Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Please help me..
To reset the administrator password you need a boot CD with a password reset tool on it. You can download a CD image from this site: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/
There is a walkthrough and instructions on how to burn the CD and use it on that same page.
I actually carry this CD around with me on the job, because people forget their passwords all the time. It's quick and effective one you get it burned.
