Yep. Hold down CTRL-ALT and press DEL twice. That will bring up a classic Windows 2000 style logon window. Just change the username to administrator and enter the password that you set at installation.

Windows XP's CTRL-ALT-DEL works like that of Windows NT/2000. CTRL-ALT-DEL in Windows XP DOES NOT serve the same function as CTRL-ALT-DEL in 95/98. It serves many specilized funcitons, such as bringing up classic logon, opening the Task Manager program, or in Windows Classic mode bringing up the "Windows Security" Dialog. XP is deigned to be stable enough where a hard restart, like CTRL-ALT-DEL in 95/98 is not needed.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
