To reset your password you need to be able to log onto the computer to start of with.  Once you have logged in, go to the Control Panel, click on User Accounts, click on your account name and then select "Change Password" from the options available to you.  You will need to supply the old password and then enter the new password.
If you cannot get into Windows because you cannot remember the password, download Offline NT Password Editor (http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/bootdisk.html) It is a bootable CD which will reset the password to any user account to blank.

    Create Windows XP Password Reset Disk


    Did you forget your Windows XP User password? You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.Or you can use your password reset disk. This article describes how to create a password reset disk for a computer that is not a member of a domain in Microsoft Windows XP.(that is part of a workgroup, or that is not connected to a network.)

    What is the Windows XP Password Reset Disk?Do you need to enter a password when booting into Windows XP Pro? Afraid you might forget this password down the road and not be able to run your PC? Make a password reset disk to protect against a lost password.


    Note: You may want to know how to create a user login password to protect xp.

    To protect user accounts in the event that the user forgets the password, every local user should make a password reset disk and keep it in a safe place. Then, if the user forgets his or her password, the password can be reset using the password reset disk and the user is able to access the local user account again.

    The Forgotten Password Wizard lets you create a XP password reset disk that you can use to recover your user account and personalized computer settings if you forget your password.

    How to create a XP password reset diskTo create a password reset disk for your local user account, use the following method.

    RequirementsThe following methods require a floppy disk drive and a blank floppy disk. As we all know, the floppy disk is easily damagedand it is out of date. In this demonstration, I will use a blank USB Fash Disk instead of floppy disk. Firstly make sure it is connected with your computer.

    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    2. In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.

    3. In the User Accounts pane, click the account that you want to work with. Here I will click my account name "Andy".

    4. Under the Related Tasks left side options, click Prevent a forgotten password to start the Forgotten Password Wizard, and then click Next.

    5. In the drop-down menu, there are 2 options for us to choose. One is Floppy A, another is WPKEY (It is the name of my USB Flash Drive). Select the WPKEY and then click Next.

    6. In the Current User Account Password box, type Andy's password , and then click Next. The Forgotten Password Wizard will start creating the disk.
    Note: If the user account does not have a password, just leave it blank in the Current user account password box.

    7. When the progress indicator shows 100% complete, click Next and then click Finish in the next window.


    The password reset disk contains only one file called userkey.psw, which is an encrypted version of your password.

    Finally Label the disk "Windows XP Password Reset" and store it in a safe place. You can use the password reset disk to gain access to your Windows XP-based computer if you forget your password.

    Tips:
    1.
    You only need to create a password reset disk for your Windows XP logon password once. No matter how many times you change your password, this disk will always allow you to create a new one.

    2. Keep in mind that anyone who possesses this disk will be able to access your account at any time, even if you change your password.You'd better store it in a safe place.

    3. Not a Windows XP user? See the guides for other Windows versions.
    How to Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk?

    How to Create a Vista Password Reset Disk?

    4. Unfortunately, if you've forgotten your Windows XP password and can no longer acceses Windows, you won't be able to create a password reset disk. Luckily there is a Windows password recovery program which can help you to find lost password. It is popular way of getting your password back, even you don't have a password reset disk.
