    Actually, I was able to run my computer in safe mode with command prompt, and instead of using the command prompt window, I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete to open task manager, and chose to run a new task of explorer.exe, then went to Control panel, User accounts, and then removed the password of the locked account and restarted.

    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).

    right click the command prompt and click "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR"
    and there you go....

    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.

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

    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...
