ok, heres my question, my uncle just upgraded to windows xp pro on his laptop. it wont accept his old username/password combo. it wont let him click cancel or anything. is there anyway to get around this?
lol......well the only quick way to resovle this problem is to re-install... If u have stuff on your comp that u dont wanna loose just install over the top of your existing Xp/os. It might be an idea to remeber your password........also check if u have caps lock on mate, becasue the password is case sensitive
Take a look at THIS. I have used this utility on several occaisions without any problems. But I am going to warn you that you can make it impossoble to logon if there are failures during the process. Only use this as a last resort. Do not and i stress do not use this to hack into anyones computer. Only use this to reset lost passwords from a machine that you own.
Looks like a useful tool if you have exhausted all other options, tho pretty complicated... everyone else seems to be doing it, so I will stress that this is a last resort and although it can be misused, I think open_source posted it with good intentions.
I also have forgotten my password for XP Pro and just wanted to get a bit of clarification that if I re-install XP on my machine after upgrading to SP1 will I lose any of the saved/stored docs, programs, etc on my HDD.
