XP Home Forgotten Password


If you've forgotten your password and are using Windows XP (home version), you may be able to change the password with the following procedure. Note: this procedure will not work if someone has secured the administrator account.
The administrator account is set to nothing by default in Windows XP (home version only). In order to access the administrator account, you have to boot up into Safe Mode.

On powering up your computer, press F8 repeatedly to get the boot menu. Select Safe Mode and boot into safe mode. Once there, you will be in the Administrator account where you can go into control panel and select User Accounts. You can reset the password of the user account that you've forgotten for here.

Be sure to give your administrator account a secure password so that someone else cannot do the same to your computer without your authorization. Once you do this, the above procedure will not work.

Now there are several programs available on the internet for a modest fee that will allow you to reset your forgotten password without having to go through the above procedures. Just do a search for "windows password reset" (without the quotes) and you'll be presented with many different programs. These all usually require you to create a bootable CD or USB drive (they instruct you how to do it) and you boot the problem computer with this newly created CD or USB drive and the software takes over from there.
