Does the password work when you boot to Safe Mode?

Can you change it to something else?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I believe it should.

You might try this MS Knowledgebase article - How to log on to Windows XP if you forget your password or if your password expires

I would try setting all passwords to "no password". Clear the password box and press enter and do the same in the second password box. You should be able to create new passwords once you resolve the problem.

Maybe someone else knows some password "tricks" that would be helpfull.
