    I forget the admin password and I can't login. Luckily, I already backup all files in there, So if you can't help me solve this problem, I need to format it.

    you can do it via command prompt(cmd)

    go to Start > Run > “cmd” [Enter], then enter:

    net user <username> <password>

    eg.
    net user asim1 password

    There is no admin reser password if you can't log in to your machine. That is one of Microsoft's security features. Even is someone re-installs the Os it still would ask for the password. You're better of formatting the drive. Sorry tough luck.

    You can do it as Kunalbhatia said.Alt+Ctrl+Del (twice), type administrator on the upper level and press OK. If the admin pass is required yet, so use boot cd to reset the pass (hiren boot cd, matrix cd). But if You manage to login, then go to comp. manage and reset the admin pass.

    Boot into safe mode - username administrator and the password is blank - as in nothing.

    XP comes with a hidden administrator account that is only accessible through safemode, or by going to start - run - control userpasswords2. The "control userpasswords2" command from the run box opens a hidden user administration interface.

    Any XP computer you can sit down at, you can take control of. That is unless the password for the hidden administrator account has been changed.

    When you install XP, it prompts you to create an administrator account - but you get to name that account. Such as "Billy" and billy is an administrator. But what the install script does not tell you, is that a second account was setup. And that second account is really named administrator.

    Microsoft added this hidden account because so many people were locking their selves out of their windows 2000 and NT4 computers.

    ~kev~ is right, there is a hidden administrator account that is only accessible only in safemode unless otherwise the password is set during the installation process.

    I wonder why nobody mentioned this great and free open source tool called Offline NT Password & Registry Editor:
    http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/

    Use that and you'll be fine :) It saved mine and other people's asses many times :D

    Password reset disk is the best tool for Windows admin forgotten password recovery. If when you forgot and don't have one, most people will choose to create one by themselves through downloading program or software, no matter free or commercial. For free program you can consider Ophcrack or PC Login Now. For commercial software Anmosoft Windows Password Reset can help you. For Anmosoft you can learn from:
