Hey people, sounds dumb but I am locked out of xp, took down the pc a year ago and do not recal having a password, now it says I do. Tried safemode and it still asks for a admin password. Tired using administrato as a password. Not work, not hint question.

I do not have a xp cd to repair, reformat is not wanted.

Ideas?

Be aware you will need to understand the questions it will ask.
This has always worked for me in resetting a password.

For Shaw I don't know, but I suppose it's like any other router and you will need to log into the router and go to the proper menu to change the WiFi security pass.

I can remove a password from any Machine Unless You have the Virus that writes a new password on every reboot, That one takes more work.

If you haven't fixed it yet:

Download and put that on to a flash drive, set the bios to boot from USB and follow the directions to "recover" the password.

Dont need 3rd party software to crack an xp password. God cracking those passwords has been a joke for the longest time. Even with win 7/8 its rather easy to do.
