Colour Management and iPhone4

This is an article by our friend and colour guru Mike Adams, self confessed lifelong Mac fan. The original article can be read on Correct Color's website. Our resident Colour "Master" Craig Hudson (who doesn't have an iPhone!) has added some explanatory comments for those not fully grounded in colour management.

photoA locked computer can result in dead end frustration, potentially costing hundreds of dollars in repair bills. Unlocking your computer without the aid of a password reset disk can be done by accessing the default Administrator account from Safe Mode and unlocking your computer via console commands. This can generally be done in minutes.

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Press "F8" as the computer is booting and select "Safe Mode."
  3. Click on the "Administrator" account.
  4. Select "Start" and click "Run."
  5. Type "control userpasswords2" and press "Enter."
  6. Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password" and restart the computer. It will be unlocked.

Last time after locked by my pc, I searched the ways to unlock. At first I don't want to use any tools to help me so I tried safe mode, but unfortunately failed. After comparing and trying I decided to use reset software to unlock. So I chose the popular software in Google, Windows Password Killer, which is really helpful.

You can download For Windows admin password reset I will choose reset software, like Windows Login Recovery with a blank DVD/CD or formatted USB drive to create a reset disk. Then with the reset disk you can insert it in your computer. More details from: http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com

Good post! What if you forgot Windows admin password and have no password reset disk? I have ever come across trouble. At first I didn't know how to unlock computer password until my friend recommended me Windows Password Recovery Tool. It is really helpful! http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com
