I am not good with computers so how do you get past the password on windows XP?

Which password? Screensaver? User log-in password? Not that i know, just will help someone else who does know so they dont have to ask.

What do you mean?
If you mean other peoples passwords than I doubt there is anyway we will know.
And I doubt you mean hack into them if your not good with computers.

easiest thing… if u have the time to wait that is. pull the plug and open up the system. u will find a little battery in there about the size of a watch face and u want to take that out and let the cpu stay like that for a few days. of course ur gonna loose the clock time (no biggie) and all teh passwords, id take out the hard drive(s) just to be on the safe side so u wont loose too much stuff. or if u have a burner… burn the important crap and leave the hd in.

Little battery shaped thing?
I highly doubt that any password would actually be stored in a different memory from the rest of the computer, it is just an operating system afterall. Perhaps the system time is on the motherboard but no type of physical memory. All passwords, as far as I know, sit in the windows directory either in it or in the System sub. They’re encrypted so you can’t just look at them of course. You’re acting like Windows XP is part of the entire computer. I guess there is a chance that they’d put that kinda shit in there, but what happens when someone rips out hteir HD and puts in an entirely different one? The data would eventually build up I would imagine. Hell no, its not stored in something on the motherboard. You’re on crack, or you’re just trying to get these little kiddies to fuck up their computers.

I’m thinking the good old classic keystroke recorder would be your best solution. This is just a program that would record keystrokes and let you see them later. The problem with this is, it wouldn’t really work if you’re talking about the username login. Not a windows program at least. If this was the case, you’d probably have to have the program work in DOS, which is entirely possible(I’ve seen security programs that would require a password in the DOS startup), or even a floppy could be read that included the program. I’ve even seen something where you could attach a little device to your keyboard, hten attach that into your computer and it would record up to 10,000 keystrokes which would work on logins. Your parents or whoever don’t HAVE to know about this.
Since you say you’re a newbie, you might have some trouble doing some of this stuff. I suggest you ask a programmer. The stuff isn’t too hard if you’re just looking for a screensaver PW, etc.. Its just a matter of using API wihch can be done in something as simple as VB. There is some call whihcy ou can send to the system with a ceratin key and the system replies with a boolean yes or no, yes or no on whether or not its been stroked. Then if it has, its recorded stroke after stroke. A few things must be arbitrarily dealt with, like ASCII 8(backspace).. thats simple, just cut off the last character(if one exists, that could be a bad bug). Its that simple. If you’re looking for that DOS program or floppy, you’ll probably need to find a more skilled guy who can work with C++ or something. It can be done of course, but it might not be easy.

you dumbass. the little battery thing was just to fuck up the bios on your computer so it never starts again.
