XP Home?

Boot safe mode and use the administrator to change the password.

No go? Look up NTPASSWD on Free, changes the password too. Too hard to use? Look up

Then you'll have to use NTPASSWD.

It's what I use but some find it intimidating. If so, head to for something friendly.

The safe mode method is not usable for XP Pro.
