My daughter forgot her password and now we can't get into her pc, she is running winxp pro and is the only user on the pc. Can anyone help me get in and create another user?

Search on google for :

linux boot floppy for windows nt

The result will give you a site where you can download a linux tool so you can set a new password, see link below :

There will be an administrator account set up at the initial install. It's worth trying to log in with user as "administrator" and password left blank.
