Create a password reset disk in Windows XP.

I know that you always remember your password, but in case of someone or your wife hit your head because you spent too much time on your computer and you don’t remember your password anymore ..... here help from Microsoft.

To create a floppy diskette to recover your password follows these steps:

  1. Click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts.
  2. Click on the account which you want to create a password disk.
  3. Click Prevent a forgotten password which starts the Forgotten Password Wizard . This is found under Related Tasks.
  4. Insert a blank, formatted disk into your floppy drive , and click Next.
  5. Enter the password in the Current user account password box.

To use the recovery disk, at the Welcome screen

  1. Click the user name whose password is on the recovery disk.
  2. Click the question mark button.
  3. Click use your password reset disk.
  4. This will start the Password Reset Wizard.
  5. Just follow the wizard's instructions and you will be able to set a new password.

Always watch your back, so you don’t get hit on the back of your head ............
