    Apparently you do not know how to read then. Follow the instructions and links for the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor .

    You can either Pay $149 for ERD Commander or follow the links we showed you above and do it for free. You make the call. I have never had any problems using the Offline NT Password Reset disk.

    The Broken has some good info on cracking Windows passwords. The video files are big, hope you have broadband.

    Not that I'd know...
