How To Re-access WinXP After Losing Your Password

by Carmen Maranon

What do you do when you lost your WinXP password and lock yourself out of access? Here is the answer:

Step 1:

Windows XP Pro:
At the log-in screen, press Ctrl/Alt/Del twice quickly; 
Type "Administrator" and leave password blank.

Windows XP Home:
Reboot, hitting F8 as BIOS info goes to black;
Select Safe Mode at the menu;
Select Administrator, leave password blank.

(Note: For Home the Administrator account isn't normally shown & in Safe Mode you have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys twice to show.)

Step 2:

Go to User Accounts in Control Panel.
Select the user and change the password.
