what you need to do is go to someone you know running windows xp and have them to make you a password reset disk but this will not work unless your girlfriend has pass word reset enabled if she dont sorry you will have to lose every thing in computer to see if she has it enabled on the login screen click her name and type in any kind of word for her password dont matter what you type and press enter it will say forgot your password and see if they is a hyper link there that says password reset disk if not you will have to restore and erase the whole thing. but if it shows that link go get a password reset disk and click on that hyper link at the forgot password screen if you dont know of anyone that has a password reset disk e mail me at email@example.com and i will email you the disk and all you got to do is save it on a floppy disk and take it to your girlfriends computer i will give you instructions in a email when i send you the disk on how to use it
i have limited knowledge about winxp but on the other hand i have a g/f that changed her start-up admin password and forgot what she changed it too, there is some stuff on the computer that i wish not too lose. is there a way to by-pass this? ive heard that we can do it under F8 and chose something but everytime i try to use safemode it keeps restarting in a neverending loop.
