Re: How to use Recovery Console on Windows XP - Administrator password
If the computer came new with Win XP preinstalled, the Administrator password is created by the user during inital activation. If it was upgraged, from say, Windows 2000, then the Admin password should be the same as the Admin Password for the prior install. Unfortunately, unless Microsoft has a "skeleton key" for XP, there really is no way to reset the password unless you have a second user with Administrator privledges. Maybe somone more knowlegeable in, um, circumventing Win XP security has a solution that I don't know about.
