Hacking, A Bad Thing?

Most People think of hacking as a harmful thing (people accessing your files, making your computer go haywire, finding out your personal credit card information), but in reality, it is not what you may think. All hacking really is, is manipulating computers or programs to do certain things that it would not normally do. I will give an example and a step-by-step instruction on how to do a helpful hack. Take note though, this could be used for harmful purposes. Yes, I did come up with this by myself, and I'm sure that others have thought of this.

-Logging Onto Any Windows Account Without A Password-

Note - this only works on Windows XP as far as I know

Have you ever completely forgotten your password to your Windows account? Well, most have. Another scenario, have you just been itching to find out what is on somebody else's account? Here is the solution.

Turn on the computer. Right as it is booting up press the ESC button. It should go into a menu with something about what you want to boot. Select "Hard Drive". Now it should should ask you something about which Mode you want to boot in. Select "Safe Mode". The computer will go to the user select screen now. Select the user "Administrator". While in Administrator mode, go to Start>Control Panel>User Accounts>Change An Account. You can then take off any users password from there. Use this process wisely =)

Do you know any helpful hacks? Please share them with me!
