  • Windows password help?

    Question-

    On the main log in page for Windows XP- a young man I know forgot his password and his hint doesn't mean anything to him - so he has managed to lock himself out of his system.

    How does one get back in to reset those things?

    Only some with admin rights on ht epc can get in to change/reseet it...

        Have him boot into safe mode (F8). If it's not pro, it will give him access to the Administrator account. From there, he can go into the Control Panel -> User Accounts, and change his User Account password.
