to avoid any future recoveries.


    Find a windows.old folder, because we don't know exactly how you have installed.

  • How can I restore my old profile data for the reinstalled firefox

    had a problem with the opening of firefox and he suggested that I install a new version, I did and I have an "old data firefox" file. My question is how can I reinstall the old file and all the stuff that's about it.

    A 'Old Firefox Data' folder on the desktop is created when you reset Firefox.

    You should be able to copy the data selected from this folder to the current Firefox profile folder.

    For bookmarks that you would need to file places.sqlite or possibly restore bookmarks from a JSON backup in the folder bookmarkbackups.

    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

  • Backup restore my files back after I reinstall my windows?

    Two points:

    1. make sure backup you on external media, not inside your hard
    drive. If you put the backup on your hard drive, reinstalling Windows
    will be their undoing. You can use CDs, DVD, thumb drives, or a
    External hard drive.

    2. you can use the Windows backup program to perform the backup, then
    use the same program to restore the backup files. Or you can use a
    third-party backup program; Again, use the same program to restore. If
    you do not have a lot of backup, you can even just copy the files to
    something like a USB drive or burn the CD or DVD, and then copy
    their return.
