Bypass Windows XP Password or any Windows Password
Recently, to get a computer to work, I
had to bypass Windows XP password. I actually ended up removing
it completely. This is another reminder to make sure you make
proper backups, although the methods I describe here is really
reliable, it doesn't work all the time.
First, before you attempt
these methods, I urge you, think long and hard and try to remember your
password. Use these methods as a last resort. This is just
in case anything goes wrong and you end up having to reinstall Windows
all together. If you follow directions and read prompts, you
should be okay.
To use this method, you'll need to be able to burn an image file on a computer.
Step by Step Bypass Windows XP Password
First, you'll need to get yourself a freeware program called Offline NT Password and Registry Editor.
The download link is about half way down the page. After
you have the ISO disk image file downloaded, burn it to a disk.
you'll need to boot your computer off of this disk. Put the CD in
the drive and start your computer, when prompted push a key to boot
from CD. If you are not asked to boot from the CD, reboot the
computer and enter the BIOS. Change the boot order so it boots
from the CD before the hard drive. You can change this back later
if you need, or just leave it.
You'll see a bunch of text go by
as the disk loads, once it's finished, if you have multiple hard drive
partitions, you'll have to pick the one that has Windows on it. Don't
worry, if you choose the wrong one, you'll just need to restart and
pick another number.
The next question it will ask you, is the
location of the registry, select enter to choose the default, almost
all the time, the default is correct. Select enter again to load
this information. Now, once prompted, push enter to edit user
data and Password.
Next, type the name of an administrator whose
password you'd like to clear and push enter. You can choose the
option you like, I simply clear the password at this option, you can
add it back once your in Windows. Typing 1 and pushing enter will
do this. If it went well, you should see password disabled.
Then type ! to quit and push enter, push q and enter to exit.
You should now be asked if you would like to save, select y and
That's it, all done, simply remove the CD, restart
the computer and you should be good to go. If not, repeat the
steps selecting a different user. After reading this you might
think it's tough to bypass windows xp password, this is going to be out
of your league. It is really easy with the software linked above.Go from
