Bypassing Passworded Windows

  1. My brother's passworded computer has some of my music and videos and such things on it but me and his have a really bad relationship where we rarely talk...and when we do it's always arguments...I just want to know if there is something I can do to get past windows without clearing his password (my friend told me about password resetters but that would cause problems if he knew I got on his pc) so I just need something that will just tell me what the password is or just bypass it but keep his password...he is using xp home edition if it matters...

    We won't tell you here how to break into someone's PC, but if you need to, take his harddisk out, note its Master/slave settings, put it in yours as a Slave, and get your data off it.
    Then put it back in your bro's PC with the jumpers set the way it was.
    Alternatively, make up with him, and ask friendly.

    I think trying to form a friendship is much easier than sneaking around behind his back. Besides, he's your brother, not some mortal enemy. I can't imagine going through life hating a family member.
