    Note If the user account does not have a password, do not type a password in the Current user account password box.

    The Forgotten Password Wizard creates the disk.
  7. When the Progress bar reaches 100% complete, click Next, and then click Finish.
  8. Remove and then label the password reset disk. Store the disk in a safe place.
Use a limited account
If you logged on to the computer by using a limited account, follow these steps to create a password reset disk for your user account:

    The Forgotten Password Wizard creates the disk.

  8. Remove and then label the password reset disk. Store the disk in a safe place.
How to log on to the computer by using a password reset disk

  1. On the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name that you want to use. The Type your password box appears. Press ENTER or click the right-arrow button. You receive the following error message: Did you forget your password?
    You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.
    Or you can use your password reset disk.

    Please type your password again.
    Be sure to use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.
  2. Click use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts. The Password Reset Wizard permits you to create a new password for your user account.
  3. Click Next.

  9. Type your new password in the Type your password box, and then click the right-arrow button to log on to the computer.
Troubleshooting
  • The password reset disk cannot be used to reset the password on another computer.

    The password reset disk that you create can only be used with the computer it was created on. For example, if you have two Windows XP-based computers that have the same user names and passwords, a password reset disk that you create on the first computer cannot be used to reset the password on the second computer.
  • The password reset disk contains sensitive information.

    Other users may be able to use the password reset disk to gain access to your computer. For this reason, store this disk in a safe and secure location.
