how do I remove xp password with console?

By The_Parasite ·
I want to change my windows user password with the console.
I know I can use "net user USERNAME NEW_PASSWORD" to change the password, but what do I write to remove the password?

So far I've done this in the user menu, using the "set and remove password" options, but want to use console to do it faster.
thanks in advance for your help!
