My sister has a Dell Demension Desktop C251 computer running Windows XP. Her 10 year old daughter put a password to log onto windows and forgot the password. There were no users on the log in screen before, when the computer booted up it went straight to the desktop. Is there anyway I could recover or reset this password? There are no other users that can be logged into to even get past the Windows User Log In screen. Thanks for any help in advance. Thanks!

-If there's any more info I need to give I will do my best to give it.

Many times you cannot boot into normal Windows mode because of wrong user password, you can start Windows XP in safe mode and login the default admin account to bypass other user password.
