  • Hi Ankit Gupta...


    This will help you ...


    1. Restart you computer
    2.When booting, press F8 and select "Safe Mode"
    3.After getting to the user menu. Click on a user and this time it will not ask you for a password
    4.Go to Start>Run and type "CMD" (without the quotes).
    5.At command prompt type in "cd C:Windows\System32" (without the quotes), I am assuming C is your System/Windows Drive
    6.For safety purposes first make a backup of your Logon.Scr file.. You can do this by typing in "Copy to Logon.scr to Logon.bak" (without the quotes)
    7.Then type "copy CMD.EXE Logon.scr"(without the quotes)
    8.Then type this command, I will assume that you want to set Administrator's password to "MyNewPass" (without the quotes)
    9.Now, type this in (I am assuming that you are still in the directory C:Windows\System32) , "net user administrator MyNewPass" without the quotes
    10. You will get a message saying that it was successful, this means Administrator's new password is "MyNewPass" (without the quotes)
    11. Restart the PC and you will login as Administrator (or whatever you chose to reset) with your chosen password


    Post Ur Result..

    Use superboot cd or ultimate boot cd to break the password.

  • Login to Xp without Administrator Password

    Hi All,

    Here you may know how to login to Windows XP without knowing the Admin Password.

    Please Note: Ride on your own risk. I tested this and it was working for me. But don't blame me if it is not working for you or if it harms your system. So try with proper precautions.

    1. Place your Windows XP CD in your CD Drive and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)

    2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your CD Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”

    3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

    4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now

    5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.

    6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

    It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”

    Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.

    7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.

    8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”)

    9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.

    10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.

    11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.

    12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 (control {space} userpasswords2) at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).

    13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

    Howz it? Cool na.
