There's a difference between having a password...

and changing it.

Man do you do things the hard way!

Here is a bootable disk that will reset any windows machine's
administrator password to anything you want.


Its a great tool to keep around if you need to admin Windows desktops,
because you can always get in.  Its essentially a Linux live cd with
NTFS support, and a registry editor.  Its all command line, but it is
really designed to do one thing, reset a Windows admin password.  If you
have ever had an employee figure that they will change all the passwords
on their last day just to screw with the company (disgruntled), this
program is a god-send.
