Resetting XP Administrator Password

Advertisements

Was upgrading my management desktop recently and somehow forgot the admin password – nightmare!

Anyway, found this excellent resource:

http://www.pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

You download a CD image, create the CD, boot to the CD which loads a linux variant and the utility. You can then follow the menu instructions to reset the admin password – their FAQ was useful.

Worked perfectly and their CD now sits in my utilities box.
