    I am wondering how one could get around the password that comes up when you log into Windows. I know you can get around it by booting in safe mode and logging on as the admin. But say the admin account is password protected too, how could one get around the passwords and log into Windows XP home?

    I am wondering how someone without the password can do it. i.e. someone take my computer and does not know the password and is trying to bypass it.

    In a computer that you have never touched before and all accounts are password protected?

    Not really. I think the OP want to know if an unsecured laptop can be compromised and the answer is yes. Even soemone with basic skill can can get into a Password protected system.

    The key is to protect the system from being stolen.
