I just decided to throw this out here for anyone who might not be familiar with the utility or would like to do some reading on it.
Kon boot is a small utility that modifies the kernel while booting, and allows you to bypass the Windows Logon screen by entering any password or leaving it blank. In this way you could easilly log on as Local Admin.
You can find either the free version or the paid verion on the internet, of course the paid has more features. I believe theres also a mac and a linux version, someone correct me if Im wrong.
You will need physical access to the machine, since you boot from usb or dvd. Of course this is just in case you ever find yourself with physical access and don't know the root or local Administrator password.
I normally use it as its integrated in the Ultimate boot CD (UBCD, just google it) since this has many more useful utilities such as this, including diagnostic tools, HDD password unlocker and so much more.
Thats all for now my friends. I apologize for not being able to make this
more in depth, but the tool is pretty straightforward, and simply googling Kon Boot gives you plenty of information..
