Well, it works on XP Pro; never on XP Home.  Reboot to Safe Mode, it'll
probably work on all XP; you can't count the number of installations
I've found that never set the Administrator password.

But it doesn't matter; get P. Nordahl's Offline NT Password & Registry
Editor (http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/, or the Trinity Rescue
Kit (http://trinityhome.org).  You can crack any Windows password.  (I
haven't tried these on Windows 7 yet.)

It's only marginally harder on a Linux system; just boot with the distro
