How to create password reset disk
Windows offers a simple way to keep data private by providing password protection, but if that password is forgotten then you could wave goodbye to your personal information.
Fortunately, Windows XP has a little-known feature called the Forgotten Password Wizard, which creates a disk (floppy or USB) for use in the event that the original password is forgotten.
To create the disk:
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.
2. Select your account name.
3. Under Related Tasks, click Prevent a forgotten password.
4. Follow the directions in the Forgotten Password Wizard to create a password reset disk.
5. Store the disk in a secure location, because anyone using it can access your local user account.
