If you have a problem with installation of ANY giveawayoftheday setup just run your system in a "safe mode" with Internet connection. Some antivirus and antimalware applications are blocking giveawayoftheday setups because of the setup "wrapper".

My daughter has an old PC using Windows XP for which she forgot the password. I promised to look into it but never had the chance to do it for two years now. Today, I saw this software , and I thought may be this is the right time. So I wanted to test how the software performs.
First I installed it on a window 10 machine. The installation went smoothly for me and I did not experience any problems as reported in some of the comments.
I run the software and registered it with no problem and created the boot up CD as directed by the software.
I did not want to test this software directly on my daughter's PC for fear to screw up the data in case something goes wrong. So I decided to test it on a different PC. Since I use Acronis True Image to back up my PC's and clone some of the hard disks, I decided to test it on a Windows 7 machine. I swapped the current hard drive for its two month old clone.
I knew the password of the clone, so I booted the machine and logged on with my normal password to make sure the clone is working.
I logged on to the machine, the clone was in working condition, then I shut down the system, .
Now I decided to boot the same machine using the Tipard CD I created.
I was able to log in to the machine with no password as the password was removed.

In my case, Malwarebytes had nothing to do with that, but my antivirus (Avast) did!
So, as others have already suggested, disable your antivirus for a few minutes/seconds, until the installation starts, and then immediately re-enable it.

Cheers,

The install of the software went fine: no trouble at all in Win10-Pro x64.
Also the registration went fine.
Working with a USB not: I did not read the text on the site.
After burning a CD, I did boot from CD and could not select a Windows:

With another Boot-CD from a different software-maker I could choose from the 3 Windows installed:

Software like this can be destructive to all previous settings, desktop icons, users setups and some previously installed software will not work. The best solution for lost passwords is to have a USB boot drive where all of the passwords are encrypted and to run it and recover it prior booting into windows.
That is the right way to solve such password problems. This software wipes out previous passwords for all and resets windows to no protection level after using it.
You may have to roll back to a previous backup point to make your windows software works properly. To many things can go wrong with this software.

Reseting windows passwords is not a new procedure I have had one for decades that is free but may not work on latest controller hardware because it is MS-DOS based with an old NTFS driver as well as a comercial version from a decade ago and just recently we had a very good program by lazesoft that built a wide variation of WinPE types with selectable base versions and 32bit or 64bit win version vista,7,8 or 10 data recovery, and windows password recovery and significant windows functionality built into the produced bootable USB/CD/DVD/ISO... plus other stuff that I was able to add-hack a bunch of portable tools and programs into!

https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/lazesoft-recovery-suite-pro-4-2/

BUT please note that IF you force reset a windows login password you will effectively destroy the windows protected store database as the key used to encrypt/decrypt the store is derived from the account login password so you should need to re-enter saved keys and passwords stored in the database.

Someone please tell Google reCAPTCHA dresses are not SKIRTS!

TK,

"IF you force reset a windows login password you will effectively destroy the windows protected store database"

I am afraid I don't fully understand the consequences of this action. It sounds scary so I best avoid it. I don't have a need to reset the password but I would like to know what it is. I do not have administrative privilege on my computer at work. This means that I am asked for a password to perform simple tasks such as deleting desktop icons or setting up keyboard shortcuts. All I want is to learn the password so I can gain a little more control over the computer I use. Can this progran do this for me?

Reply   |   Comment by dadams  –  9 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

dadams, my advice is DO NOT under any circumstances use this to remove the admin account password so you can do something you want to do that policy or the IT team do not permit and will not do for you, at best it will result in disciplinary action or at worst instant dismissal and potential criminal charges under the computer misuse act here in the UK!

No simple program will reveal an accounts login password. It is stored internally only as a non-reversible hash code. There have been projects that use rainbow attacks where selected dictionary passwords are hashed using the same algorithim that windows NT uses and generate DVD's full of hash to password tables but it really is impractical to provide comprehensive rainbow files and likely very expensive to procure, again highly illegal to use to gain unathorised levels of access to a computer you do not own. That is assuming modern versions of windows NT are still vulnerable to this attack vector.

Password removal is a last resort, trying to guess a windows password too many times will result in windows locking out the account so even if you subsiqently stumble on the right password you will not find out. If you do lock out the admin account the IT admin team will find out the next time they try to login and are denied access and then require physical access to the computer to unlock the admin account to allow them to log in again. If they still cannot login that would mean the account password was changed or removed and that would result in investigations and disciplinary action in most companies that take computer security seriously.

[ @TK ], you write "... IF you force reset a windows login password you will effectively destroy the windows protected store database ..."

Buy you don't say why we'd care ( especially if our goal in removing a password is to gain access to documents ).

Could you tell us what the "... windows store database ..." is and why and when we would care?

A simple Google search for [ fix corrupt windows store database ] said to run ...

sfc /scannow

... to fix it.

Is that all?

Thanks.

Peter Blaise, I could but from your missquoting I doubt it will help but I did mention some of the things that get stored in the "windows protected store" email client login credentials in certain email programs, certain web browsers saved login credentials. SFC /SCANNOW will not revive or decrypt the encrypted contents lost if a winlogin password is removed by force like this and other similar offline tools do.

2. Copy software from the CD/DVD to a bootable USB

Bingo! - how hard is that?

Every day someone comment that the Giveaway hasn't been installed but the installer reports success.
This is because the antivirus/malware installed on the computer and the Giveaway wrapper aren't playing nicely together.
Much as it is non-intuitive to do so, temporary disable your antivirus will enable successful installation of the giveaway.

Downloaded, installed and registered without a hitch. Burned CD but it will be a while before I try to use it. It is disappointing that this version doesn't allow creation of a bootable flash drive: why even give this as an option if it isn't available?

Hi Mike and NYB, when you run the installers here I have found that often AVG will not allow the install to run correctly and only the GOTD Registration completes successfully. I am sure some other AV tools seem to do the same. I have not tested this particular installer as it's not something I am after, but for other giveaways I disable AVG during the install and it works fine. This might be the issue you having with the install.

Sorry, but this software seems to be misrepresented. According to THEIR website, this STANDARD version CANNOT burn a USB drive. FURTHER, all of the editions limit the number of times the software can be used! i.e., this STANDARD version can make 5 CDs, then it's done. How is that "lifetime?" Pass. (Plus, the ONE time I did have a problem with my Administrator password, I discovered a number of YouTube videos that show how to bypass and reset it manually.)

Reply   |   Comment by EB Sloan  –  10 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+29)

EB Sloan, technically the software that would be paid for is the software that resets the password, not burns to a CD/DVD writable disc. I suspect you'll find that burned bootable CD/DVD can be used indefinitly i.e. lifetime of the media x 5 as the number of discs you can reburn... nothing is stopping you using disc duplication software too! Also the vendor description above does NOT mention creating a bootable USB stick with this or any edition at all!

Installation went smoothly, I didn't get any additional crapware/PUPs along with the installer which was nice. Didn't even have to copy/paste they key as it was already filled in.

- After installation/activation the software opens a bunch of web pages without asking you, to inform you of what you've just done. "Thank you for installing Windows Password Reset" thank you for opening pages that I don't care about, informing me of the most obvious things, in poor English.
- "Register Succeed!" yes, I know - that's what the dialogue box said, too. Which reminds me of the infamous "You're winner!"
- And another page offering you apparently $600 worth of software for just $70.

Overall, the user interface looks modern, but its contents ruin it somewhat. I'm talking about the Google-translate-like English in some places. What's nice however is that it doesn't seem to have annoying advertisements for their other products within the program.

Those are just my first impressions, for now. Also I would like to suggest a free alternative that I've used in the past and had no trouble with: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

Janusz,
I have the same problem, but no Anti-Malware.
Just standard antivirus - and I don´t think that it is a good habit to switch off antivirus always when you are going to install some software from unknown company...
This sw is not needed now (and let´s hope that i shell never need it), so I dont bother with installation issues.
But thanks GOTD for something different from the usual sw bunch.

mtl, I remember times when I had no problems with giveawayoftheday setups. Suddenly the problems start with each and every one of them. I guess they must have changed their setup "wrapper" which is recognized by many antivirus applications as a possible threat. Perhaps you may run your system in a "safe mode" with Internet connection and then try to install giveawayoftheday software.

[ @Henry], you write, "... no Anti-Malware. Just standard antivirus ..."

There's no such thing as "... standard antivirus ..." ( like you drive a "standard" car ).

Without specifics, such as ...

Microsoft Windows Defender
v4.9.10586.672
(th2_release_sec.161024-1825)

... no one can help you, because we can't identify if your situation matched ours, so we have no idea if our resolution will help you.

Do you have more details?

Peter Blaise,

AVAST 17.5.2302 ...

"Standard" I understand antivirus, not some malware detector or firewall. A car, not motorbike or lorry - handling of majority of the cars is pretty similar...
Thanks for the offer of help - I do net need it now (install time is just over), but maybe for the future it would be fine to know the solution in advance. Or better: not need it (because setup procedures should be flawless even for the people using antivirus or malware protection).
