Windows Password Unlocker Professional is an efficient Windows password recovery utility, which can help you in case you forget or lose your Windows password, saving you from the trouble of reinstalling Windows. The software allows you to reset various Windows login passwords, no matter how complex or long they might be. The operation is done in three simple steps: first, you download the program onto your computer, then create a bootable CD/DVD or USB drive and then reset the lost or forgotten Windows password by means of booting from the created disc or USB drive.

Creating the bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive is an easy thing to do, but requires an Internet connection: you just need to insert a blank CD/DVD or USB, launch the application and follow the on-screen indications to get your bootable CD/DVD or USB created. To reset a password, you just insert the created CD/DVD or USB, restart the computer, and enter the BIOS Setup (usually F2 or Delete key). Therein, you get to the "Boot" tab, and then to "Boot Device Priority". Here you must select the 1st boot device (USB or CDROM, depending on which one you created) and press F10 to restart your computer with the settings changed. After the computer boots from your media, you will find the names of all users displayed. You must select the account you want to access, and press "Reset" to remove its password. The next step is to click "Reboot" in order to restart your computer (remember to remove the USB flash drive or CD/DVD before you agree to restart).

The utility supports FAT16, FAT32, NTFS and NTFS5 partitions, as well as many types of hard disks, such as SATA, IDE and SCSI. The Professional edition works on Windows Servers NT / 2000 / 20003(R2) / 2008(R2).
