I have post a simple method that able to clear windows login password month ago. That method are very simple and will be able to find this solution anywhere online.

After read KeshZone.com post about the winternals password cracking method. I still on my way to test out that software. 1 thing I can said is we need tools to crack or break the password and this winternals software are hard to find in the market, you may download at KeshZone.com also

I have a special method which no need any tools to clear the windows password but it take longer time. This method also easy to find when goggling with the right key word.

What you need is just a windows XP installation CD:

  1. Insert the Windows XP CD and restart your PC.
  2. While the CD is boot, you may see “Press any key to boot from cd”, hit it.
  3. Just like normally windows installation and while you at Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now.
  4. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement.
  5. Setup screen will appear and this will show “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it” . You need to press R to begin the Repair process.
  6. Let the repair run until it reboot, after reboot will be start Installing Windows.
  7. At this stage is the most important part, while the lower left hand side of the screen display Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This step is the security hole and it will prompt you a command console.
  8. At this DOS prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and enter. you will gain a graphical access to your User Accounts same as your control panel
  9. At this stage, you may change the password you prefer or remove the password
  10. If you want to login windows without asking any password, type control userpasswords2 in the command prompt.
  11. After made the changes, close the windows, close the command prompt and continue windows repair. After repair done, you will have your new password to login windows, all the setting in there are still remain same.

This method without need to buy any special tools or software, we just use the security loop hole to crack down the password, but the disadvantage are time consuming. This method is workable, I personally tested before.
