Exclamation XP Doesn't Recognize My Password
I am trying to sign into my laptop as the Administrator, but it does not recognize my password. I am next to positive I am using the correct password. This is an old laptop that I rarely use. Are there any password reset programs that will let you sign into a regular user account without Administrator rights and reset the Administrator password without having to burn a CD or use a USB memory stick? What are the best free programs?
