You only need to burn the ISO image of Reset Windows Password to a blank CD, then set your locked computer to boot from the CD and it’ll guide you to reset the forgotten Windows password to blank. This CD can be used to reset lost password on any Windows system, While the password reset disk created by Windows built-in features works only on the specific computer it’s burned.
