  • problem with Admin Password in XP

    the problem is that I remember my password but still the XP doesn't accept it.
    I tried to reset the password with ERD Commander and it still didnt help

    I succeeded only once to enter windows but then after a restart I did
    the Windows XP doesnt accept the password he did accept just a minute ago.

    from then and on, all the tries I did with ERD Commander didnt help

    XP doesnt accept password. any password.

    I don't know what is it.


    tnx for the help guys.

    I believe you neglected to read the forum sticky post otherwise you wouldn't have posted this question.

    Everything you need can be found in one of the links within the thread.

            You are going to have to read to do this, we can't do it for you. I sent you a link to a site that gives you instructions. If you can't figure out how to do it by following said instructions you're screwed.

                  Hi,

                  Try this :

                  This is straight for a brain child. It makes so much sense that no one ever thought to do it.
                  Enjoy. Also beware to change what you have done. Or any machine that you did the hack on will
                  show what you did when the screen saver comes up. The only hard part is finding your way to C:\prompt or ms-dos. So begin.

                  If you can log in as an account , drop to DOS start -> run -> cmd, at the C: prompt type the following (assuming default install locations)
                  C:\> cd \winnt\system32
                  C:\winnt\system32> copy logon.scr logon.scr.old
                  C:\winnt\system32> del logon.scr
                  C:\winnt\system32> copy cmd.exe logon.scr
                  Now log off the machine, logon.scr is the screen saver that will kick in after 15 minutes of not touching the keyboard/mouse at the logon screen. Wait 15-20 minutes and a DOS prompt with FULL SYSTEM rights will pop up, then just to
                  C:\> net user administrator <newpassword>
                  and then log in with the new account.
                  Try this, might work, as long as he didn't change default permissions on C:\winnt and C:\winnt\system32 you should be golden.
