    I am running Windows XP home w/SP2 installed. I have several modules I believe have been corruppted and want to do a Windows Repair. When I boot up from the Windows CD and select R for repair, it asks me for the Administrator password. I have tried every password I can think of including leaving it blank, and it says they are all invalid. After the third invalid attempt, it reboots again and I have to start over. How do I find the correct Administrator password or is there a way I can establish a new one so I can perform the Windows Repair. Thanks for any help!!
