You have numerous applications that are able to do this. the only drawback is if EFS (encrypted file system) has been enabled on the xp system in question, if it has unless to know the password the files that have been encrypted will remain unreadable.

one of the free apps out there can be downloaded from the link below;
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

this particular one is an iso image that should be burnt onto a cd, you reboot your computer making sure that boot from cd is permitted, then follow the prompts.

note from my own experience: you tend to have more sucess when changing the administrator password, if you leave it blank ie no password entered.

more info can be found hear, http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm#20 in fact a quick google on this subject should also provide a wealth of info.
PS you should not need to pay for the software as most of it is based on Linux.

XP PASSWORD BREAK


One method of gaining access to the system is by trying hard to remember the forgotten password, or a password of another user which has the same level of administrative rights. However I don't think this approach will help you, otherwise you wouldn't be sitting here reading article, would you?
Another method is by trying to restore a backed up System State (in Windows 2000/XP/2003) or a ERD (in NT 4.0) in which you do remember the password. The problem with doing so is that you'll probably lose all of the recently add users and groups, and all the changed passwords for all of your users since the last backup was made.
A third method might be to install a parallel operating system on a different partition on the same computer, then use a simple trick to gain access to the old syste
Here are 5 of these tools:
  1. SpotMau Password Finder - Simple startup utility resets a forgotten admin or users' password using a familiar Windows-like program interface instead of command-line.
  2. Windows Key - Top rated version of Passware's Windows Key app, supports Windows Vista and RAID/SCSI/SATA drives.
  3. Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor - A great boot CD/Floppy that can reset the local administrator's password.
  4. Openwall's John the Ripper - Good boot floppy with cracking capabilities.
  5. EBCD – Emergency Boot CD - Bootable CD, intended for system recovery in the case of software or hardware faults.
