    I've never tried that one. I'll check it out.

    I've used: http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
    "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor"
    it's very user friendly too. You pretty much accept all the defaults, it runs
    in a command window.

    Which happens to come with Hiren's CD. As well as a slew of indispensable
    tools.

    And for all the netkops out there, I realize many of these programs are
    commercial. I don't pass judgment, if you need something in a pinch, and it
    saves your ass, great. Now you know it works and can buy the retail version.

    For those who have a "thing" about using a CD like this, try UBCD. It's all
    "free" SW, and it also includes "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor"
