I do not think there are additional Administrative passwords except for the one that I have and it doesn't work.

I know it's possible to RESET the Windows 2000 password,
BUT i NEVER used it on a windows 2000 server!! only on pro workstations.

<removed by modulo>

one word of warning,

This will RESET the password, if you are NOT the owners/sysadmin of the system it is ILLIGAL by LAW AND by EE rules to do this.

I just asked EE to look into this question.

Out of precaution I removed the link.

I've refunded your points and I'll delete this question after 24 hrs.

You'll have to check with your system admin or the manufacterer how to solve this.

Sorry, I hope you understand.
