    I have XP pro...and I did the exact same thing once> What I did was: I had changed my password...then rebooted, couldn't get in! Well, by accident I must have hit the CAPS key, cause after 20 mins. of sweating...i finally got in. If you know you have the right password...try hitting the caps key, then enter it. If not, you will have to reinstall...unless you have the GUEST acct. active, you can get in. XP is a very secure OS...and there is no cracking in any backdoor! Believe me...i feel your pain, i almost had to reinstall.

    No cracking, that's a laugh! :D

    I guess you never found Off-Line PW Editor, a boot disk that allows you to blank the Admin password of NT/2K/XP and freely access the system.
