This time I will share a script that is not my own, but can be extremely handy. Thanks to Jordan Borean for writing and sharing this script!

It is a script to recover a (lost) password of a Windows Service. Every now and then you might find yourself in a situation where you don’t have the password for a service account which runs a Windows Service. When you run this script, it’ll show you the password. It has been tested on Powershell 4 and up, but will probably work on lower versions as well.

The script can be found here on github.
