    Password reset utility (XP Pro)

    Has anybody had experience (good or bad) with using Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to reset passwords in XP? It appears to come from the NT era, and I'm wondering how it performs on the newer XP.

    Yes, I have had both good and non-effective (but not bad) experience with it. The latter may have been because I was in a rush and may not have "read the manual" correctly! (It is not entirely obvious which reply you should make to each of the many screen prompts). The only downside I (think I) found was that it doesn't handle Windows Server 2003 with Active Directory, but it's supported XP since December 2002!
