Are passwords on windows xp stored in some kind of hash file that I can find on my computer? Im asking because i set a password for my account and i honestly cant remember what it was. i dont know how i forgot because i usually use the same thing all the time but i cant remember it. anyway, i tried booting in safe mode and removing the password but since apparently im the admin on the computer i cant remove it without a password. can someone please help me find my password so i can change/remove it



[SOLVED]

just so others reading this know... BIOS or Operating System's passwords are there for the purpose related to Security and Privacy to protect the legitimate owner of a machine. While there are many locations on the Internet that might help you learn about managing passwords for a machine's BIOS or Operating System, we at G2G do not assist in what amounts to hacking past a machine's Security and Privacy safeguards

thanks
