Re: Windows XP Administrator Password
I do not endorse products because some work well, some do not. I don't know your system or its compatibility issues. I don't know what it will do to your system but I do have one program that might work to help you get your password if all else fails. And I do not know if it's even still available. It's called "PC Wizzard 2006" at www.pcuid.com and I don't know what it costs if any.
Once loaded and installed, run it. It tells you everything you wanted to know about your system and what you don't need to know. Better than WinXP "system info". Under "configuration" click on the "locks" icon and all your passwords will be listed.
Unless some one else has a better method thats what I would do.

HI there. If you forgot your username and password try login with the administrator account. Username is administrator. Usually the password is blank. After that you can reset your passwords from Control Panel, User Accounts section.
If at the logon you use the welcome screen, hit twice CTRL+ALT+DEL, after that you can type administrator in the username textbox.
Are you logged into windows or just the bios settings? Are you running XP or Vista? If you are in XP and you logged in by another user name and don't have and files under the Admin account I wouldn't worry about it as long as you have Admin priv on the user name you are logged in under.
you should be able to contact dell support and they should have you on file. when you first bought the computer and logged on the web you had to register your computer. dell should have this information on file, also because each windows program has a register number they might also have you on file. i would try this and it should solve the problem.. please rate this and also please reply back if it doesn't get solved..thanks
On the welcome screen
PRES CTRL-ALT-DEL thrice or untill welcome screen changes to fast user switching screen.
Enter user name as "administrator" and leave password blank
if the above doesnot work also enter password as "administrator" this time .
If u succeed u hav admin rights and u can now againg delete add any user .
While you lost windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to remove windows password when you lost user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there is no way to change it, you have to use tool to recover administrator password. Yesterday evening, I forgot my Windows administrator password. At last, I used Windows Password Seeker to retrieve my Windows password successfully. It's worth a try. http://www.passwordseeker.com
