Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I'm trying to login to a pc with window xp on it. It shows a hint for the password, but the person who owns it cannot figure out the password hint otr password. what can I do
Two ways to to fix this:
If you can log in with a different account crack the password:
1.crack the password - Use http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
If you just want to reset the password use this solution:
2.reset the password with a bootdisc - http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
I've used both and they work great, let me know if you need more help =)

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened
security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the
people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the
first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with
reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.
If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal for safe mode.
Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.
Reboot your machine.
