Use  reset tool is the best way to break windows xp password.

If you want to find a free way, just adopt Ophcrack , the most famous free tool in the world

Learn where to download Ophcrack and how to use, click  Crack Windows XP Passowrd

It's fine for very short passwords, but if it's longer or contain symbols and a mix of upper and lowercase characters, the default free rainbow tables won't cover it all (especially that the brute forcing feature only covers up to 4 chars).

Really good article, but I break Windows administrator password from dos using another tool called SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software, what do you think of that?
The trick works only if we haven't change the built-in admin password since you first install your Windows system. If you have change the admin password and then forgot it, you need to get a Windows password reset software to remove the password.

This method just can reset the user account when you have access admin.

If you don't know built-in administrator password,this method can not help you.

Long time ago , I was confronted with the password problem. Finally , my friend Jane introduce the Windows password Rescuer.It help me access windows.

What happens when there is an administrator's account password? This will fail. You're assuming XP Home where no one setup a password on the admin account...

Then remove the bios battery in the CPU & then start the comp. It will work.
No, it won't. Again - if the admin password was set, this will not work. This will. http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/
Easier: while its booting up, tap F8, and then select "boot in DOS" or something like that. From there, delete all the *.pwl files(just Google how to do it in DOS). Next time you reboot it, type in whatever password you want. Then it will ask if you want to keep that password. Your welcome.
PWL files don't exist anymore :(
Oh ya. Sorry, I did it on a Windows 98 PC :/

You could just use a linux live boot cd if you are trying to get data off of it.
