    Hello, I am running WinXP(SP2)
    I have accidentally locked my admind password using "net user" commands in command prompt. problem is I'm not sure what i changed it to.

    I only have Guest Priveleges on my PC.
    I deleted my other admin account, so my only admin account is locked.

    I read somewhere about burning a boot disk (to reset the admin account password), but I'm looking for a different alternative. Does anyone got any help?

    That might be my only option, but I hope not.
