Don't Worry if You Have Forgotten Your Windows XP Account Password

Setting up a password on a Windows account has probably been one of the most significant moves for securing an account, whether it is for securing the innumerable email accounts, or various applications and most importantly for the computer systems that most of the people use today. But the same advancement has been plagued with some major problems. And the most significant of these problems is that a password once set can be hacked if not changed on a regular basis, say once a week or month at the maximum. No matter how strong the password is, it may get hacked if the user doesn't change it often. This brings the user to the state, where, he may forget the password in case he doesn't use a particular account for a few days or so. To handle such situations, some ways have been devised to password recovery, so that the user can access his/her account.

A password is like a key that needs to put in the right way for a user to be able to get into his/her account. Otherwise, he/she is locked out, away from his files and important data. Let us see how a user can access his/her Microsoft Windows XP account after having forgotten the set password:

The first and the foremost method is to try and recall the password. Was it your pet, somebody's maiden name, a phone number, or somebody's birthday date, address, something related to your past? Try to remember, and give it your best shot. That would certainly save you a lot of energy and money.

No, you cannot remember? Don't worry! In case, there are other user's logged on to your system, and somebody else has administrator rights, you may seek their help to reset your password. If this doesn't work, check the next step.

Do you remember that you created a password reset disk for your Windows XP. If you did, then, just pull it out! This is the right time to use it! But, in case you do not remember anything about it, then probably you didn't create it, and in case you did create one, you may not be able to recollect where you kept it! So forget it!

Now what? Are you planning to perform a clean installation of your Windows XP? Well, there is another option for you, before you decide to clean install the system! Opt for Windows Password Recovery software.
