  1. hi
    Lately I fooled around with my Win XP Pro. and accidently deleted my administrator account which contains my name .

    Now I am left with one and only user account and that is the default "Administrator" .

    my problem is i forgot the password for default administrator and i dont have any other user to log in

    HOW can i recover and relogin to my PC ?

    Any help would be appreciated

    THANK YOU

    Mike

    On the Microsoft Web Page there is a article about this problem. There are instructions to make a CD which can change the administrator password.

    He can't login to any account, so he can't run that command. :)

    I think ophcrack is your best hope. It's an open-source Linux-based LiveCD that boots off your CD drive and lists all passwords for all Windows accounts.
