Concept :- 
Windows Stores user accounts passwords in a file SAM . Which is located in ( C:/windows/system32/config ) With chntpw  software utility we will be able to reset or blank local passwords used by Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, and 7. It does this by editing the SAM database It is included in many security focused Linux distributions such as BackTrack and Knoppix STD.
