From memory you can send a Break signal from the menu in putty, although it's a bit painful. You could try teraterm, maybe that's better on windows.

Connects to the SCE platform.

Step 3      At the prompt, type PSWD_ResetAll and press Enter.

Resets the enablepasswords.

The following message will appear:

All 'enable' passwords have been reset.

The SCOS is now using the default passwords for all levels. Note that this is a temporary state that is not preserved after a reboot. Rebooting the SCE platform without changing and saving the passwords will restore the unknown passwords.

n order to block unauthorized users from connecting to the SCE platform using the default password, a new password should be configured immediately for all levels for which such a password is required. The configuration should be saved (use the CLI command copy running-config startup-config) to make the new passwords permanent.
