Re: A Live Mail CLIENT comes in handy!


[re: XRaySpeX] [link to this post]
 
I'd forgotten that it was accessed in Safe Mode. Any point in enabling it in Win 7? I have my own account which has admin credentials and I don't expect I'll forget my password. It's PASSWORD. (Only joking!) On a more serious note, do the User Account passwords ever get corrupted and prevent access?

There is a point of logging into Administrator in Safe Mode and giving it a password, to prevent anyone else logging in unchallenged in Safe Mode.

Assuming you have the computer management GUI (or the net user command line tool), you can change any password without having to be in safe mode.

It's disabled in Win7 and doesn't appear on SafeMode unless you have activated it manually.

Unless your hard drive is encrypted, passwords on Windows machines will only deter the most casual hacker. Boot the PC with a linux disc and you have full read (at least) access to the hard drive without a password in sight!
