Once you’ve installed the software, you get to choose what device you wish to use to create a bootable media file. You can either pick a CD or a USB flash drive. We recommend using flash drive just to keep up with the times. But if can find a CD go ahead.
Hit Begin Burning, once you selected your device.
Once the software informs you that the burning is complete, you can proceed to plug it into the PC you’re locked out of and set it up so that the PC boots up from the Drive you just created.
To finish off, simply select the Windows install directory and the User Name of the account you want to regain access to, and hit the “reset password” option.
