UBCD has an NTFS account psw reset.

Also he can activate the hidden built-in Admin account for back-up.

However, he shouldn't use the built-in Admin account for everyday useage.

Hi
have you got the .ISO file on the USB or have you burned the actua
files to the stick. the ISO has to be burned to create a bootable media
have not done this with USB stick myself but should work as long as US
is enabled as bootable drive in BIOS. The is a tutorial in the tutorial
section here which explains Bootable USB will try to locate it but yo
may want to have a look yourself as I have to rush out to the day job :
