Recovering Admin Password

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm using a Mac Boot Camp'd to run Windows XP Pro, and while updating Windows this morning, I ended up with a password prompt. Problem is, I have no idea what my password is (never thought to write it down as I'm the only one who uses this computer and had no reason to log in specifically). Is there any way to recover or reset my password?

Wow, it worked. I would never have thought to try that.

Thanks a lot.

Actually, I have another question that's related to this: Is there a way to get Windows to NOT ask me for a password (even if I just have to press Enter) every time I boot up my computer?
