You know you need an account-specific password reset disk to successfully use that option?

Oh yah you should have recovery disk to be able to recovery from there, Its useless! Download KonBoot it will remove the password very easy

If you are asking why i want to remove that is because there is a simple way to bypass windows password from that by a fake reset password

Would secure logon protect from this fake reset you talk of? (I have no idea what that is by the way) Secure Logon - Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to log on

Secure logon only protects against programs that try to forge the login screen to steal your password, by warranting that the login you see is the real one (because only the system can intercept ctrl-alt-del, not any other program). I don't see how does that prevent the use of the reset password link, that still appears after the key sequence has been issued.

What kind of "fake reset password" are you talking about? Could you expand your issue?
Is it a security risk or simply convenience?
