Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
As you have not mentioned your windows version and use account, I am assuming that you have Windows Xp with user account with admin previleges.
1> Restart computer and just after it shows first screen(which is manufacturer logo may be HP, Dell,..) Press F8 number of times.
2> It will give you various options to choose, move with your keyboard to "Safe mode" and then hit enter.
3> It will show you lots of driver list, don't worry it will pass. Then it will give you user accounts to choose, One will be your normal one and the other will be "Administrator"
4>Login with administrator and go to desktop(it will ask you to click on yes or no> click "yes")
5>click on start> all programs>accessories> "command prompt". It will give black window.
6> on this black windows type "NET USER" hit enter.
7> It will show you some user accounts, Identify your one and remember it.
8> then type NET USER "your user account name" 123456 then hit enter
9) restart your computer and now your user account password has been changed to "123456", login with this password and be happy.
If you have any problem with these steps , do let me know.
Please make sure that you should not have wireless mouse or keyboard while following these steps as they might not work in safe mode.

On another computer, you should
1. dnld the offline password editor from: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/
2. burn to a CD,
3. Get the machine to boot from CD (or floppy) with default drivers (unless you have sata drivers you need 2 install, if youre not sure, youre probably ok)
(if it doesnt find any active installations of windows you likely have to load sata hard disc drivers by pressing (m) to manually load drivers of which the tool gives you a load of options to choose your driver from )
4. Disk select, tell which disk contains the Windows system. Usually C: drive. Optionally you will have to load drivers.
5. PATH select, where on the hard drive is the system?
6 File select gives option as to which parts of registry to load, based on what you want to do.
7. Enter 1 for Password reset or other registry edit.
8. enter 1 to edit user data and passwords
9. type user account name for which you want to change and hit enter
10. enter 1 to select clear (blank) password and hit enter
11. must now enter (!) to quit
12. enter (q) to quit again
13. type (y) to confirm Write back to disk
now you can reboot and log back in as the user youve just changed and use the blank password

Click start run type cmd press Enter
black screen should open DOS mode
this will vary depending on your operating system
type in net user username
For eg. If you want to change administrator password , type net user Administrator
it will prompt you to enter the new password
enter the new password and the password is changed
hope this helps
