    I'd suggest reading here on this guide by Kimsland

    Other then that, we have a policy on bypassing passwords. Basically meaning that we can't teach you how to 'crack' into systems :)

    I would like to introduce you a very good windows password recovery tool 2.0.

    It not only supports XP, 2003, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password

    You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:

    1. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool 2.0 ISO file
    2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
    3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
    4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.

    Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

    do you forget windows password|? If you do, you'd better reset the password with the third part password recovery tool. As far as I know, windows password unlocker is safe and easy to use. An .ISO file included in windows password unlocker. So, you just need to free download windows password unlocker, which is available at many download sites like softpedia.com

    There's something called an ultimate boot CD, which allows you to reset the administrator password, among many other options.

    *Note to moderators: please delete this if I'm not allowed to post it. My apologies.
