The Windows password is the key to your success. You use the same password every time you log into Windows. It is a virtual lock on your computer, preventing any unauthorized person from logging into your computer. To protect this password, Windows requires a type of security or lock set with the password before it lets you use it. Windows also stores a copy of the password in a chip inside your PC, known as the hardware password.
The Office Key and Emotic Key are still stored in your PC and are very hard to steal. Unfortunately the Office keyboard is no longer on the original computer, so anyone who steals your keyboard will still be able to use the Windows password on your system. Fortunately there are some very easy steps that you can take to protect your password and unlock your computer. The first thing you should do is backup your entire Windows password database (the one that stores the secret keys) to an external flash drive or CD. Once you have done this, download a free or commercial registry cleaner software and put it on a flash drive or CD.
The next step is to load up the registry cleaner software and run it. It will scan your computer for all the critical office keys on your hard drive. It should identify all missing files and then fix any problems it finds. Finally, it should restart your computer and automatically remove the boot entry for your specialized Windows keys. If you're successful in your removal of the special keys, your customized Windows keys will be effectively uninstalled from your computer and all the passwords will be reset.
