I'm trying to use the recovery console. Once in it, it prompts me for a administrator password. All acounts on this computer don't have a password. Help!

space then enter :D

or just enter

or if your using Pro, the password of the 1st account you set up.
I have XP Home Edition. I tried leaving the password blank and that didn't work. I also tried setting up a password on my Windows Logon and then trying the recovery console and that didn't work.
On home its normally just space then enter ... did that not work?
I tried space and enter to no avail. I've tried all of my passwords that I like to use for other things. I set up a password on my windows logon and tried that, didn't work. I reinstalled the recovery console, no go. Argh! It's probably something simple too. There are two administrator accounts on the computer and one for my kid which is a limited account. My account has a password and my wife's doesn't.
I did a search on yahoo on this and I found out that there is a sometimes a problem with the program not recognizing the password even though its correct. So the solution is to download the latest Windows XP updates. Hope it works. Thanks for your help!
