Windows XP Password

So my sister is a moron. She changed her password, went on vacation, and now is back and has totally forgotten her password. She has access to the guest account so her comp is still usable but no installations allowed! is there a way to fix this?

No sig here folks.

She should be able to get her password hint in the user accounts section of XP.

Ah well.

For future reference, the ntpasswd bootdisk lets you reset Windows NT/2000/XP passwords. (But read the warnings on that page.)

Holy Shit! I'm a muslim and didn't even know it.....

The search for the ultimate signature continues apace. I have journeyed from the peaks of Nepal to the depths of oceanic trenches. I have crossed deserts, jungles, swamps, savannas, steppes and frozen wastelands. I have consulted with seers, swamis, sages, scholars and savants. The peregrination proceeds purposefully.

How exactly can one be "racist" against a religion? Just wondering.

Much like how many people equate the word "terrorist" with Muslim or Arab.

well, considering that the top 6 nations with the largest muslim populations aren't even arab and that only one of the top ten (egypt) is, we SHOULD be surprised, but, sadly 50% of Americans also thought Mexico was NORTH of the US...so what does that tell ya?



Country # of Muslims
Indonesia 170,310,000
Pakistan 136,000,000
Bangladesh 106,050,000
India 103,000,000
Turkey 62,410,000
Iran 60,790,000

Arabs are the generic brown race from the Middle East.

Muslims are people who worship Allah.

All are united in their hatred for Western Civilisation.

actually, arabs are that generic race which varies from white to brown to pitch black...and some them worship western civilization so much they claim to be part of it.

If you start in safe mode, doesn't it give you an extra administrator account you can get into? I seem to remember mine does at least, but it also seems kinda weird.
