How To Disable Password for Windows XP?

Windows passwords are a necessary evil. They help protect our systems, but they can also be a real pain in the neck. Employees leave, IT workers quit, IT consultants fail to properly document deployments. Regardless of the cause, you’re left with a locked account and perhaps a locked system.
A password is not mandatory for Windows user accounts, although it is a highly desirable security feature. Without a password, only a click on the user icon is required to login to a user account. You can disable (remove) a Windows password using the Control Panel by following a few easy steps.
Here I would like to share with you the common method on how to disable or remove  Windows xp password with ease in Safe Mode.
Safe Mode is a Windows utility that allows you to use your pc outside of your regular Windows session. Using this option is convenient to modify or remove system entries or any software malfunction. Now try to remove Windows xp password with this utility.

1. Turn on your computer and press “F8″ during startup, prior to the Windows logo appearing.  Select “Safe Mode” and press “Enter.”
2. Log into your Windows profile as you normally would. Go to the “Start” menu and launch the “Control Panel” applet. Click “Add or Remove User Accounts” from the “User Accounts and Family Safety” section.
3. Click the Windows profile in question and select “Remove the Password.” Enter the password currently assigned to the account and press “Remove Password.”
4. Go to the “Start” menu and click “Restart” or “Shut Down” once you are finished disabling the Windows password in Safe Mode.
Ok , now you can disable your Windows password for Win xp. In addition, there are many other ways to do so, like take a Windows password recovery tool instead. As I know, it is well recommended to remove Windows XP password with Windows Password Unlocker, Ophcrack or Windows Password Breaker. You can also reset Windows password with a short time and keep all the data security.
