my friend forgot his windows password (for windows XP). He cant

login anymore. He is the only user in that computer. no other

accounts have been made. Will he install a fresh copy of

windows? or is there any other way so that he could retrieve

the password or log-in in windows?

He might very well be the legitimate owner of the operating system, but we have no way of knowing this and we cannot provide information on how to over-ride this. It is against forum rules

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

If you are asking if you can reinstall the operating CD, the answer is yes. You will need to have the product key to authenticate the installation
