Hi, a friend of mine using Windows 2000 pro cannot remember his administrator logon password :rolleyes: , does this mean a re-install is needed or is there any way to bypass the logon screen? Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks :)

At work we use password changer pro - I forget who made the software "active" something comes to mind but take that with a picnh of salt. The software will allow you to clear the admin password and login.

Our copy boots from a CD.

There's also a download somewhere for a Linux boot CD that can change the password. I have one somewhere.

You can use either a Knoppix Live Boot CD or Active Password changer which is included on Hiren's Boot CD.

PS: Both of which are free :)

Ive used that thing for quite a while and it works every time. I used to used the Locksmith tool on ERD but it would fail 6 out of 10 times. The new version 3.5 also includes support for Vista.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
