xp password recovery

Is there any way of recovering a users password on xp pro? I can delete the account through admin settings but apparently all files created by the user will also be deleted.
Any idea what may have happened to the password in the first place. My son has just tried to log on and it keeps telling him his password is wrong. He hasn't changed it and no one had his password to change it.

You MUST be logged in as an "administrator"

Go to start->control pannel->User Accounts... Now click onto the account's name and then select "change password".... You can "overwrite" the password now...
