    I've got someone who has forgotten his Windows 8 login password. I have an emergency boot disc that removes the password for Vista and "7". Do you know if this will also work for Windows 8? If not can you recommend a freeware tool that does? TIA

    Thanks for the video link. I actually discovered a very simple way to deal with the problem if the user is logging in with a Microsoft account, which is to use the password recovery options for the account from another computer.
