XP password generator

XP has a hidden password generator.

  • Go to Run on the Start menu and type ‘cmd’ (without the quotes)
  • A DOS like command prompt window will open. You must see the flashing cursor.
  • At the command prompt type ‘net user administrator /random’ (without the quotes)
    This will change your administrator password, so make note of it. In any case, that should at least help restrict Windows some if the machine isn’t using a strong password already.
