Win XP Lost Password - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Kon-boot will completely bypass the windows password, and only requires you to boot off of a USB/floppy/CD. I'm assuming that the XP install is 32 bit, which the free version supports.

If you need to change the password before boot, try ntpsswd, which also boots off of floppy/CD/USB and modifies your password preboot.

both should be faster than trying to crack the password

As mentioned above the administrator account password may be blank. You don't have to boot into safe mode to log on though. Another way is to wait until the user log on screen appears and hit ctrl-alt-del twice which will bring up a log on prompt in which you can specify the user name. Enter administrator for the user name and blank password, cross your fingers and toes.
