WindowsXP
Try this:

1- boot to the windows xp/2000 CD ,

2- press enter to start setup ,

3- press F8 for the license agreement ,

4- when you get the option to repair the current installation press R to do so ,

5- let it run through and for windows XP wait until it reboots and is installing, devices then press shift F10 to open a command prompt.

6- In windows XP either type in "nusrmgr.cpl" w/o quotation marks at the command prompt and press enter. This should open up the user accounts applet in XP

7- select the users and change or remove their passwords accordingly, apply settings and close the control panel windows and command prompt windows so that just setup is running again. ,

8- let the inplace upgrade finish

The user should now be able to log in when it finishes and not have to reinstall the programs like in a parallel install.

Boot into Safe mode and choose the Administrators Account... not your regular account.

Now go into the Control Panel > User Accounts > click on your regular account and remove the password.
