Forgetting Windows XP logon password is really an annoying problem. Although we can reset the password with a password reset disk, but most computer users forget to create a password reset disk in advance. Many users may re-install their Operating System or ask help for professional because they cannot find better ways. In fact, you can also use Windows XP installation disc to reset Windows XP password. You can follow the steps below.
