A few days ago, I had met the headache things that I had forgotten Windows login password. Fortunately I got to know the PCUnlocker program, which helped me reset Windows password instantly yet no data loss.

re: Windows Password Clues Easy To Crack
So, users out there should be warned - putting your password in clear text in the password hint field is probably a worse idea now than it was two weeks ago.

Password security will always come down to the user, period. If a user does not know how to secure their account properly, via password or other means, their account (and their system, in most instances) will not be safe.

If it weren't for users, secure systems would be easy to create and maintain.
