If not, you can follow the 2 ways listed as below:

1. Through the default Administrator account in Windows XP

One of the biggest differences between Windows XP and Windows 7/Vista is that the built-in administration in Windows XP in enabled by default. If you never password protect this account, you can log into this Administrator account and then reset your forgotten password in seconds.

1. Start the Windows XP-based computer to the logon screen.

2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice. It will bring up the classic logon dialog box.

3. Type “administrator” in the username box and leave the password box blank, press Enter.

If you never add a password to the Administrator, you’ll be logged into Windows XP. Then you can reset Windows XP password by taking below steps.

4. Go to Start button and select Run box.

5. Type “lusrmgr.msc” in the Run box and click OK. It will bring up the Local Users and Groups window.

6. Expand the folder titled Users. A list of your Windows XP user account names will appear.

7. Right-click the user name that you want to reset password of, then select “Set password” option.

8. Click Proceed to continue.
