Hey general,

I was browsing online and i found this page.
I must warn you that I am not sure how safe this is and you may cause some damage to your computer if used improperly. This was a quick look but perhaps its a starting point for you. If you do not feel safe doing this then please don't. Admin or nathan may have a better solution

click on your control panel

click on any user
after on the top left look for prevent forgotten password
follow the steps and create disk
when logging on, insert disk and when it prompts you for password select an option alond the lines of forgotten and then use password reset disk <_<

When your at your Windows XP login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete a few times. It will change to a "classic" logon screen. Type Administrator for user name and leave the password blank. This will work unless you've set an administrator password.

Once you've logged in the passwords for the other users can be reset.
