    Hi Guys,

    I fixed a friends machine and did a fresh reinstall of his Win2000Pro. Since then, he has created a username/password for himself, but did not give himself Admin rights. We have been trying to logon as "Administator" in the logon without a password, but it will not logon. Does Win2000Pro create a default password for Admin rights? At install, I never created a password for Admin, and he swears that never created a password for the admin as well when he created his user/pass.

    Try a blank password. You are using ADMINISTRATOR as the login, and not ADMIN, right?

    I tried leaving it blank, to no avail. But I will try "ADMINISTRATOR" not "Administrator"

    HAHA... I didn't mean that you had to capitalize it. I just did that because I wanted it to stand out. It's possible you just mistyped it and you typed it correctly when you did it in caps. usernames are not case sensitive. Glad that worked for you though... later

    Now that's funny, Un.

    I did not know that usernames are not case sensitive. Learn something new everyday.

    Thanks again,
