Windows Password

The password I use for Windows XP is not working and I may have made a mistake in recording it...the 'tip' isn't helpful. How can I find out what the password is?

I'll make you a boot CD with a program that will reset the Windows password and post it in a few mins.

click here enter the 3 digit security code in the box near the top and press the download button. When the CD boots press 1, then select the drive Windows is installed on. It will then search the SAM database and show a list of usernames on your computer. Select the username with the password that you want to reset and make sure there's a X in the reset box. Then press Y to save and Esc to exit. Restart the computer and your Windows password should be gone.
