How to reset Windows XP password

Some time ago my confusion because I forgot the password of my windows xp, the computer is a lot of data that is important. And I have had to reinstall windows so that my data can be safe. Earlier when I am browsing I try to find in google how to open windows xp password, and finally I found, there discussed how to reset password windows xp

How to use?
First please download the iso file from this link ~ pnordahl/ntpasswd/ After downloading, please create a bootable disk in the burn to the blank CD.

How to make the CD?
Unzipped, there should be an ISO image file (cd??????.iso). This can be burned to CD using whatever burner program you like, most support writing ISO-images. Often double-clikcing on it in explorer will pop up the program offering to write the image to CD. Once written the CD should only contain some files like "initrd.gz", "vmlinuz" and some others. If it contains the image file "cd??????.iso" you didn't burn the image but instead added the file to a CD. I cannot help with this, please consult you CD-software manual or friends.

The CD will boot with most BIOSes, see your manual on how to set it to boot from CD. Some will auto-boot when a CD is in the drive, some others will show a boot-menu when you press ESC or F10/F12 when it probes the disks, some may need to have the boot order adjusted in setup.

Just boot this CD and follow instructions.
Usually, just pressing return/enter should work, except some
drivers (ISA for instance) may have to be loaded manually with
the 'm' menu option after boot.

The password reset and registry edit has now been tested with the following:
NT 3.51, NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server,Vista and Server 2008.
As far as I know, it will work with all Service Packs (SP) and
all editions (Professional, Server, Home etc)
Also, 64 bit windows version (XP, 2003, Vista, 2008) shold be OK
