This is my first instructable, so don't be too hard on me.
This instructable basically sums up most of the login bypassing methods posted on Instructables.

Step 1: The golden disclaimer

First, the standard disclaimer that goes with any good Instructable: This is to be used for instructional purposes only, and I am not liable for any damage or destruction to you or your computer that may occur from attempting this Instructable. In other words, if you delete your registry or mess with a school computer and get arrested, it's not my fault. And don't use this to get into someone else's computer either.*cough*

Step 2: The easy part

Ok, now to start.
If you have a login page like the one in the intro, go to step 2. If you have a login page like this one, it should be relatively easy to get into. Unless the default administrator account has been changed, all you have to do is type "Administrator" or "administrator" as the user name and the password will be either blank or "password". Then press "OK" and you should be in.

Step 3: The nastier part

If you have a fancy windows login page, things are a little more annoying. First, click "shut down" to shut down the computer. Then turn it back on. As soon as the screen turns on, press and hold F8. After about 10 seconds, a boot options menu will pop up.

Step 4: Safe mode

Now, in the menu, which should look like the picture below, select safe mode and press enter. It will show a whole bunch of gobbleygook for quite a while, (which you don't need to know anything about)and then it will bring you to the login page. This time though, there should be an account named "administrator". Click it, and either type "password" or nothing, whichever one works. If you don't get in after that, you're bummed.

Step 5: The guest account method

If nothing so far has worked, but there is a non-passworded guest account, you may have hope yet.
Go into the guest account, click the start menu, click run, and then type in "cmd". A black window should pop up.
Then, after typing "net user administrator *" , press enter and you will be given directions to create a new password for the administrator. After typing in the new password, press enter and close the window. Log off, then get into the administrator account with the new password.

Step 6: If you get stuck

If you try this and it says "access denied", you're out of luck. :(
(If its got security, you probably shouldn't be in it anyway.)

Well, that's the end. I hope this was useful, and if you have any questions or suggestions, please leave a comment.
Long life and happy holiday's. I got it. Txs so much.

Nice guide! Though we can start Windows XP in safe mode and login the default admin account to bypass other user password, I still like to use third party software such as Windows Password Recovery Tool to bypass xp password. <br>Easy (3 steps: Download &ndash; Burn - Reset); Fast (Only 3 minutes even less); Safe (Read-only and non-destructive design, no any data loss or damage) This is an easy way to recover Windows XP password: <br>http://www.wimware.com/how-to/reset-windows-xp-password.html
For bypassing windows xp password, you can do it with the following methods: <br> <br>1. Using a password reset disk is the simplest way to get back in business if you forgot your Windows XP password. Of course, it assumes that you had the forethought to create a password reset disk when you set up your computer. <br> <br>2. Logging On as an Administrator <br> <br>For most Windows XP systems, there is a built-in &quot;Administrator&quot; account that can be accessed without a password. But first you have to start your computer in &quot;safe mode.&quot; Follow these instructions, and you should be back in good graces with XP in a jiffy: <br> <br>3. Ophcrack (http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/) <br> <br>If you're feeling brave, or like to play hacker, you can download the free Ophcrack program from another PC, and burn it to a CD. <br> <br>4. Windows Password Unlocker (http://www.passwordunlocker.com/windows-password-recovery.html) <br> <br>If you can not reset or bypass the xp password with the above methods, try with the professional and powerful tool.
I have ever forgot my Windows XP password and locked out of computer. I was able to deal with it until my friend recommended me Windows Password Key ( http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/windows-password-recovery.htm ). It is really helpful. Only took me 4 minutes and 3 steps to bypass forgotten Windows xp password.
In windows 7 use xp mode, hack from there. You may just get lucky enough. <br> <br>P.S. I will not be responsible for any wrong things you do from my comments or instructables, it will be your fault.

If you have accessibility options enabled and no hard disk encryption, try this... Boot to installation media and get a cmd prompt run the following commands: copy c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe.old copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe reboot When prompted to login, click the accessibility button (bottom left) and place a check next to screen magnifier.

In XP Pro, if you have fast user switch turned on, you could just press ctrl+alt+del two times.
lol, Exactly. Another fun way to do this is to have a moment alone with the PC while it is logged in to any Administrative account. Then press windows+R to open the run box. Now type controluserpasswords2. Now feel free to blank or change any account password on the computer.
control userpasswords2 (just so you know correct format)

I think you guys have forgotten that we're supposed to be discussing how to bypass Windows XP login passwords from scratch, not Windows and Vista popularity contests. Anyhoo, is it possible to get into an account without using command prompt? The school set a password on a user account that used to be open to everyone. Now my saved stuff is locked in it.
I would recommend talking to the school staff about it. They could probably help you. If not, you could try to look at other instructables on using Ophcrack or such, but I don't reccomend it as I've had bad experiences with my school and computers before.
