Don’t ask why – but I had need to reset an Administrator password on a Windows XP workstation today.
I had forgotten the password, it was locked out, the machine wasn’t in AD – and I was stuck.
Luckily there are a wealth of tools to help in this situation – including this. Petter Nordahl-Hagen has written a stunning Linux based boot floppy that just fixes things like this in seconds. Thanks Petter.
