Reset Windows XP/Vista passwords – NTpasswd / Hiren's BootCD

Every once and a while I have to revive a Windows box that I haven’t used for a while and I can’t recall the passwords.  Fortunately, NTpasswd can reset the passwords.  If you prefer a bootable USB thumb drive it’s pretty painless to create one with unetbootin.

Another option is to use Hiren's BootCD which includes a plethora of useful recovery tools.
