One of the most stressful situations you may face when trying to access your personal computer is when you realize you can’t remember your user or administrator password. PassFab 4WinKey offers you a simple solution to unlock your desktop PC or laptop – all you need is a USB or a recordable disk. Then follow three simple steps that will disable the forgotten password and grant you access to your computer.
The reason why you will need a recordable disk or an empty USB drive to make it work is because the program requires a bootable media that your computer’s BIOS Setup Utility can use to start up your PC again and then proceed to unlock the corresponding Windows system. To create that disk, PassFab 4WinKey will download an ISO image with all the information required and will burn a bootable disk or create a bootable USB drive for you to start up your computer.
In an ideal world, we should make use of this program as soon as we start using our new computer and keep the disk or the USB handy as a precautionary measure in case our memory fails. However, all of us tend to turn to a solution like this only once the problem has arisen. In that case, you will need to have access to another computer in order to install and launch the program, download the ISO file, and create the required bootable media.
Once you’ve accessed your locked computer’s BIOS Setup Utility via the bootable media, all you need to do is follow a couple of simple steps to select the blocked Windows system and reset its user or administrator password. Though the program’s website guarantees a 100 per cent recovery rate, the last step of the process envisages the possibility of PassFab 4WinKey not finding your Windows system (and therefore not being able to unlock your computer), offering you the possibility of sending a log file to the developers at the customer service for help.
You can find this tool in four flavors – a Standard version for users without USB, a Professional version for USB users, an Enterprise version to reset domain admin passwords, and an Ultimate version for those who want to make use of all its potential.
