Windows Key Enterprise

I am using Windows Key Enterprise to reset my password that I have forgotten, I booted with the DVD and selected the account to reset.
it gives me a message:
"windows key fails to reset the password. possible reason windows registry is corrupted."

any help?

It's a little strange to give that error.
I suggest you to try the method five in this website http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/102005-reset-user-account-password.html .

This is probably the most reliable one....

Just burn the .iso, and when prompted, BLANK the password. Don't try and change it.....

This is one of the few paw reset utils we can suggest here on EE....
