Umbraco admin reset

Simple project that allows reset of the admin user(user 0) username and password by adding the UmbracoAdminReset.dll to the ~/bin folder of your Umbraco installation. Handy when you inherit a site and didn't receive the credentials.

Username will be reset to Admin and password to Admin1234!

During the startup of the site UmbracoAdminReset will reset the username and password, will make sure the admin user is unlocked and will delete itself afterwards so you can login and change the credentials yourself.
