if your logged on now go:

in a command prompt type (net user username *)
use "" if user name has spaces example

If you are using XP home, do this:

at the welcome screen, press CTRL ALT DEL twice. This will bring you the windows classic logon box. in the username type "Administrator" w/o quotes. and press ENTER...

Windows XP Home installations does not set an administrator password by default during setup, therefore, you can login to the Administrator account without any password...

Simple.

That doesn't work, well it doesn't if you log on and press Windows + L to
switch users. Thought Administrator only worked on Safe Mode in XP Home? I haven't tried.
