Not true. 

 

On a working-computer with a CD-writer, Google-search for "Nordahl offline password".

Use this software to burn some of its files onto one CD-recordable media.

Boot your computer from this media, and follow the on-screen instructions to "blank" the Windows password.

Reboot.

When asked for a password, just press ENTER.

Later, set a new password.
