Hey guys!
I got a custom made machine, which was loaded with Win XP Pro. Since they installed it, i dont know the admin password. I can however log in to admin account, since te pass is saved. But recently, i had to repair XP, and since it asks for an admin pass, i cant get any further! Plz help! how do i get the admin password?

Run computer management (compmgmt.msc)
Navigate to:

- System Tools
- Local Users and Groups
- Users

Right click administrator
Click 'Set password'

Done.

guess i was too hasty in posting! it didn't work, when i boot from the xp cd, and go to repair, it still doesn't accept the admin pass. got one more account, which has admin priviliges, that pass didn't work too. back to square 1!! :(

By default the admin password is created blank. You simply have to press Enter when asked for it. You probably tried that, but just in case...

Can't you just ask the company that you got the machine from? They proberly have a standard one that they always use.

If All else fails download "PassWare".
it has a Administrator password reset for Windows.
As well as a lot of other handy things.
