Go to Computer Management under Administrative Tools.  This can be found in Control Panel or on your start menu.  Remember you must be logged in with Administrator rights to access this.

If your talking about a domain account you'll need to open the Active Directory users and computers which is in the administrative tools on the DC. For a stand alone or workgroup PC, right click on My Computer and select Manage, from there you will see the Local Users and Groups option.

Hello if go you to :start-settings-control panel-administrative tools-computer management-local users and groups, you can modify users and groups.
Another way is: start-settings-control panel-administrative tools-local security policy. There you have a lot of options.

I hope this will help.

There are tools useful during migrations to Win2k domains. Maybe one of these would help - some are VB based and can be tweaked. Have a look on your Win2k cd.

Advanced stuff about using scripting for admin here:
Sorry, not a coder myself, but it's a thought if you have those skills (and are so inclined).

Actually I was looking for a line command or something like that. But I have found a function in VC++, so I will create my own Application.

Thanks to all.
