XP password

i recently reinstalled windows over an existing one. After i set everything up, like users and all, i get to the logon screen. The only problem is that all of the users are passworded. i have no clue why it would do this. i even have a legal license key if that helps any but it just is makin me go crazy PLZ HELp. i know there is a way to make a password boot disk but since i cant log in to windows, i can make one.

Do you know the administrator password? I'm not sure, but, I think the administrator can override all the other users?

Have you tried just enter, and did you try logging in as "administrator" with the password that was set during setup?

Otherwise you'll have to resort to one of the password changing boot disks. Be aware that there's always the possibility that such things will screw your registry over.
