Offline NT Password & Registry Editor should begin downloading automatically. The download is in the form of a single ISO file contained within a single ZIP file.

Important: There are not separate versions of Offline NT Password & Registry Editor for different Windows operating systems. This single program is capable of removing the password from any user account in Windows 2000 or newer Microsoft operating systems. This includes Windows 8 (local accounts only), Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

If prompted, choose to Download or Save the file - browsers often phrase this differently. Save the file to your Desktop or another place you can get to easily. Offline NT Password & Registry Editor is a small download so it won't take long.

Note: The screenshot above shows the completed download process for the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor ZIP file when downloading using Internet Explorer in Windows 7. If you're downloading with a different browser or on a different operating system, this will likely look a little different for you.

Once downloaded, extract the ISO file from the ZIP file. Feel free to do this using the integrated tool in Windows or some other free file extractor tool - I like 7-Zip a lot.
