Have a look in your motherboard manual your looking for the clear CMOS jumper that should clear the BIOS for you and reset defaults.

You have to leave the battery (CMOS battery) out for around 10 minutes.

I've met systems you have to leave the battery out for several hours - but it will clear the password for sure.

As for the program - I've used similar ones in the past successfully for email account passwords and the like - I'm not sure how you'll do it for a BIOS password - since at BIOS password time you'll not be running the program!!
