Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

what OS are you trying to bypass? Is it XP, 2000, 2003 Server? Is this system on a domain?

There are programs like In Code We Trust or the Ultimate Boot Disk that you can boot from a CD with that will allow you to reset the administrator password on these systems.

If you have accessibility options enabled and no hard disk encryption, try this…

Boot to installation media and get a cmd prompt

run the following commands:
copy c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe.old
copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe


When prompted to login, click the accessibility button (bottom left) and place a check next to screen magnifier.  This should launch a command prompt window with system level privs.  You can now *safely* change the administrator’s password.

    Manually locating the Windows XP product key from the registry is nearly impossible due to the fact that it's encrypted.Anyway,you can get your windows product key with "password genius"easliy.

    Login with the default administrator account Step 1: Start Windows PC Step 2: When you can see the Windows login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box Step 3: Type Administrator as Username and leave the Password field blank Step 4: Press the Enter Key and then you can be able to login the default windows administrator account which is it created by default when install windows. Note: When you input the key combination Please don't put the cursor on any account. And if you change the name or password before, you cannot login by this way. Or try Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 to remove any admin password in one seconds!
