When Windows XP comes pre-installed there is no opportunity to create an Admin Password. Anyone booting into Safe Mode can access the system by simple clicking on Administrator. Is there a way to create the Admin Password?

Windows XP Pro SP3

Boot into the Administrator account in safe mode. Go to Control Panel > click User Accounts > choose the Admin account and create password.

Make sure that it is a password that you will remember and keep in a safe place.
