This simple, innocent looking USB drive will erase any Windows password, allowing you full access to an account. And best of all, it is 100% free! (assuming you already have an old flash drive)

Step 1: What You Will Need
Material-wise, this is not complex, and you should not have a problem getting all of these things.
1. USB storage device (Size is not an issue, the files are less than 4 megabytes)
2. Windows computer with USB ports and internet access.
3. Administrative privileges. (Needed to make the USB drive bootable)
This is designed and works only for Windows. I have only tested it on Windows 7, but Windows 2000 or later should work just fine. Linux users, be happy that your operating system is more secure.
Step 2: Preparing The USB Drive: Formatting
Open My Computer, right click your USB drive, and click Format.
On the menu that pops up, set the file system to FAT, and leave everything else at its default.
Click Start. If a dialog box pops up warning you that it will erase all of the data, click OK.
Wait for it to finish, then click Close.
Step 3: Preparing the USB Drive: Files
Extract this archive. It will contain an ISO file. You can either extract that (Using winRAR or a similiar program), or mount it (Using an ISO mounter like Daemon Tools).
Copy all of the files from the ISO to your formatted USB drive.
It should look like this:
