I cant bypass the login - forgot the password in Window XP

Jan 15, 2020 6:11PM PST

Hi, i totally forgot the password for this old computer a long time ago.
Now i've tried all the tutorials on youtube..runing in Safe mode, type in administrator and leave password blank but i still can't login to this. would somebody help with another solution,

- Another option is a way to Install windows 7 on this computer without have to login to it? (i dont need any date from this computer)

Is well discussed. Look up NTPASSWD as it is free, many tutorials and reduces this to a 5 minute job.

The old Windows does NOT have to function to install a new copy of an OS!
