Tips for a great answer:
Here is a
simple way to access Windows XP with Administrator rights and privileges if you
have password protected your User account on your Windows XP system and can't
remember the password(s) to login. Whenever Windows XP is installed on a
system, it creates a default account called "Administrator" and by
default this account is not password protected. Therefore, if you bought a
brand name computer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq or Sony)or you have installed

You can log on as an administrator to assign a
new password to your account. To do this, try Method 1.
Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button
after you switch on until you get the Safe Mode Option.
Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.
Click through several self-explanatory
screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the
primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA
adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options,
while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (e.g. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.
