Tips: iSumsoft Windows Password Refixer makes it easy to create a password reset disk for another computer, but if you have spare removable media, such as a USB flash drive, you are still recommended to make a password reset disk in advance using the Forgotten Password Wizard with Windows itself, just in case you forget your computer password. However, such a reset disk can only reset password for that user account on that computer. It doesn’t work for another user account or another computer.
