By rubsmong ·
i have this client who has forgotten his administrator logon password, he is running on winxp pro and he has no other user accounts even his guest account is not enabled, i have tried logging in safe mode, vga mode but to no avail. I have also encountered a similar problem in win2000 where the clients logon password had expired and i still dont know the way around it. Can anyone help b4 i go the reinsatallation route?

Piece of cake, you need the 'offline NT password & registry editor' at http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

It is ALWAYS good practice to create your own account and give yourself admin priviledges and NOT use 'administrator'. Also always create a Password Recovery disk.

There are plenty of tools on internet to crack passwords. Otherwise you will have to reinstall.
