Hi guys bit of a poser here. I have just taken control of a laptop which has XP Pro operating system. The person who owned the laptop before me has forgotten the LOG ON TO WINDOWS password. So after pressing Cntl/Alt and Delete I can not get passed the username /passwordscreen. Are there any ways to bypass this so I can get onto windows and change it to a username and password I know.

Thanks is advance..I hope

Hi there. The whole point of having password security is to refrain others from bypassing such passwords - therefore there are no legal ways which I, nor others, will be inclined to show you, sorry.

Hi there

I'm afraid it's against G2G policy to assist in the bypassing of passwords. I apologise for this but I'm sure you can understand the reasons why. :whistling:

not a problem I have cracked it, would have been a waste of $4000 if I could not but microsoft pages helped me. Admin minus a password helped and saved me losing all the infor by not having to reformatt.
