Lets start from the first technique to hack the admin or administrator password..
1. Simply Accessing the Unprotected Admin or Administrator account.
How this hack works ? When we install windows XP on our system we usually rename the username as our name or some other keyword. But windows always creates the administrator account whenever we set up windows XP. So when you create your user account during install , windows creates two accounts that is one is your username account and other is Administrator account. But the main thing is that you will only see the account with your username and the Administrator account is hidden but its there and you can easily access that using the following steps:
Step1: Start your computer.
Step2: Now let it start until the windows user’s username appears as shown in snapshot below…
