Im locked out of a windows XP pc, and the client has no clue as to what the admin password could be! I have came across some tools, but I want to know what everybody is using lately. What tools do you guys use for resetting your local admin password? besided wiping it out.

There is a boot disk you can download at:
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

that will let you reset the password of any account on NT4, Windows2000 or XP.

Just follow all the default settings which are for the admin account. Used it many
times with great success.

They also have a bootable CD image you can download.
