If you have lost or forgotten your Master Password or you want to disable the feature, you can reset your master password. Upon resetting, you will lose all the stored information in the Password Manager as this is a built-in security feature to prevent people from simply resetting your Master Password to gaining access to your passwords. For Firefox you can also look at the Troubleshooting section in Password Manager.
Firefox: Enter "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" in the Location Bar, press Enter, then click "Reset"
Thunderbird 2: Choose Tools – Error Console, paste the expression: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul") and press the Evaluate button. That will open a dialog asking you if you want to reset your password.
For Mozilla Suite: "Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Master Passwords -> Reset Password".

If you have a repair disk, of course you can try it to crack Windows password. But if you don't have maybe you can consider using Ophcrack. Most time it is helpful but cannot guarantee 100% successful reset. Above all, the last one should be the best method for your Windows password reset. Another safe and effective software you can try, Anmosoft Windows Password Reset. Windows Password Reset Software
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ss/ophcracksbs.htm you can use other software like isoburn or imgburn usually to make a bootable usb if you use that program probably or windows password reset. I have done it before and just boot to usb by pressing f12 or whatever function key gets you to your boot options. If you want you could also change boot device order in bios settings but then you need to change them back after, so its more steps than necessary. I personally haven't used ophcrack but I'm sure it works similarly to the other password recovery software. Hope this helps. Good luck!
Sound like you may have a nasty little virus that is preventing you from running your wipe software. Also, most os will not install outside a root drive without complication. I recommend you run an antivirus software first to eliminate any virus that may be present. If after doing this you still can not use your wipe software, use your restore functon that comes with Vista. (Not sure of your model pc but most have a restore partition built in. Consult your owner's manual.)
Lastly, you said you would like to install an os on the D drive but do not have a software disc. I highly recommend using authentic software from a reputalble vendor. Boot leg software casues more harm than good.

It's looking for a disc or device you've previously setup security with... in this case you don't have that or you'd know what it was asking for.
You may be in for a reformat/reinstall of software on your machine if you can't remember the password. Acer or Microsoft aren't likely to tell you how to get around the password, for obvious reasons, but you might try it and see if they have another undocumented option you might try.
