    Guys when you are on the welcome screen and you enter a wrong password for your user, vista shows a "reset password..." option on the bottom. I know how the Reset Password Wizard works and thats NOT my question. My question is how can I make the "reset password..." button open "cmd.exe" instead of the original "Reset Password Wizard".Please help.Thank you in advance.

    Hello Roma,

    You cannot using that, but this will show you how to boot to the
    command prompt instead.

    If you just wanted to reset the password, then METHOD THREE in the
    tutorial below can show you how to.

    Hope this helps,
