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.
