Lost Windows XP password? This could put you in big trouble especially if you do not have any other OS configured for dual boot and this will prevent you from accessing your files as well. But there are many password recovery tools which can be used even if you do not have access to Windows.

PCUnlocker is one of the best and top rated password recovery tools, which could be used to remove lost Windows 8/7/Vista/XP passwords. This tutorial will guide you through the steps to unlock Windows XP administrator and user passwords with PCUnlocker Live CD/USB drive.

Part 1: Create a Bootable CD or USB Drive

  1. Download the self-extracting .zip archive of PCUnlocker using a working computer with internet connection. Unzip it and you’ll get the pcunlocker.iso file, which contains a WinPE operating system along with the PCUnlocker software for you to reset Windows XP password.

  3. Press F10 to save your changes.

Part 3: Remove Windows XP Password

  1. After booting your locked Windows XP computer from the CD or USB drive, you’ll see the main interface of the PCUnlocker application immediately.
