Thank you kindly for the update.

I have followed the procedure below to recover the Windows password ***** few hundred times with no problems. The process is quite simple: You create the cd on a working computer, put the cd in the problem computer, and follow the rest of the instructions below.

Please, follow the instructions below to reset your computer's password:
- Click the following link and save the file: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd
- Burn that ISO file to a CD. You can use the application found here if you do not have a CD burner: http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home
- Place the CD in the problem computer, turn it off, turn it on, press the shortcut key responsible for the boot menu ( F12, ESC, F10 ), choose the CD-ROM, and boot.
- Choose Automatic and press Enter
- Sit back and allow the program to locate the passwords for you. It may take up to 10 minutes.

Reboot normally.

I look forward to your next message below or your rating on the top of this page (choosing of number of Stars and clicking the Submit button)

Ok.. I don't have another computer so that's a problem
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

In that case, you will need to do this on a friend's computer or purchase a pre-made OphCrack CD. I found a company that sells them pre-made. So all you have to do is put the purchased CD in the computer and boot off of it. Here is where you can buy one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ophcrack-Windows-Password-Recovery-3-6-0-LIVE-Bootable-CDs-2016-/191625886623?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368
