Have you ever forgotten you windows password or has a friend changed it without you knowing? Here’s where kon boot comes in handy. Kon boot allows you to bypass any password-protected windows operating system. Go to the kon boot website and download the free version of it (PASSWORD : “kon-boot”). Extract the files and look for the CD iso image. We’re going to burn this to a CD. But being such a small sized file some CD burners won’t detect it. I used ImgBurn to do the job. Insert a blank CD and select “write image file to disc” then select the iso image just downloaded and make sure to choose the lowest burning speed otherwise it may not detect it. Once this done you can insert the cd in the computer you need to bypass. I’ll be using windows xp in a virtual machine, but on a physical machine you need to change the booting order in the BIOS interface when you turn on your computer Usually by pressing F2, F12 or delete at the starting of the computer you should enter the boot menu. Choose the CD-rom to boot in first place then save these settings and quit. Reboot if you have to. Kon boot will now be loading, modifying the system kernel so it can bypass the authentication process.
You’ll now have access to any account without having to type the password leaving no trace whatsoever. Note that changes are only temporary and they are reset after rebooting so by using this method you won’t be able to change the password.
