Hack the Sticky Keys Feature to Reset a Forgotten Windows Password

Here's a neat little trick I stumbled on at Boot off a repair disk then opening a command prompt and copying cmd.exe over sethc.exe. Then boot windows and hit the Shift key 5 times at the Windows login prompt to bring up a command prompt. From there you can simply reset the user's password using the net user command.
