Lost XP Password

by on March 14, 2008

Q: I need to know how to bypass the Windows XP log on screen. The screen has username and password and it currently prompts me to change my password because the old one has been expired and I can’t get pass this screen because I forgot the old password. I can’t even get to the start button without entering my password. I used to be able to press cancel and go straight to the desktop but for some reason that wont work anymore. Please help what can I do?

A: At this point since you do not know the password to login to Windows XP you will have to rely on the Password Reset Disk if you have created one. If you did not create one then unfortunately you will have to reinstall Windows XP because the odds of cracking the password for Windows XP is very small.
