It is a good idea to have a Vista password reset disk on hand to have as a backup in case you forget your login password. If you are on a domain, you will not be able to use this information as your system administrator can reset your password for you. To create a password reset disk for a local user account, here's how:
1. Insert a removable media such as a flash drive of a floppy disk
2. Go to Start
3. Select Control Panel
4. Select User Accounts and Family Safety
5. Select User Accounts
6. Select "Create a password reset disk" from the left pane
7. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the process
Be sure to store your password reset disk in a safe place.
