How to bypass Windows XP login passwords from scratch

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.

on my guest account it when i execute the net user administrator * command and type in the password and confirm it, it says:
system error 5 has occured.

access is denied.

any way around this??

thats what happened to me too, i think its because the guest account is not an admin

if you cannot run command prompt on limited users or guest accounts just open notepad, and type in start. save it as cmd.bat and open it and it should open up command prompt. if it isn't that being the problem, then it is most likely the ophcrack thing they described above.

most guest accounts do not have the access requirements to make changes using the command prompt If you really want to get in to windows - you can download an illegal windows password finder program
