By default, XP Home has the password blank for the Administrator. This may be different on OEM versions. Log on to the machine with another Administrator level account. Click Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2 Put the check mark in Users must enter a username and password......... (you don't have to leave it). Highlight the Administrator account and click Reset Password. You don't need to know the old one to do this.
