Default How to get around Windows XP login password?

I am wondering how one could get around the password that comes up when you log into Windows. I know you can get around it by booting in safe mode and logging on as the admin. But say the admin account is password protected too, how could one get around the passwords and log into Windows XP home?

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

So many options for this. Windows XP is the easiest OS to hack. I hope Vista is not this stupid I usually just boot up with a HiRen's boot disk and reset it with one of the utilites it provides.
