Need a Windows ISO image?

I like the TrinityRescue Kit. It hasn't been updated in two years, but it still works like achamp.
Trinity downloads as an .iso file, which you can burn to a bootableCD. You can also use the Universal USB Installer to createa bootable flash drive. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, see Bootdiscs explained: An overview of booting your PC from something other than yourhard drive.)
When you boot Trinity, you'll find yourself in an ugly,text-based environment. But not a difficult one. From the initial menu, select Windows password resetting.
At the next prompt, select Winpass with prompt for username first, then enter the login namefor the administrator account.
Most of the options will be easy to pick. When you get tothe User Edit Menu prompt, select the first option, Clear (blank) user password. That will allow you to boot into theadministrator account without entering a password.
Once in Windows, created a new password for theAdministrator account. And remember it.
