Mantelo is right and it is the .SAM file you need to locate, if you plug the hard drive up to pc as a slave device you will be able to locate this file within the windows folder, use notepad to open it

The password is store in the SAM, which is encrypted. If you want to recover a password, you need a password cracker like this


Good luck

Help me.. i have forgotton my bloody password :) PLEASE HELP ME :L :L :L just give me words and stuffff :D


Reboot, at startup press F8 to access the safe mode menu. As long as you've never set a password for the administrator you should be able to log into safe mode as the administrator without a password. From here, go into User Accounts and select your user name and reset the password from there. In there future, you will want to place a password on your administrator account to keep someone from changing your password or having unauthorized access to your system.

I forgot my password to login to windows XP Pro on my personal laptop. How can I bypass it?


First try is to hold down CTRL + ALT + DEL and try typing in as the user "Administrator" with no password, if this does not work do not worry, it only works on half the systems anyway. Of course the next try is rebooting into safe mode by pressing F8 during the boot but before the windows screen, when it loads up safe mode it actually gives you an administrator option as a login, usually works. The last and third way is to actually use the windows xp operating system disc and boot to it and run a windows repair, suggest talking to a technician if you do this one. Once you get into windows just go to control panel from the start menu and open up user accounts and then access the account that needs the password to be changed and change it.

I want to know my Administrator Password


Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD) 2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
