The first thing you can do is try accessing the Administrator account. To make this easier, boot into Safe Mode, and login as Administrator. Turn on the computer, and keep tapping F8 as soon the the bios/post/splash screen is passed, you have to do this quickly. If you do this correctly, you'll see the Windows Advanced Boot Menu, hightlight the Safe Mode using your keyboard's up/down arrow keys and press enter to select and start booting. Wait until you see the the Windows xp welcome screen, select "Administrator" and proceed, if you see any warning message, click "Ok" or "yes", once you are logged in, right-click "My Computer", select "Manage". The Computer Management window will open up, now locate "Local Users and Groups", click the "+" sign beside it and again click "Users", look at the right-pane, you'll see your username (the username you've forgotten your password), right-click your username, and click "Set Password" or if "Reset Password" is available, click it. Set a new password and there you go, you now have reset your windows xp password. Please note that if you have any "encrypted" files or folders, you may be having problem opening them, but if you don't know what is encrypted in Windows, I guess you didn't do that.

Once everything is done, restart your computer and login to your account.

If in case your Administrator account has a password, you won't be able to do this, in many instances, the Administrator password is "admin" (without quotes), so you can try with it, otherwise you'll need a tool like Ophrack or Nt Password reset tool to get this done.

Let me know if you need further help..

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to hack win xp admin password by guest their is error "access is denied" i hv try safe mode its no working


While you forgot windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there's no way to change it, you should use utility to recover admin password. Last week, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to remove the Windows password successfully. It's worth an attempt.

Forgot password


You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.

I forgot my password


Try this:

1. Enter a computer that can link to Internet. Download a Windows password recovery tool (I recommend Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 ) and install it on that computer. Note that: there is a ISO image file. Burn the file into a CD or a USB flash drive.

2. Eject the created CD/USB and insert it into the locked computer.

3. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your computer's Setup to make it boot from CD drive or USB drive) and then followed the process of instructions. Just a few steps, the old password was removed.

4. Now login Windows and set a new password.
