Offline NT Password Recovery

Midway upon the journey of life,
I find myself in the dark woods of Windows administration
for the Admin password had been lost.

But this Offline NT Password & Registry Editor helped me blank out the password and unlock the account. I suppose I should download the CD image and start making a small kit of boot/recovery disks.

Note that this is only for older Windows workstations using local authentication. Changing a lost Administrator password on a Win2K PDC seems to require more involved techniques.

    I have downloaded Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 from it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive do this. GUI interface with mouse clicking instead of command prompt
