Help, Help. I have forgotten my PASSWORD and am now locked out - is there anything I can do? I have tried several times with what I thought was the right PASSWORD and Oh! Dear, no joy. Does anyone have any advice they can give me.

First check that CAPS LOCK isn't on.

If it isn't that simple but you know the Administrator password (or there is no Administrator password) click here

Failing that click here

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. For windows 2000 wait until it is registering

components 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. For windows 2000 type in "control.exe" w/o quotation marks and press enter. This should open up the user accounts applet in XP and the regular control panel in 2000. ,

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.
