    Unhappy *HELP* My sis forgot XP password

    Well, my sis changed her XP password (on a different PC) day before yesterday and since yesterday morning shes been trying to recall it. I was called and upon little inspection found that there was no default Admin account and she's sure brute force will not be able to detect her password as it is not in english....

    Is there some other way by which the password can be reset or recovered?

    password recovery

    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_recover.mspx

    "If you forget your user account password, check your password hint. (Your password hint is located on the Welcome screen beside the password prompt.)

    If you have a password reset disk, you can use it to create a new password for your account. Your personalized computer settings will be retained. For more information about using the Forgotten Password Wizard to create a password reset disk, click Related Topics.

    If your password hint does not help you remember your password and you did not create a password reset disk, you will need to have someone with a computer administrator account create a new password for you. For security reasons, a computer administrator cannot recover your password if you forget it; he or she can only create a new one for you."
