Labels: , , ,

In this tutorial, I will teach you how to bypass the Windows Password Login Screen using KON-Boot.It helps in bypassing the default windows password protection and upon reboot, it leaves no trace. The password isn't changed nor any system settings, it will be just bypass the login screen and deletes all the its temporary files after reboot. At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to log into password protected Windows OS (Tested on: Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1).





What is KON Boot?


Kon-Boot  is an application that modifies the contents of the Windows kernel on the fly / at boot time, bypassing the authorization system and allowing Windows to enter a password-protected user account without a password. Whatever is your favorite password, it is not overwritten when you restart Windows and the original contents of the nucleus and its authorization procedure restored. Kon-Boot boot from floppy / cd / usb, runs in a quiet mode automatically

Requirements


The following will be required to successfully execute this hack.

1. KON-Boot v2.4 - You can download it from here for free and then you will need to install it onto a Bootable USB.

2. USB Pendrive - You need to have a pendrive which is formatted to FAT32. Note: It is important that is formatted to FAT32 for this to work. For formatting, just right click on the USB drive and select "Format" and select "FAT32" from the File System drop down list.

How to Install KON-Boot onto USB


1. First Extract the .zip file. Go to the folder "kon-bootUSB".

2. Now, insert your USB drive into your computer. Make sure, no other USB drive is attached.

3. If you are using Windows 7 or higher,Right click on "usb_install_RUNASADMIN.bat" and click on "Run as Administrator". We need to run this .bat file using administrator rights. Once you open this file, you will get a series of notifications, for which you will have to click on "Okay". If you are using Windows XP or lower.Click on "USB_INSTALL_DIFF.vbs" and follow the instructions.

4. If there has been no problem, you will get the below confirmation dialogue box.





Now that we have successfully installed KON-Boot onto our computer, we can now move into our main step, that is, how to bypass your victim's loging screen.

Bypassing Windows Password Protection


1. You will need to open the BIOS setup. For this, you will need to switch on their computer and as soon as it turns on, you will get a series of options at the lower screen. Click on the appropriate action to "Enter BIOS Setup".It depends entirely on which computer brand your victim uses. My Lenovo computer for instance, opens BIOS when I press "Fn+F10". You can Google for more details.

2. Once you have entered the BIOS setup, you will have to find the "Boot Options". In those options you have to change the order of priority such that the first priority is given to "USB Drive" and then to your Hard Disk. Doing so, will let your computer boot through USB first, instead of the usual Windows through your Hard Disk.

3. Additionally, if your computer has EFI support, please "Disable EFI" in the BIOS settings. It will be near the BIOS settings.

4. After the above changes have been made to the BIOS, you save it and exit. Let the computer restart. You will get 2 options where you click on "KON-Boot (Current Version)" for Windows 7 and higher versions and "KON-Boot (Old Version)" for Windows XP and lower.

5. It might take some time initially to boot the first time, you will also be displayed the KON-Boot logo.That is completely normal. After which the default Windows OS will load.

6. That's it! Now when the Login screen appears, DO NOT type anything for the password, just click the login button and you would have logged on without any problem!
