My friends kids bought her a computer at a discount store, but it has no discs with it and is set up for one user with a password. Is there anyway to backdoor this and at the very least create a new login for her? I almost forgot...it is running Win XP...

Try logging in as Administrator with no password. I doubt it will work but its possible since this was the default at one stage if you didn't change anything... I think. But I think they changed it as of the newer versions/updates. Or maybe I'm just plain wrong :tazz:

But I think logging in as Administrator is your best bet. Try the passwords: <no password at all> Admin, Administrator, Password

Otherwise there is no back door and you're looking at a reinstall... I'm presuming you don't need the data on it, but if you do, and it isnt encrypted, you can get it if you want to stuff around.
