Administrators Password

  rawprawn 16:37 19 Jun 2003

Yesterday I again crashed my computer,by messing about as usual in my cavalier fashion. I tried to do a repair with the CD & went through the whole thing with no problem until right at the end it asked for the administators password. I typed the logon passwrd, which as far as I know is the only password I have ever used. I bought the machine new & nobody else uses it.This was refused & I finished up having to completely reinstall XP. Can anyone tell me where I might find this password, or create a new one so that if that happens again I at least can enter the correct password for my own computer.

By default there is no password you just have to hit return.

Many thanks, I thought that was the case after I had started to reinstall, but I wasn't sure. At least now I know.

I had the same problem and simply hit return - only to be told it was wrong. Probably a good idea to set a password up in case of further disasters.
