I found many Windows Vista users asking for password recovery methodology. The article below provides the useful trick to recover forgotten Windows Vista password. I have added method to hack Windows Vista user account in my post Hack Windows Vista admin account.
Recovering lost passwords is not a problem new to Windows Vista. Sure, in a manner similar to Windows XP, Vista will enable users to create an adjacent password hint that the user can turn to in case of need. But what about a severe case of amnesia. No password hint will point you in the right direction. Fortunately, Windows Vista has a built in mechanism designed to help with password recovery.
First of though, you should know that if the account with the misplaced password is not the administrator, then recovery is not even a problem.The administrator can simply change the password and allow the user access back to theaccount . This action however is not without its downside. If the administrator performs the said task, then you will not be able to access encrypted files, email messages and personal credentials. This is a trade-off that might be, or might not be worth it, depending on the context and on the information you risk losing.
The Windows Vista password recovery mechanism applies mainly to computers that are not part of a domain. If you have made your way to the User Accounts in Windows Vista Control Panel ，here’s way: Click Start > type “User” in the search box. Then Click User Accounts
then you might have noticed the “Create a password reset disk” option in the top left corner.
The Forgotten Password Wizard will open, then click next.
This is where you select where to store the reset files. If you have a floppy disk drive insert a disk, if not pop in a USB thumb drive and click next.
Type in your current password and click next.
When complete click next.
Now you have your reset disk.
From within a Windows Vista account, a user can create a password reset disk. A user only needs to create a single password reset disk and store it in a secure location. The disk is a preemptive measure that is actually independent of theaccount’s password. Users of the disk will be able to reset the account’s password.
This now be able to overcome their lost Windows Vista passwords. If you know any popular method for recovering Windows Vista passwords, just help out other guys over here by mentioning in comments section.
