A friend of mine has forgotten his password and is now locked out of his p.c. can he get round this without having to reinstall his o.s.
He is running win xp home edition. I do not believe there are other users so he must be logged on as administrator.so noone elseis available to change his password, any ideas would be appreciated
many thanks

Unless he created a Password Recovery floppy he is left with two options I'm afraid. Guess or re-install Windows.

Yes there are ways, but to reveal them on an open forum such as this, you will appreciate, should not be done, for obvious reasons.
