As opposed to changing the password to get the files, put the drive(s) as a secondary disk in another system and get what you need. Or, boot to a live Linux CD (like Knoppix) to copy the files.

Yes, you could just install XP without reformatting, but that would leave a whole bunch of other junk on the drive - a format during install is much better.
