    hi guys
    is there any way one can access a computer running WinXP when there's only one user account (Administrator) set up and the password is forgotten?

    Hi Silmanno, ;)

    If you created that user account, there is still the default "admin" account.

    To access that account:
    Boot in safe ... access the admin account and change/delete that accounts password from there (same proceedure / control panel - user accounts). Tap F8 while booting to start safe mode ... option 1.

    If that is the problem account, here's another option.

    I Forgot My Administrator Password!

    HTH, ;)
