Hack Windows XP Admin Passwords

How to Hack Windows XP Admin Passwords.

This hack will only work if the person who installed the machine had miss to change the default password (which most peoplr always does).

This is how it works:
When we install Windows XP for the first time your asked to put in your username and up to five others. Now, unknownst to a lot of other people this is the only place in Windows XP that you can password the default Administrator Diagnostic Account.

This means that to by pass most administrators accounts on Windows XP all you have to do is boot to safe mode by pressing F8 during boot up and choosing it. Log into the Administrator Account and create your own or change the password on the current Account.

This only works if the user on setup specified a password for the Administrator Account. This has worked for me on both Windows XP Home and Pro.

Can anyone recommend the top performing Network Monitoring utility for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: [url=http://www.n-able.com] N-able N-central network security software
[/url] ? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
