Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
And I have windows vista. I have a desktop and I can only log in as a guest.
If you have the Administrator user password. Try logging in with it and reset your user password.
If you dont, that's a big problem.
The only solution is that to remove the hard disk for that machine and connect it to another machine with administrator privilages. Guest user will not be able to access the files.
You need to backup all your data to another PC. Format and install a clean windows installation. Move your data back to your original PC.
There is no way to hack around the forgotten password.

Tips for a great answer:
You can try the below given steps to
reset administrator password using guest account (you must have write
access to system32 file):
1. Navigate to location
2. Copy cmd.exe file to desktop and
rename it to sethc.exe
3. Now copy this sethc.exe file and
paste to system 32 (when windows asks for overwriting click yes).
4. Log out from guest account and at
user login screen press shift key 5 times.
5. It will open command prompt with
full administrator privileges.
6. Now type "NET USER ADMINISTRATOR
xyz123" (where "xyz123" can be any password according to your
choice) and press enter.
7. You will see "The Command
completed successfully" and then exit the command prompt and login
into administrator with your new password.
If you don't have write access to system32 file then you can use stellar phoenix password recovery software to reset administrator password.
