Just about a week ago, one of the customer computers came in, with an instance of the customer forgetting the Administrator password. My boss has an "Ultimate Boot CD" which he tried using. When I arrived, he let me try, and it did work quite easily. (That CD also has other tools, such as manufacturer specific hard disk utilities.)
Anyway, thanks for the SHIFT+F10 tip...
One major disadvantage to the method you mentioned is that it is basically a complete Windows reinstallation. All your Windows Updates will probably need to be downloaded all over again. I guess the key is not to forget your password... :-)
I have forgotten a few of mine, but never the ones I use every day. I have my Network54, Hotmail, and freechess.org passwords well memorized. There's no way I am going to forget them. :-) The more frequently you use it, the less possible it becomes to forget it. If you log into Windows every day, how could you ever forget it?
