How To Change Password Of Users In Windows XP


On Internet, I found so many people are confused about how to change the passwords of users in Windows XP even though it is a easy job. As far as we know, changing logon password of our Windows regularly is a good habit to help keep our PC secure, I just researched and found out the below ways to change the password of users in Windows XP. You can use either one to achieve your goal.
Follow the simplest ways you thought to change your Windows XP logon password:
If you know any other interesting way, please let me know through comments.
Using Control Panel
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Changing your Windows XP logon password usually takes less than a few minutes
Here’s How:
go to Start –> Control Panel –> User Accounts
Tip: You can also open control panel by Start –> Run –> control. This will open Control Panel.
Select the user for which you want to change the password and select Change my password.

Note: you must need appropriate privileges to change the password of another user.
Using Ctrl+Alt+Delete
Difficulty: The easiest one in my opinion
Time Required: It just takes me one minute
Here’s How:
If your press Ctrl+Alt+Del when you are logged onto your Windows XP machine, it will show you the classic security options.

Select change password and change the password of the logged on user.
Note: If the security options does not appear. Task manager shows up instead of the security options. Just go to Start –> Control Panel –> User Accounts –> Change the way Users Log on or off.
Uncheck Use the Welcome Screen. Log off and logon again. Now pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del will show the security options window.
Using Command Prompt
Difficulty: medium
Time Required: It may takes a few minutes
Here’s How:
go to Run –> cmd.
Command prompt will open. Use the following commands to change the password:
net user username password /domain
Replace username with the original username and password with the new password you want to assign to that user. /domain is optional. If you are in a domain environment, specify the domain name otherwise, if you’re using a local user, leave /domain. If I want to change the password of user Sanix to 12345. I will issue the following command at command prompt:
net user Sanix 12345
It will change the password of the user Sanix to 12345.

Note: if you’re not logged on as an administrator, you will get the following error:
“System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied”
Using Control userpasswords2
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: It may takes less than a few minutes
Here’s How:
go to Start –> Run –> control userpasswords2
This will open the classic user accounts management window. Select any user and select reset password.

Using Computer Management Console
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: It may takes a few minutes
Here’s How:
right click My Computer –> Manage –> Local Users And Groups –> Users
Right click the username for which you want to change the password and select Reset Password.

If you compare the ways hereinabove carefully .You’ll find that the premise of using above ways to change your PC users password is you must logon the system with a user who has the appropriate privileges to change the password of another user. But if you forget any user password including administrator, what can you do?

There are two ways to do it.
1) when the logon screen appears, enter your password (if no, just press enter), you will be back where when you leave.

2) set the screen protection off by: clicking right mouse button on the desktop -> screen protection -->in screen protection box select none --- OK. Then, no logon screen will appear.

Try it.

Logon


Go into your BIOS
Set the 1st Boot device preference to CD
Insert your windows XP disk
Boot from CD
Run XP Repair

You do this at your own risk. I am in no way accountable for damage to your computer.

Logon


Can you describe the issue ion more detail?
Do you see a startup screen with the Windows Logo? Does the logon screen come up? Does the computer get out of the BIOS startup?
