If XP Professional, reboot and press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice in a row - log in as the user "administrator" and for the password, just press ENTER. (blank password..) May/may not work.. If you can get logged on as ADMINISTRATOR, simply go in now and change the other users password to something you will now know. Other options... Look here: http://www3.telus.net/dandemar/lostpass.htm and/or try these..
