Here is one way for Windows XP

first, you have to log on as the administrator
.
Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times, and then type the name of the administrator user account.
In the Password box, type the administrator password, and then click OK.

If the administrator password is set to a blank password, do not type a password before you click OK.



Then you have to RESET the password

Click Start, click Run, type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.

Click the name of the user account that you want to reset the password for, and then click Reset Password.

Type a new password in the New password box, and then type the password again in the Confirm new password box, and then click OK.

Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.

How do I get into my acount


When you turn a pc on and you set a password your are presented with a windows to enter your password. Obviously if you forgot your password or don't remember it well then you can't log. But if you are sure you know your password then your profile got corrupted or your machine could be infected.
You will need to bypass the password with external software.

Lost password after reinstallation


There are a couple methods which you can try:

When the computer first boots Windows you can press F8 to access an advanced boot menu.

From there you can choose to boot the computer in "Safe Mode" which changes the system start-up mode.

There should be a hidden user that appears as "Administrator" that you can select...

(When Windows is installed for the first time there is an option for the "Administrator" password. This password is not required and is usually left blank. If you left the password field blank then clicking on user will log you in automatically. Otherwise, you're required to enter the original password you choose to protect the system.)

Log-in into windows as "Administrator" and create a new user in the control panel that you can log-in to the system normally with.

Restart the computer and log-in under the newly created profile to regain access to your system.



If you can't log-in under your user or the administrator profile because you forgot both passwords you will have to do an advanced recovery process, or wipe the system completely.

(Here is a link for a Linux Boot CD image, burn to a disc and boot to change the Administrator password in Windows XP/Media Center/Server 2003 Systems.)

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RI2D9V90

If this doesn't work you can boot to an alternative recovery disk, Windows CD/DVD, partitioning software, or third party password recovery tool.

When all else fails, you can delete and create a new partition; then you would have to run the Windows setup again to recover your Operating System and drivers.

I think Windows Password Seeker is the best Windows Password Recovery Tool. It is utilized to recover lost consumer and administrator passwords utilized to log on to house windows working systems. it is a fast, simply and effective to recover your forgotten or lost windows password. it could backup the Password storage space document earlier to clearing the password. The backup allows you to restore your computer to the state before removal . http://www.passwordseeker.com

I forgot my adminstrative password for dell dimension 2400 pc (windows xp)


Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.
