I would like to create a password rest cd, that I can use to reset mainly local admin account passwords on windows machine. Does anyone know how I can create a cd, dvd or USB that I can use to rest local admin passwords on windows machines?
Freeware would much be appreciated.

I use it all the time at work, and best of all, it is free.
