Administrator password on Windows XP Home
  

Hello to you all,

I'm stuck on the Windows page where it asks me a password, I've never been there to do anything out there.
I went in "failure", and then either I can not find the password. Knowing that even the administrator does not work.
This problem came after an installation of software (Registry First Aid Platinum),and since then I've never managed to open Windows ... blocked the password ...
I have Asus laptop with Windows XP Home ... Moreover, my CD does not work anymore ...
Could you help me? Thank you in advance ...

Re: Administrator password on Windows XP Home

To recover a password from the Windows XP You need to have the CD or Floppy ,If you have the CD, all drivers are included. If you use the floppy, you need one or more of the driver floppies, too.

follow the following steps to do it.
  1. Get the machine to boot from CD (or floppy)
  2. Floppy version need to swap floppy to load drivers.
  3. Load drivers (usually automatic, but possible to run manual select)
  4. Disk select, tell which disk contains the Windows system. Optionally you will have to load drivers.
  5. PATH select, where on the disk is the system?
  6. File select, which parts of registry to load, based on what you want to do.
  7. Password reset or other registry edit.
  8. Write back to disk (you will be asked)

But then, I have a message that tells me that this is not good ...

But you understand that in order to carry out this mission, you must:
1 - you have to burn ISO image
2 - burner
3 - CD operational (it is USB)

Apart from that there is no salvation!

Re: Administrator password on Windows XP Home

Hi Adler,

What interests me is the method with the USB drive and not the CD-Rom ...
I have been on different sites, but I block quite quickly...
This bothers me most because I never face this kind problem before, and now I'm stuck with this password, even now i have tried out lot of password variations but I am not able to crack down.
