Is there any way around the administrator password. I am trying to load up software onto a laptop running Win 2000 but keep getting blocked by administrator password function.

Is the laptop yours?
Have you just forgotten your administrator password?

No it's a friends, who got it from a family member
who got it from their company, surplus to requirements. All company data removed at source but not the password.
