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.

Help me.. i have forgotton my bloody password :) PLEASE HELP ME :L :L :L just give me words and stuffff :D


Reboot, at startup press F8 to access the safe mode menu. As long as you've never set a password for the administrator you should be able to log into safe mode as the administrator without a password. From here, go into User Accounts and select your user name and reset the password from there. In there future, you will want to place a password on your administrator account to keep someone from changing your password or having unauthorized access to your system.

Need to reset the administrative password for my windows xp desktop


Hi there Allenia,

To reset the Administrator user, you need to right click your My Computer and choose "Manage". The Computer Management window will open. Expand the Local Users and Groups from the left panel and click Users. Right click the Administrator user shown on the right and click Set Password. Click OK. That's it!

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
