Answer: Don't worry - if you forgot Windows XP password, there are many methods you can used to find a Windows XP password.

Method 1: Try To Guess your forgotten Windows XP Password.

Don't laugh! You'd be surprised how often this works. So, before you jump into any high tech windows password recovery solutions, try your hardest to remember what your forgotten Windows XP password may have been.

Most passwords, even complicated ones, are often tied to common things in our life, such as people, places and things in our personal and professional lives.

Could your Windows XP password have had anything to do with?

  • Your name or the name of your friend or family member?
  • Your birthday or your loved one's birthday?
  • Your home or office address?
  • Your lovely pet's name?
  • Your favorite food?
  • A frequently dialed telephone number?
  • A combination of any of the above?

Method 2: Use Your Windows XP Password Reset Disk

Assuming you were proactive and created a Windows XP password reset disk at some point in the past, use it at the XP logon screen to change your password.
Your Windows XP password reset disk will still work even if you've changed your Windows XP password since creating the disk. Follow these steps to reset Windows XP password.
Step 1: Click use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts. The Password Reset Wizard allows you to create a new password for your user account. Then click Next.
Step 2: Insert your password reset disk into drive A, and then click Next.
Step 3: Type a new password in the Type a new password box, then confirm the password. Click Next.
Step 4: Click Finish. The Password Reset Wizard quits, and you return to the Windows XP logon screen.
