2. The program asks for the Windows installation hard drive volume. Enter the ID number of the hard drive volume that Windows is installed.
3. The program has detected all the user names of Windows and asks which user name password is to be removed. Enter the ID number for the User Name.
4. The program asks to confirm weather to remove the password or not. Enter "y" (yes) to confirm your action and "n" (no) to deny the action and hit "Enter".
5. The program asks whether to continue to remove passwords for other accounts. Enter "y" to continue and "n" to finish. Eject your USB from your computer first and press any key to restart the computer from Windows. Now you can log in Windows with an empty password (with no password).
