Is there a way to bypass the Windows XP login and reset the password of the administrator account?

Had this problem many times.

Read this (http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/) site. Its the old pnordahl site.

Its worked like a charm everytime i've had to use it. Be warned, there is an element of risk though.

I've successfully changed the password using Catweazle's suggestion.

Thanks for your help.

slitaz ophcrack for alphanumeric passwords or ntcrack to simply bypass. Or, google windows repair xp password. Lifehacker has a link-while installing you can get a command line and get MMC open.
