    how do i get around the admin password for the system. forgot it

    Hi all,

    recently i had a little problem, well quite a big problem really. my xp crashed and i tried to use the repair function of my xp disk.. only it asked me to put in a admin password ...which i have forgotton what i put. i think the password is the same one you need to put in to go onto BIOS etc
    I think i have seen a program that resets this to nothing or default.. anyone know...?

    Here's a couple of links to try for starters...

    The second link calims to ...

    "Change password of any user, including administrator of Windows NT/2000/XP OS. You do not need to know the old password."

    Good luck.
