I installed a home computer with Xp Pro and after 3 weeks the person gave me a call and said that the computer needs a password for the administrator and you can not log in.
I can't recall the password or that there is one.
I connected the hard drive to another computer and there is only one profile 'administrator'
Is there a way to find out what the password is or to change it?

Due to the fact that we cannot verify the truthfulness of your request, we cannot help you recover any passwords for any system or software installed on your (or anyone Else's) computer. you may very well be asking for legitimate help in a legitimate situation but we cannot be sure of this. for all we know you could be a child trying to get into a parent's account or worse, someone trying to gain access to information that you have been explicitly denied access to by someone of higher authority

If you have any problems with this please contact a Moderator or an Admin..


it's very probable that someone that uses their computer set the password....passwords do not get set on their own
