W2K Pro Local Log-On Question
Posted on 2003-03-26
My father-in-law gave me his Dell notebook running W2K Pro. He claims that all of a sudden he has a logon box that he never had before. A logon box comes up at startup, then an error: "The system cannnot log you on now because the domain SMITH is not available" . His username is filled in and any attempt to enter a PW gives the above error. After clicking on options, there is no option to log on locally, only a dial-up option. Is there an easy (or difficult) way to get local access in this situation? I just need to give him access to some important files. Thanks in advance for any insight!!!!
Also - If I leave it at the login screen for awhile, I get an MSTask.exe- Entry Point Not Found error, stating: "The procedure entry point CertGetCertificateChain could not be located in the dynamic link library crypt32.dll
