Is there really a way to VIEW w windows XP password? I've never heard of it, if so, please do tell:-)?

I always sue the pnordahl offline passwd editor to reset a forgotten admin password, it has never failed me if I simply use * to blank the password and then boot to administrator using a blank password, from there on it's easy as cake!



Which password editor worked for you and did you actually recover then password or did you have to change it?
