Unsurprisingly, my list of Windows password recovery tools is one of the most popular items on my site. Apparently forgetting your password is, in fact, as common as you might have thought.

The latest password recovery tool I've found is a program that's actually been around for quite a while. It's called Offline NT Password & Registry Editor and it's a free tool that resets your Windows password. It works a lot like PC Login Now, a previously-free program (now it's around $40) that also resets your logon password.

Ophcrack seems to be the most popular password recovery tool but if that doesn't work for you, give Offline NT Password & Registry Editor a try. It's a bit harder to work than Ophcrack with but it's certainly worth the effort if haven't found a way in to your PC.
