    windows xp password

    fackin xp...

    for some reason when i start up windows, it asks me to change my password. now as far as i know i never had a password to begin with. i cant log on without changing my password and i cant change my password without knowing what the original was in the first place.

    has anyone had this or somethign like it happen to them before? anyone have any ideas how to get around this?

    ps. id really rather not reformat if i can help it

    well

    i think maybe somebody accessed your computer and made a joke on you. Or at least i hope that. Otherwise you'll need to remember the administrator password...

    Did you try it with a blank pwd?

    nope, i doubt anyone did anything to it. no one other than me and my parents have had access to it. and a message had been coming up saying i would have to change the password in x number of days whenever i logged on

    i tried leaving the password blank, and just clicking ok or cancel and none of it worked

    if you never had a password to begin with then you should be able to leave all the fields blank. dont type in anything. Just hit ok.

    legacy: thats what i used to do, but now windows wants me to change the password, and wont take no for an answer

    MIKECORRIERO: i cant get to my desktop or anything, unless maybe in safe mode...

    ill try tonight. ive also found some 1337 h4x0r!ng type stuff (well maybe not that 1337) im gonna try, apparently theres a bug where if you boot from a windows 2000 cd when using xp you can bypass all passwords using the windows recovery console
