Hi

If ever you forget your passwords on windows XP especially try boot the computer in safe mode by pressing F8 (tap repeatedly during start off immediately when its turned on)...and log onto the administrators account...From there go to control panel and select the user accounts option and change your password form there...Also create a reset disk to avoid problems later on when you next forget the password(which i trust you won't :) )

Good Luck

Genius Guy

(PS if it does not work there are plenty of programs that can reset these password... google it)

Forgot your Windows XP password? Don't worry about that. I have troubled the same thing before. I searched from internet and solved the problem. Now i want to share with you and hope it will really help.

Solution 1: If you have owned another available admin password, it can work. Just log on your PC->Click "Start"button->Control Panel->Add or remove user account->Select the account you want to reset->Change or Remove the password. Then the password will be reset.

Solution 2: You can use one of the password recovery software tool to reset the forgotten password. Here, i would like to introduce you one of them, which i have applied. It is really a good hand. That is Windows Password Reset . The process is following.
Step 1: Download the Windows Password Reset Deluxe from http://www.windowspasswordreset.net and burn a erasable CD
Step 2: Boot the CD into the ISO image which is provided by Windows Password Reset Deluxe
Step 3:BIOS settings
Step 4:Recover the Windows XP admin password.
It is an easy-to-use way to reset windows password.

You can have a try.

I forgot my password for my other window i don't have a disk to rest password i don't know what to do


The best way to resolve this problem is to reset your account's password using the Offline NT Password & Registry editor.
You can download it at the following link: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

This utility will enable you to reset the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2k/XP/Vista/7 etc system.
The link above includes some directions on how to use this utility, however the basic idea is to download the ISO image to a different computer, burn it to a blank CD
, then use it to boot up your computer & reset your account's password.

I forgot my e-recovery password, no recovery disks...


Don't you have created the password Recovery disk early?
If you do, you can sign into safe mode and recover the password.
If you don't have the password reset disk. you have to take use of the 3rd party utility,
Windows Password Recovery 6.0 is highly recommend. It is fast and easy to use.
