W2k Prof System locks me out as no password created

I have been using a PC as a single User computer with W2k SP3 and did not provide a password and alwasy signed in as the administrator.

I decided to connect the computer to a second PC through the network (each has a Network card, and both are connected to a router).

Now the computer without the password for the administrator will not let me get beyond the sign-in.

No matter what boot-up procedure I follow the password is requested.

How can I overcome this hang-up???

do you have a drop box on your login screen that contains the name of your computer and the domain you are on (if any)??

If so make sure that the name of your computer is selected.

If this is not the case you could try http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ this is a linux bootdisk wit an NTFS drive that reads your security files and allows you to crack the Administrators password.  Works every time
