In short, boot SAFE MODE and use the Administrator account. Most were set to a blank password and with that you can use the control panel to set a new password for that account.
I have a friend whose User account password no longer works, is there any way to reset it or deactivate it?
There are no other User accounts set up on this computer. Running Windows XP Home.
Thanks in advance.
