What is the default password for Windows 2000 and Windows XP?
If my Windows installation memory serves me correctly, there are no "default" passwords for enabled accounts as Windows 2000 and XP require an administrator password upon installation and the guest account is disabled by default. If you still have administrator access, you can simply go to Setting/Control Panel/Users and Passwords and reset a particular account's password or run a program such as
Proactive Password Auditor
. If you don't have administrator access, check out
