Gday If i do this because i have forgotten my login password in XP professional will it erase all my files etc?
Open command prompt, and paste the below code. You will have a new account called NEW. Be sure to not the Random password generated, it is case sensitive.


First run this command

net user NEW /add /random

Then run this command

net localgroup administrators NEW /add

Log in, then reset your old password.

Greetings,

We are terribly sorry but Kioskea cannot help you to recover your lost password, because you can't prove that you are the legitimate owner. . Everyday computers are stolen, although you may be honest, we do not wish to help potential criminals.

The reasons are explained in this link:

Best regards
