Corrupted admin password file(s)
On 10 November 2013, my Asus® CM1630-06 as upgraded, running Microsoft® Windows® 7.0.8001 (MultiProcessor Kernel 6.1.7601), hit a snag: It failed to accept the password I had reserved for an Administrator account. (The Standard User account this system is unaffected for programs not requiring Superuser priveleges.) Resetting a password in Ubuntu® 12.04.4-LTS can be accomplished by booting into single-user mode from GRUB, but Windows® has no such option. What software can best accomplish a password reset on an admin account in the absence of a Password Recovery Disc (USB) or equivalent remote service?
