Win 2000 Admin password

  Blacki 10:01 28 Nov 2004


Recently installed win 2000 on a friends pc. I had set up no passwords on it, but now he is after locking himself out. I had setup him as the administrator. Any ideas on how i go about resetting the password without reinstalling win 2000.

If you think about it, if there was a way it really wouldn't be a secure OS now would it...

Howvwer there are ways; a program called ERD comander and other tools are available on the net. Just do a google search

Load windows in "Safe Mode". There should be another "Administrator" accont called "Administrator" Just type this in and press enter. This should work, as it worked for me on win2000.
