Windows XP Administrator Password

I inherited a Windows XP box that I didn’t want to reinstall, but I didn’t know the Administrator password. I found this linux-based Offline NT Password & Registry Editor. I burned the 3MB ISO to a CD, booted from it, and had no more problems.

I’ve been told that it’s possible to reset passwords in Safe Mode, but I’ve never tried it.
