There are three methods to reset the Administrator passwords;

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}1stMethod:

The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we installWindows, it automatically creates an account “Administrator” and sets itspassword to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then trythis:

Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ++keys twice and it’ll show Classic Login box. Now type “Administrator” (withoutquotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and youshould be able to log in Windows.

Now you can reset your account password from “Control Panel -> UserAccounts“.

Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show thisin-built Administrator account in Login screen.

====================

2nd Method:

Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recoverforgotten password by using “Reset Disk“. If you created a Password Reset Diskin past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more about it,please visit following links:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}====================

3rd Method:

If the above mentioned tricks doesnt work, then try following trick which isactually a loophole in Windows XP Setup and a big security hole:

A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like AcceptingEULA, etc.

B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it andpress “R” to run the repair.

C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.

D. After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it restartsdon’t press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…” otherwise Setupwill start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and setup will resume whereit left.

E. Now it’ll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with afew details in left side.

F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing devices“, press+F10 keys in your keyboard.

G. It’ll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .

H. It’ll open the same “User Accounts” window which you see in Control Panel.

I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

Enjoy......

Try by logging in with the administrator account. You can do this by pressing F8 while windows starts and choosing to boot into Safe Mode. Then select the Administrator account. You can then edit/change user settings once logged in.

If this does not work (like when there's a password assigned to the administrator account as well), your only solution is to do a clean install of windows xp. This is not ideal, though, as you'll lose the data on your drive (for example all files under my documents/pictures/music and the desktop.

Good luck.

Can not get past blue log in window enter my pasword but keeps asking for correct pasword .How can i get into control box to change user


Hi,
to solve the password problem there's a way you can try:
when you turn on the pc, after the bios info (just before the Windows start loading) press and hold "F8" key
It will appear a menu where you can choose to start in "safe mode"
the system will start and you see now that you can login with an user "administrator", usually there's no password so you can access and change your users' settings
If you can't solve this way you need a more complicated way: a software that recover lost passwords. Let me know what happen so I can suggest you some of them.
cheers

Windows xp


depends which password, if you mean the log on password, you have to keep pressing F8 on boot up and get you into start windows with safe mode option. when in click on the administrator account, then go to users, go to your normal account and either delete or change password, then restart pc If you mean administrator account when trying to alter windows set up or you cannot get into an administrator account you will have to reinstall windows from scratch to set up the registry again and allow administrative rights. If you mean the bios pasword you have to remove the cmos battery and clear the cmos itself from which has to be done on the motherboard shorting terminals.
