Forgotten Password Win XP Pro

  pkc223 18:46 03 Nov 2004

I'm currently the administrator for my daughters computer running Win XP Pro. As I haven't had occasion to use it for ages I've forgotten the password. My daughter has a limited account. Now she wants to load some software and I'm stuck. Searched the Microsoft site but couldn't find any help. I would appreciate any advice

Don't worry. The easiest way is to use there login codes.
USERNAME: Administrator
PASSWORD: Administrator

These are set by windows

I found that a format and reinstall from the xp pro cd solved the problem for me, I did not even get asked for the key number or my 98 cd. But did have to reactivate xp which i did online no problems [ my cd was a upgrade cd retail version] after reinstall i was able to set anew password.
