    HELP locked out of Windows XP pro

    I was fooling around in user accounts, changed my computer name and also changed the "groups" I was then asked to Reboot which I did. Now I am asked for a password, and the password I had with the user name I had is no longer good! I have tried everything I can think off, I tried ophcrack and logmein, and everyother software out there, i keep getting password cant be found. I tried booting with the xp cd but it ask's for an admin password and the one I had doesnt work. H E L P!!!!!!

    Is this a stand alone PC or Domain PC?

    You have to use a reset disk to change it -
    Try this one Forgot your Windows password? No problems : Password resetting and recovering techniques - [Geeks are Sexy] technology news
    I cant remember the specific one I have used before but I know they work.
