Do not have password too get in windows xp pro


Do you have another valid administrator account which can normally log on? If so, you can log on as the administrator to change the account you forgotten.
Or,you can think about the Windows Password Reset , it is very usefull and convenient.

At last,I suggeset you to create a reset disk after reset windows password so you will not afriad forgot windows password any more.
