One of the drawbacks of regularly changing your computer passwords is that you run the risk of forgetting a crucial password, thereby locking yourself out of important programs or even the PC itself. Austrumi is a bootable Linux-based program that allows you to look at and modify passwords on your PC. You can use Austrumi to recover and reset forgotten passwords.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Insert the Austrumi disk into your PC. Reboot your computer.

  2. 2

    Type "nt-pass" (without the quotes) when the command prompt appears. This will launch a console utility that detects Windows partitions on the hard disk and brings up a menu to modify the passwords on the system.

  3. 3

    Enter the new password over the old password in the menu. Apply the changes and restart your computer. Enter your new password when prompted.
