Administrative Password HELP!

Is there anyway to just bypass or erase an administrative password or just get rid of the whole network part of the computer system. I am using an old work computer from a company I don't know and am just trying to install software and hardware and it won't let me. It's frustrating.

I think you would have less problems if you just reformated the harddrive and reloaded the operating system. Then you would be able to start fresh and have fewer problems with the computer. That is what I would do.

Yea. You should then be able to do a clean install by booting from the cd.

You would need to get copy of what ever operating system you want to install.

Simply, the "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor" boot floppy should work. [link] :)

other option of course would be to re-install the operating environment which you will need a retail copy of Windows to do, or a system restore disc if you have one.
