The only thing I know is the password cracker, which boots Linux, of
course, and mounts the Windoze partition, then walks you through resetting
the password. I *think* it lets you do some other things, *maybe* (it's
been nearly three years since I needed it) has a tool for the registry.

I'm having trouble googling it - I'm being prevented by security here.
