I have to ask: How does one perform an operating system upgrade
"accidentally?" There are too many deliberate steps required, starting with
deliberately inserting the Vista Upgrade installation DVD into the DVD
Anyway, there are no supported downgrade methods, so finding the
Administrator password -- which will not have been changed unless you
intentionally did so -- won't help . To regress from Vista to WinXP, you'll
need to format the hard drive and perform a cleaning installation of WinXP.
After backing up any data you wish to transfer to the new OS
installation,, simply boot from the WinXP Home installation CD. You'll be
offered the opportunity to delete, create, and format partitions as part of
the installation process. (You may need to re-arrange the order of boot
devices in the PC's BIOS to boot from the CD.)
HOW TO Install Windows XP
Then the backed up data can be restored and applications re-installed.
