Default password problem

Hi every one, my computer did not have password, I changed the admin name now
the log in window asks for password, I removed the battery, F8 doesn't work to go to safe mode. I installed a password recovery software in another computer and attached
the hard drive to this computer, is there any way to find and remove the password in that drive? I use XP.

Default Re: password problem

try this site you may need to try more than one, but one of them should work.
I've used one of these to get a forgotten win7 password.
But make sure you read the instructions carefully.

Asus M4A88T-M/USB3<>PhenomII X4 965e<>Asus ENGTX460
Seagate 320GB/1TB<>Win7 Ulti 64Bit<>Antec900

Google UBCD4WIN. It is a set of IT tools that run under a stripped down version of XP on a CD. There are some password recovery tools there that have helped me out in similar situations.
But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard... to be the Shepherd.
