    Hacking my XP Logon

    I know this isn't your average security question to anyone other than maybe a hacker, or just someone as dumb as my self but... Does anyone know how to hack into Windows XP?

    The reason is i've been experimenting with system accounts, and have basically now locked myself out of my own computer. I do have access to 4 of the accounts but not my admin one. I have read other posts that have said logon one of the accounts and open the Command Prompt and type

    net user Accoutname Newpassword

    but i keep geting error number 5

    Any suggestions?

    - Adam

    Welcome to Techzonez.

    Have you tried booting into Safe Mode, Admin acct? Try that and if you can get in then you should be able to change or delete passwords.

    I have the same problem as Cameeb, but I don't know anything about computers. I was wondering if someone could walk me through the process.

    Thanks

    when your computer reboots, hit your "F8" key repeatedly - boots into safe mode. Choose "Admin" or an admin account - possible "admin" may not be passworded.
