Editors' Review

+

Windows Password Key can recover your Windows passwords when all else fails. It burns a password key on a CD that can reset administrator and user passwords in Windows XP to 8.1, including most Server editions. It accepts FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and NTFS5 file systems and SATA, IDE, SCSI, and SAS drives.

Pros

Affordable: Compared to the time and expense of professional service or the aggravation of trying to reset passwords yourself, Windows Password Key might be the least painful alternative.

Easy to use: A well-illustrated Help file makes Windows Password Key easy to understand and use.

Cons

No USB: The Standard version of Windows Password Key only creates password recovery CDs, which is a problem if a PC or laptop lacks an optical drive. To create a password recovery USB Flash drive, you must upgrade to Windows Password Key Professional.

BIOS changes: You may need to make changes to your PC's BIOS to boot from a password recovery disk, which is another level of complexity entirely.

Bottom Line

Windows Password Key is affordable and easy to use. We wish it accepted USB drives, but it's a good place to start when you need to reset your Windows passwords.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Windows Password Key 8.5.

"did not work"

April 07, 2015  |  By char0825

 |  Version: Windows Password Key Standard 9.6

Pros

none that i can find

Cons

I downloaded the program to find that it would not work unless you paid for it, so I did. After paying for the standard version I found out that if I wanted to use a USB I had to pay even more. Ridiculous. I used a CD instead. Installed it on the laptop that needed to have the password reset. Ran the program and it told me that the password was successfully reset. When I then rebooted as told to, the pc just keeps putting in a hidden password, which does not work. So I still cannot access this laptop. Waste of money.

Summary

Don't waste your time or money.

"Buyer beware"

April 07, 2015  |  By Elizabeth Fortier

 |  Version: Windows Password Key Standard 9.6

Pros

None none none

Cons

After you have paid for it, then it tells you if you want to boot up from a USB device you will have to pay more money. EXCUSE ME....that's c**p. Regardless, luckily I had the capability to burn the program onto a CD. Only problem is, there is absolutely no way to change the BIOS settings so that I boot up from a CD, so I never got the chance to see if this program works. I emailed the company and told them about the problem, but they never emailed me back. So, I just wasted $21 of my hard earned money.

Summary

Don't support this company. Try something else!
