Linux to the rescue

by jdclyde In reply to root sector or regedit pr ...

Get an Ubanto or some live distro that will boot and run off of the CD.

Once you boot into linux, you will have full access to your hard drive and all the windows locks will be ignored.

Good luck.

For the future, you can even load feather linux to boot off of a flash drive, so it is easier to carry around.
