Uh, won't it violate the DMCA if someone writes a program for cracking XP's security? Meh...I'll dig up some links, if this is frowned upon by the mods, well, it can be deleted, right ;) If you had linux know how, you could easily DL a distro that boots from disk and can read NTFS, but, meh, nobody's perfect....Well, maybe this could help... *EDIT* Found a better link. *Edit* http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm
