  1. Is there anyway I could find an administrator password for the wimdows XP proffessional. I'm using the 6 floppies to recover a drive. The drive is from Windows XP prof. an I using a XP home.

    thank You

    I don't think this is possible, as far as these boards are concerned. There are ways around this, but those won't be discussed on the boards. I'm sorry.

    It IS possible and there's actually a couple of ways. Do some reasearch and you'll find the answer.

    If the file system is FAT32, you can do it manually. Otherwise, you are best off using a password removal program.

    I'd discuss more, but many people have an objection to this kind of information being on the board. I know there are legitemate reasons etc... I do this a lot where I work... But the answers are out there. ;)
