    1st Download Hiren Boot CD and burn the iso.
    2nd Insert CD and restart pc and boot up the CD
    3rd choose Password & Registry tools
    4th Choose Active Pass Change XP
    5th Select the option Search for MS SAM Database on all logical drives
    6th Press enter to continue
    7th choose the user name that you want to clear the password
    8th the username you name you selected should have "Clear this user's password
    9th Press "Y" to save changes and exit and reboot w/o cd and you should be able to boot right into your "user name"
