Hello,
I have windows xp professional with service pack 3. I haven't used this desktop computer in some time. I forgot what my password was. I have tried using a downloaded disk to reset the password but it did not work. I have tried going into safe mode command prompt but in only gives me the choice to go to micrsoft xp professional. THere are no choices to go to adminstrator. I have tried everything. I do not want to have to reload the operating system because then I will loose my pictures that I have on that computer. Can any one help or give me some advice. I am very fustrated. THank you

Greetings,

We are terribly sorry but Kioskea cannot help you to recover your lost password, because you can't prove to anybody on this forum that you are the legitimate owner.

The reasons are explained in this link:

Best regards
