In windows XP, there is always a hidden account which can always be seen only in a safe mode. Consider you have 3 accounts in your windows XP account, try to turn on the computer in safe mode. You will see 4 accounts. The one which has been added extra is Administrator account. When you installed OS for the first time, then by default you will be logged into administrator account. If you set a password at that time, then there will be a password for your Administrator account. This can also be used as a kind of hack to sneak into another computer. So, make sure to set a password while creating administrator account.
How to view hidden account in normal mode?
Well, this is quite easy task. If a computer has 3 accounts, and while you try to select your account to get logged in, hit ALT + CTRL+Del (2times). Now you will be able to see an Administrator account, which has a password set by you while you installed OS. If you din’t set Administrator account while you installed OS, it will be easy to any one to log in and access all your files from the administrator account.
