    Why not just open the user accounts control panel and click on your user then click on change password?
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Start > Programs > Settings > control panel > User Accounts > Change an account > select an account > prevent the forgotten pass word or create a password

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type "mmc" (without the quotation marks), and then click OK to start MMC.
    3. Start the Local Users and Groups snap-in.
    4. Under Console Root, expand "Local Users and Groups", and then click Users.
    5. In the right pane, right-click Administrator, and then click Set Password.
    6. Click Proceed in the message box that appears.
    7. Type and confirm the new password in the appropriate boxes, and then click OK.

    Through going to the control panel and click User Accounts, then edit the password through there.

    Command line does it better:

    Code:
    net user [account name] [new password]

    Hi
    There is way you can change log in password on Windows XP machine. Went to star menu then select contrel panel, select user, then select which user password u want to change, after selecting the user select change password, 1st put your old password, then put the new password then enter.
