Password Recover for XP

UBCD4Win has a tool that will allow you to reset any account password, requires WinXP SP1 or SP2 to build, this will also give you full read/write access to your drives allowing you to copy any data off, remove virus's etc..

Hope these links help :thumbsup:

Right on Kourvoisier!(the name of a brandy or wine?)there is a Linux CD to boot
into Regedit,or change passwords at option screen. The commercial version is
'Unlock XP CD'.However with the XP install CD there's a trick too ,refer to
