If someone (my parents) locked me outta my computer for whatever reason (for being on the computer too long), by changing the log in password with the admin account, is there anyway of me getting in without knowing the password? I thought I once heard you could do something at startup.

Well, here's what you get a million bits for:
Reset the administrator's password with access only to a limited account
or
Find out/get past another user's password without changing it, again with only access to a limited account.

Windows xp professional by the way.

log onto the limited account and find ht hidden file where log ins are stored , if ther is a bios password , just change the jumper settings also , what i did to get passes at school , is run my home made keylogger , you can get it to write to a nice location wher no one goes , and BAM you got yourself a password , profressional is the hardest , everythig else the safe mode trick works or jsut click off hte logon
