    Is there some scripted way to do this like for the VLK and OEMBIOS changer... method?

    Ditto this; there's no real good reason to keep XP Home. (Even if I owned a legitimate Home key, I'd be switching to Pro.)

    Here's a possibility, never tried it myself but.. (personally I'd just back everything up and do a clean XP Pro SP3 install.)

    There's alternatives as well. Plenty of VNC/remote desktop apps out there that'll give you the same results regardless of which Winders you're using.

    In my experience realvnc seem to be slower? RDP uses its own graphics driver thats why I think its faster. is there a website that has reviews on that?

    thanks

    I upgraded my HP computer to XP PRO just because of there was no remote desktop server in XP Home but I did it for free because my HP computer's bios already had SLP 1.0 built in.

    You need to connect to your remote desktop using RDP tool or remote support services such as gosupportnow, logmeinrescue etc. Once connected to your remote desktop, login as guest->control panel->user accounts->Advanced->managed passwords.
