Windows: How to reset the administrator password?
I want to login to my Administrator account in Windows XP, but I forgot the password. I really don't want to reinstall the OS. I remember some years ago, I was facing a similar problem and I was able to boot using linux from a USB device, save a "password file" from the Windows directory, and use brute force on it from another machine to find out the password.
Is there a smarter way to reset or recover my Windows XP Administrator password?
