Xp pro boot up hang at log on


When you installed XP, did you put in a password? If so, use Administrator as the username and the password as the password. You will log in as an Administrator and then you can create your own user account from there.

What is the Windows XP Administrator Password?


<p>Windows XP, the most popular versions of Windows, was widely installed by PC users. Do you remember after you installing your first copy of Windows XP, how long did it require you to realize that you didn't know the administrator password? I vaguely remembered that it was about a week before I needed to make some changes in the file system. It suddenly came to me to be logged on as an administrator, but I do not know the password of the administrator! <br /> <p> <br /> <p><img src="windows-xp-administrator-password.jpg" /> <p><br /> Luckily, Windows XP (both Home and Professional versions) have a "hidden" administrator account which is autogenerate when install. This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most people are totally unaware of its existence. Usually it is ok because we didn't need to user this account very often, only when we don't know the administrator password, need access to the Windows XP recovery console or boot into Windows XP safe mode, the default <b>Windows XP administrator password</b> would come in handy.<br /> <p><br /> What is the Default Administrator Password in Windows XP?</b><br /> <p><br /> Knowing the default password of Windows XP administrator account would be very useful.<br /> <ol> <li>Try to leave the password blank. Simply press Enter without typing anything.</li></ol> <p>The default Windows XP Administrator password is defined to blank during the initial Windows XP installation process.<br /> <ol> <li> Enter the password for your account. It often depend on how Windows XP has been installed on your computer and what part of XP is asking for an admin password, the main user account will also be configured with administrator privilege.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Forgot my Windows XP Administrator Password!</b><br /> <p><br /> Windows XP User Accounts applet in the Control Panel functions is to create a password reset disk wizard. Using this wizard, a floppy disk or USB flash drive can be used to create a specific password reset disk for specific user account on a specific Windows XP computer. The password reset disk can only be used with the computer it was created on and it can also be reused to reset the account's password multiple times. However, you need to know the password of the account you want to create the reset disk for, and you must create the reset disk before you forget the administrator password <br /> Here is how to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">reset XP administrator password</a> with the XP password reset disk:<br /> <ol> <li>Insert the XP password reset disk to the computer</li> <li>Click the Use your password reset disk item on the XP logon screen to start the Password Reset Wizard. Click the Next button</li> <li>Follow the instructions to create a new password. </li> <li>Logon with the new password.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Didn't Create a Password Reset Disk!</b><br /> <p><br /> OK, if you <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgot Windows XP administrator password</a> and don't have a password rest disk, you won't be able to create a password reset disk anymore. Instead, there are several things you can try to get access to your windows. <b>SmartKey Windows Password Recovery</b> is your ticket. This password recovery tool not only works on Windows XP, but also on all releases of Windows NT/2000/Vista/ 7 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It works by booting from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset the <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten Windows XP administrator password</a>.<br /> <p><br /> <b>NOTE: </b>If you change the administrator password on a Windows XP or Windows Vista system with the Encrypted File System (EFS), all of the encrypted files will become inaccessible. The password for the Administrator account is used to create the EFS encryption key. Changing the Administrator account back to using the original password should restore access to the encrypted files, but I have never tried it.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>If you only need to blank the <b>Windows XP Administrator password</b>, here are the basic steps:<br /> <ol> <li> Download and install SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software.</li> <li> Burn the software to CD/DVD or USB flash drive. </li> <li> Insert newly created CD/DVD and reboot your computer from the CD/DVD or USB flash drive </li> <li> Reset the forgotten Windows XP password, remove the CD/DVD or USB flash drive and then reboot the computer</li></ol> <p>Having the capability to reset <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten XP administrator passwords</a> and regain access to a locked computer can be a great time saver, but should only be tried by an IT professional. you may probably make things worse rather than better if you use sophisticated system or manipulation tools<br /> <p><br /> <p>Article Source:<a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html">http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html</a><br />

Forgot administrator's password


Hi Reggie,

Please read the entire article before proceeding:

All administrator accounts are created equal, with equal
powers, except that the main adiminstrator account cannot
be deleted and it does not appear on the login (or users)
menu by default.

You do need an alternate administrator account to solve this
problem. You must login to a user account with administrative
privileges in order to access system resources, take ownership
of files and folders, and to change other people's passwords.
(including the built-in administrator account)

Otherwise, what would be the point of any security at all,
if you could bypass it at will.

If you can login to another account with administrator pri'vs,
then follow me. Otherwise you may have to pursue more difficult
options, as explained later.

1) Open up the control panel
2) Open up Administrative tools
3) Open up local security settings
4) Expand Local policies in the LHS folder tree

Check:
Accounts: Administrator Account Status = Enabled
Accounts: Rename Administrator Account = Administrator

this is to make sure that the admin account is enabled,
and has not been renamed. You can double click on these
settings to change them. Is you are for some reason unable
to enable the admin account, you must reboot to safe mode,
where the admin account is always enabled.

Now that you are sure that you have a functioning administrator
account, you must reset the password, since you cannot
retrieve it:


From the control panel, once again open up

Administrative Tools ---->
Computer Management --->
Local users and Groups ---->
Users ----->
Administrator ---->
Right click on administrator ---->
SET PASSWORD

....

This should do it.

N.B.
The administrator account will be re-created, you will loose
1) All settings and preferences
2) Access to any NTFS encrypted files the administrator
has encrypted.
3) Stored network and internet passwords (the administrator's)
4) Personal security certificates.

This procedure is different from simply changing the password,
because you don't know the original, so Windows treats it as a
hostile takeover, That's why you loose access to encrypted files.

If you have trouble starting the computer management Applet,
Run it manually:

START --> RUN --> compmgmt.msc

or

...\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe compmgmt.msc

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

Trick:

If you do not have access to an existing account
with administrative privileges, you may be able to hack in
with and old setup disk from Windows 2000, with
no service packs, or at most XP1

The reason is that Windows 2000 did not anticipate nor
respect Windows XP security.

1) Reboot from the 2000 disk, and follow the on screen
prompts to repair the system using the

SYSTEM RECOVERY CONSOLE.

2) Do not proceed to install Win 2000, make sure you
get out before it asks you to format a disk, if you get
there you missed the prompt and you have gone too far,
Reboot and try again.

3) Once you are in the recovery console = DOS like environment
type HELP, and it will give you a list of commands.

You should be able to create a new user account
(with admin or change the admin password privs)

4) The last alternative is to purchase an XP password recovery
utility, which you run from a boot CD.

Good luck

Martin.

Boot the computer in safe mode and create another account with administrator privileges. Then restart normally and either use the new account, or re-set the original administrator account password.
