Lost password makes our life puzzled. So, its always better to remind our password. Password recovery tools are often called the “password cracking” tools as they are sometimes used to “crack” passwords by hackers. Here we are providing the description about top 6 free Windows password recovery programs available. These programs will help you out to recover lost password for any application.

An easy to operate application is Ophcrack. The Ophcrack Windows password cracker is by far the best free Windows password recovery tool that is available up till date. It’s fast and easy enough for a first time password cracker who has a basic knowledge of Windows. With Ophcrack tool, you don’t need any access to Windows to recover your lost passwords. Simply you can visit the site and download the free ISO image then burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. The Ophcrack program starts, then locates the Windows user accounts, and proceeds to recover the passwords.

Another tool to recover password is Offline NT Password & Registry Editor. Offline NT Password & Registry Editor works differently than most of password recovery programs. This program erases your Windows password instead of recovering it and you can simply log in to your account without entering a password. Just like Ophcrack, you need to boot from a burned CD that is created with the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor ISO file. If you like the “password deleting” strategy then we highly recommend this program for you. Offline NT Password & Registry Editor works basically the same way as PC Login Now that is listed below.

PC Login Now is a Free Password Recovery Software. PC Login Now is one of the better free Windows password recovery programs we have tested, even though it doesn’t actually recover passwords. Instead of discovering and displaying your current PC password, PC Login Now deletes it and then allows you to access Windows without a password, after which you can easily create a new one. PC Login Now works just like Offline NT Password & Registry Editor but the only difference is that, it is much easier to use.

“Cain & Abel Password Cracker” is yet another tool to recover your password. It is a free, fast and effective Windows password recovery tool. Unlike Ophcrack and other popular password hacking and cracking programs, Cain & Abel needs access to Windows under an administrator account. Due to this fact, Cain & Abel is a valuable resource to recover passwords of accounts that you’re using. Another tool for password recovery is LCP. Like Cain & Abel, LCP is also a standard Windows program that you need to download from LCPSoft’s website. This program installs on Windows, meaning you will need access to a user account on the computer.

The last tool we are discussing about is “John The Ripper” tool. John the Ripper is a very popular and free password recovery tool that can be used to find your Windows account passwords. This tool can be easily downloaded from internet. Apart from these tools, we can also create a Password Reset Disk that allows you to reset your Windows password before login to user account. A password reset disk is a special kind of disk and you can insert it, in your PC during the logon process. This disk will allow you to reset your Windows password.  All you need is to create this disk before you lose access to your account.

So, we can conclude that with the help of these programs and tools, the password recovery for any application becomes much easier.
