Hi,

I have two accounts at my Win XP Professional:

* First, I made one account on the fresh installation by
myself
* Second (domain based) is made by IT stuff for me for
corporate purposes.

The problem is that I have forgotten my first 'personal'
account password. How can I reset it? The second
(corporate) one is available for me to log on.

I have read some solutions on the net but haven't tried ony
so far. They suggest to rebbot: F8 / BootMenu / SafeMode
and to type in username 'adimistrator' without password.
Then they said it's easy to reset the password. Is that possible?
What do you suggest in my case?




Best regards,
Vladimir Stefanovic
