Log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.

How to bypass Windows XP password? We often meet the headache stuff that don't...


How to bypass Windows XP password? We often meet the headache stuff that don't know the Windows system password at the critical comment. How to do if you made a Windows XP password that you never be care of it? How should you do when your computer has parents controlled by the XP Administrator password? Or you need to borrow a friend's computer to carry out emergency work, but you don't know the admin password...Let's share some tips about how to bypass windows XP password.

First things first, try the guest account. Simply enter 'Guest' in the user name box, or click on the account labeled Guest. Sometimes people will have these account enabled without even realizing it, and many times they are left without a password. If this doesn't work for you, or you require a little bit more access than the Guest account provides, read on.

Next up is Windows XP's built in 'Administrator' account. This account is created during Windows installation, and is not accessible under normal circumstances. Many computers, especially those that come from Dell or similar companies, leave the Administrator account without password protection.

To get to this account, boot the computer into safe mode. You can do this by holding down the F8 key during startup, and selecting Safe Mode from the Windows boot menu. Once the computer boots into Safe Mode, you'll have access to the Administrator account. Things will look a little weird in Safe Mode, but don't worry, things will be fine when you boot normally again.

Once Windows finishes booting, try getting into the Administrator account, leaving the password field blank. If you're unable to get in this way, then there is a password on the account, and unless you can guess it, you're going to have to try something else, and you can skip the next paragraph. If you're in, then there's no limit to what you can do.

Besides, you can also take use of Windows password reset CD to remove Windows XP password if you forgot Windows XP password. Well, how can you get Windows password reset CD? Just download Windows Password Unlocker and a blank CD, you can DIY a Windows password reset CD in 4 steps.

In fact, Windows Password Unlocker can be used to bypass windows 7 password, bypass windows vista password , bypass windows NT password and so on.

Try going into the control panel in the start menu. Then open the user accounts and see if you can change the password within here. There will be a link to click that says change password. If it does not work You can try loading safe mode.
To load safe mode press F8 repeatedly when turning computer on. This will bring up an advanced options menu. > Within the advanced options menu use the arrow keys on keyboard to navigate.> Highlight safe mode and press enter. > This will load windows into safe mode when loaded it will take you to screen for users to sign in. > Try logging into the administrator account without putting anything in the password field. > you can try any other accounts here as well to see if they may let you in > If this allows you to log in. You can go into the control panel under the start menu. > Then go into user accounts and change the password from within here. There will be a link that says change password.
