If you want to log on a computer but have forgotten your windows password, there is no cause for alarm. The following options are aviailable to help you access the system:

1) Verify that you have typed the letters of you password in the correct case.

2)Acess a password hint on the Welcome screen.

3) Using a password reset disk.

4) Log on as administrator to assign a new password to your account.

Verify case sensitivity

Verify that you have typed the letters of your password in the correct case. Perhaps you entered the correct password, but the CAPS LOCK key was on. Turn off the CAPS LOCK key, and then retype your password.

Use password hints

A memory aid can help remind you of your password. If you have entered a password hint in your user account, you can access the hint on the Welcome screen. To display the hint, click the question mark (?) that is next to your user account.

7. The change will take effect the next time that you log on.

Note If you want to keep your existing password, you must enter it as the current password, enter it again as the new password, and then enter it one more time to confirm the password.

Reset your password

If you cannot determine your password by using these methods, you must reset the password. You can do this if you have previously created a password reset disk as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 894901.
If you do not have a password reset disk, I would like to introduce Windows Password Key 8.0 . it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It creates a password recovery CD/DVD,USB Flash Drive for home, business and enterprise. It works perfectly to reset your Windows password.
