Boot your system with the Windows XP Setup CD. A screen will come up to welcome you, then you'll have an option to accept the EULA agreement, etc - proceed as required.
Then you will get an option to install XP afresh or "Repair your existing Windows XP installation". Choose to Repair by pressing “R”.
It will then start the repair process by first copying files the files needed.
In a few minutes, the setup will begin to restart your system and when it restarts remember NOT to press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…”. Else setup will start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and setup will resume from where it stopped.
It will start doing other tasks and will show a small progress bar with a few details in left hand corner.
Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing Devices“, remember to press Shift key + F10 key in your keyboard.
This will open up a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press the Enter key.
This opens up the “User Accounts” window which you normally get in the Control Panel.
Cheers!! You can now easily reset any account's password.
