Active @ Password Changer Pro: all Pros and Cons

Password recovery software

January 9 2015, Milos Milosevic
a reviewer

Active@ Password Changer Professional is an easy to use application that lets you reset user account passwords. It does exactly what it says, maybe even a bit more with its additional features, but the price tag might be too high for some people.

However, you can use it on three home computers so that maybe makes it a bit more attractive and to be honest there aren't many similar solutions on the market. If you or your family member forgets your/his user account password or a disgruntled ex-employee changes the Admin password on the company's computer, this piece of software just might save your day.

One beautiful morning I discovered my computer has been locked, and I cannot log in to the account I've been working for two years.

Important report needed to be submitted by the evening – stayed inside this "black box". Thanx to god, my neighbor heard my yelling and helped me to find you link to Password Changer and Boot Disk.
