Moscow, Russia, 2007/02/12 - Elcomsoft has released the new version of Elcomsoft System Recovery, a boot-disk application that makes it easy to access your computer's Windows password settings, now with Vista support.
If you're locked out of your computer, Elcomsoft System Recovery will give you access and let you troubleshoot problems that are preventing you from running Windows. Elcomsoft System Recovery now supports Windows Vista, engineered to be the most secure version of Windows yet.
Windows Vista contains a number of new security features that, taken together, are designed to make Windows Vista-based PCs more secure. User Account Control in Windows Vista improves the safety and security of your computer by giving you the ability to decide if certain potentially dangerous software is allowed to make changes to your computer. However, on the ground of security concerns User Account Control deprives regular users of some privileges in favor of administrator and this complicates the situation when your password is lost. But even under these circumstances Elcomsoft System Recovery lets you look up account privileges, detect accounts with empty passwords, and assign Administrator privileges to any user account. It's easy to enable or unlock accounts that have been disabled or locked. Besides, it is easy to dump password hashes from Windows system files, and write them to a text file for further analysis and password recovery. You can get a list of all local user accounts and their properties, including Administrator accounts. It's simple to reset and change the passwords of any of these local accounts.
Under a special agreement with Microsoft, Elcomsoft System Recovery is based upon Microsoft Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE), a hardware-independent minimal Windows system that replaces the antique DOS boot disk that was used to set up new computer systems.
Elcomsoft System Recovery is completely self-contained, allowing you to access each of your computers without the need for third-party or proprietary software. Now you can troubleshoot all of your computers with a single, easy-to-use program. Simply insert the CD, and boot your computer. If you don't have a CD or DVD drive, you can set Elcomsoft System Recovery to boot from a USB Flash Drive.
The program supports Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003/Vista. With full Unicode compliance, Elcomsoft System Recovery supports all US and non-US versions of Windows, with multilingual user names and passwords. The program detects which version of Windows you're using, and gives you access to your Registry files. Elcomsoft System Recovery is completely compatible with all PC hardware, including RAID and SCSI devices.
Elcomsoft System Recovery costs $299(US) for a single-user license, includes express delivery worldwide, and comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. An Enterprise edition, with full support for Active Directory on the network, will be available later this year.
