This works 100%. Tested it on DUAL boot (on same hard drive XP & Vista in different partitions and resetted passwords on both the operating systems) as well. Fantastic work in seconds. Even activated the disabled Administrator account on Vista with ease resetted its pass as well. WORKS JUST AWESOME.
