    tapi…macam mana kalau dorang tak buat password reset disk?

  9. I have downloaded windows password key 8.0. It is a very quick and useful utility for resetting passwords. 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.
    Just an easy to use bootable CD/DVD . It can also be used on a USB Flash Drive.

  10. Free trial Windows Password Recovery Tool—Windows Password Unlocker is highly recommended
    1.Download Windows Password Unlocker from Password Unlocker Official site.
    2.Decompress the Windows password unlocker and note that there is an .ISO image file. Burn the image file onto an blank CD with the burner freely supported by Password Unlocker.
    3.Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.
    4.After launched the CD, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts) select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, you have removed the password.

  11. I know a simple way to reset windows password to blank when you forgot windows administrator password,it need not to reinstall windows OS,and wont loss any data,by using “Any Windows Password Recovery 3.0 “. Maybe this could help you.
    You could get the windows password recovery tool from the reference link:
