4.For instance if we have a domain account we can replace PCunlocker with the domain account.
PCUnlocker is a bootable utility that allows us to bypass or reset forgotten passwords.
Generally, we use this to reset administrator or other user passwords.

Set-LocalUser -Name "pcunlocker" -PasswordNeverExpires 1
