If it's completely hidden, how can you access it :/?

Try Start -> Run -> lusrmgr.msc and see if it's in there...

Or somthing like that.
As I have an idea.
Just to type in the password when it comes up run as.
Even tho i am the admin on my pc, i have tried that and it works :cheesy:
But that was when that app was initially released :P I dont know ... a year and a half to two years back.

But you need to be slick to make that change.
Use ur acc, run the app just when your mom needs the pc, she tries to log in multiple times and fails. You say "wtf i was just on it ... let me try." You log it (the app disables itself).
You log off again and let your mom use her account.
Just hope she doesnt find that text file or you are so grounded :refuck:
Hide it in you my docs and make it private (assuming that you are using a ntfs system) You of course need a password on your account to do this but so does using the story i just gave you :dodgyomar:

RE: Help!! // How to find out admin password on Windows XP
This may sound stupid, but why not simply explain to you mom why you want access to the PC? After reading this thread (and others from before) I get the gut feeling that your mom has big reasons to restrict your access and that she has big reasons for not trusting you or whatever.

Doing all this stuff will not do you any good in the long run, as she will find out about it and she will not be happy. Then what? Grounded? No computer for a long time?

Talk to you mom about it all... Say you need a PC for homework and don't wanna mess up her computer (as you like to "experiment" also). If you're lucky (and behave :p) you maybe can even get your own computer in the end which you could mess with. Afterall, it's the holiday season...

She won't let me be admin
Can you help me with these questions?
1) What is the default Administrator password?
2) Is there a way that I can get rid of the restrictions
3)or is there away to still be limited but be able to install programs.

I have treid talking to mum but she's being stuborn.
Thanks

First of all you probably dont want her to find out if you hack her so dont do it but theres a way to be a power user on windows XP just like windows 2000

ok go to desktop -> my computer -> right click -> manage -> system tools -> local users and groups -> users -> double click on your user -> member of -> find power user and put it in there

make sure you are loged in as an admin on the computer ;)

hope this helps

Thats why i told him to search for the threads ..... they all say these same things everytime but the best thing is to ask for the privs rather than get access illegally cause she will find out eventually.
Mabbe she will see some new installed stuff/the user cp thing .... then you are screwed.
