My 'favourites' have been deleted. They're not hiding, as i've tried going into the folder to see if they're still there.. i want them back!
I've messed up my pc and was trying to restore it to a previous date. To do this, windows asks for my password- have tried, admin, admin1, passord, left it blank etc- but to no avail. A few years ago sommat embedded itself in the pc (not literally) some kinda trojan i think, and whatever it was wouldn't let me bring up my task manager (all greyed out) im sure that thingie has changed my password too. pretty certain the p/word was admin.
There was a thread on here gawd know when where someone had kindly mentioned a program (don't install it- it was just readily accessible) which could be used to recover lost/forgotten passwords--- you typed in sommat on the pc, and up came a 'pop up' with the password in it. tried searching, but the search engine on here leaves a lot to be desired.
Anyone recall what it was- the program?
Unless anyone has bright ideas as to how i can recover my faves w/out needing the windows password. many thanks in advance
