    Does it clear the password or change it to some default password?
    I ask because I guessed the password, it was "password" thought that might be a little odd, but maybe?

    First you scan the HDD for the SAM, then you select the SAM. After that you select your account that you want the password to be removed and apply the settings. Restart the computer and there should be no password.
