You could do one of 2 things.

1. find a copy of ERD command and use the locksmith program.

2. Use the free linux boot disc found in the link below to reset the password ( I recommend clearing it then resetting again once you can get into windows.) Of course you will need another computer to use to get this disc i suggest a friends. This disc works with ALL versions of windows.

Forgot password, window xp home edition, how to by pass


Here is a little trick to use that may or may not work:
Start the computer in safe mode and log on as administrator. It's surprising how many people set up their XP computers and password protect their profile, but forget to password protect the administrator account. Once in, you can change your password in your own account.

Need to reset the administrative password for my windows xp desktop


Hi there Allenia,

To reset the Administrator user, you need to right click your My Computer and choose "Manage". The Computer Management window will open. Expand the Local Users and Groups from the left panel and click Users. Right click the Administrator user shown on the right and click Set Password. Click OK. That's it!

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

I forgot my Administrator Password


you should be able to contact dell support and they should have you on file. when you first bought the computer and logged on the web you had to register your computer. dell should have this information on file, also because each windows program has a register number they might also have you on file. i would try this and it should solve the problem.. please rate this and also please reply back if it doesn't get solved..thanks
