    my ex-girlfriend's parents gave my grandmother a computer. computer has a password when logging in. the parents forget the password (actually the parents swear is this one password but the shit doesnt work. ive tried the password they gave me with caps on first letter caps and all that shit.). how do i get pass that password. i tried to do a fresh install but i think something is wrong with my bootable xp disc because the setup keeps on failing.

    90% of people never enter an administrator password when setting up their new computer, you can probable hit ctrl alt delete 3 times, change the username to administrator and log on with no password, from there, you can either change or remove the password on the other account.
