How can you figure out the administrator's login password on a windows xp computer


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

Windows xp password


Passwords. Those ubiquitious alpha-numeric codes that protect us and give us access to everything digital. Unfortunately, passwords can be confusing because, though your computer likely won't forget a password, you very well might. When this happens, you can be locked out from your whole system, as in the case of the Windows XP Administrator Password. This article will show you how to remove an Administrator password.

Instructions:
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD drive and boot your computer. If you receive the message "press any key to boot from CD," press any key.
  2. Step 2 Press Enter to setup Windows. After accepting the license agreement, you wil be asked if you want start a Repair process.
  3. Step 3 Press R to begin the Repair process. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files, which can take several minutes. After this, reboot. Let the computer boot normally (do not press a key to boot from CD).
  4. Step 4 Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen. When you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This will open a command line console.
  5. Step 5 Type NUSRMGR.CPL at the prompt and press Enter. This will give you access to User Accounts. Remove or change your password. Write it down! After the repair is finished, you will be able to log on with your new password.
Good luck!

Administrator password


Get the "Windows XP System Restore" CD-ROM disks specific to this computer from your friend. Restart the computer, and boot from the first CD-ROM, and re-install Windows, setting a password that you can remember.

Need XP Professional password for Dell Latitude D600


Assuming Windows XP.

Boot into safe mode. Do so by pressing 'F8' a few times just as the computer begins to boot up (right before the Windows screen)

Once in safe mode, click on administrator (or type it in as the username if it doesn't come up with the welcome screen). It shouldn't, by default, have a password if it is XP Home.

Once logged in as administrator, go to control panel and users and change the password on the account you want or create a new one.
