    Melissa:
    If your computer is on a secure domain, why do you need to reset a local account on a computer? Can’t you log onto the computer using a domain admin account and then reset the local account?

    I read somewhere that these (well, at least the linux ‘ntpassword recovery disk’) doesn’t work with computers that have been joined to a domain. I have never needed to use it.

    There are separate tools available for recovering domain accounts.
