If you have a reset disk you need to follow this steps:-
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. On the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name that you want to use, and then press ENTER.
  3. Click Use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts. The Password Reset Wizard enables you to create a new password for your user account.
  4. In the Password Reset Wizard dialog box, click Next.
  5. Insert the password reset disc into the CD drive, and then click Next.
  6. Type a new password in the Type a new password box, and then type the password again in the Type the password again to confirm box.
  7. In the Type a new password hint box, type a hint for the password, and then click Next.
  8. Click Finish, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.

Now you can use Windows using your own user and password which you have set.

To reset the password first log on to a computer as the administrator, than try the following steps.
  1. Log on as an administrator.

    • Restart the computer.
    • Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times, and then type the name of the administrator user account.
    • In the Password box, type the administrator password, and then click OK.

  2. Reset the password.

    • Click Start, and then click Run.
    • Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
    • On the Users tab, click the name of the user account that you want to reset the password for, and then click Reset Password.
    • Type a new password in the New password box, and then type the password again in the Confirm new password box, and then click OK.
    • Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.
