  1. ""you have to sign in as administrator to get to the password. why don't you do that, find out what they are, and then do your clean install. i'm afraid you won't find any help here to hack passwords, etc. it's a security breach and against the site's policy."""

    just fyi , im no hacker , and as my question was ""where in xp pro are your passwords saved or stored ?
    im about to do a clean install and can't remember some of my
    passwords..could someone please help me ? thanks alot !!!!""

    It was me that closed your thread.

    We don`t normally help with requests for password help.

    This is because we have no way of knowing if the request is legit or not.

    In any case, there is absolutlely no need to to start ranting and raving about it.

    You have now been given a link that may or maynot help you.

    That`s about as much help as I`m going to allow.

    Thread closed.

    I agree. There is information on XP password recovery out there, and many of us here know it too, but we can't give out that level of information carelessly. With knowledge comes power, and with power comes responsibility - what would be the point in passwords if everybody could crack them?

    Besides, it's a long process, and you'd be better of just picking new passwords really. (assuming it's your computer and your installation.)
