I was given a laptop that once belonged to a .com-bomb biz and old networking info was or is still on it...Well, I was trying to clean theis stuff out, and now I have no idea how, but I've locked myself out of the machine.  The username and pw I was given no longer work & I'm trapped at the logon screen.  Please help.  I need a no-cost and user-friendly solution...Thank you.

Hello lynzeke,  here are a few things you can try:

Forgot the Administrator's Password
http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

if you read through this it will tell you how to make a bootdisk either from a floppy or a cd-rw that will allow you to remove the lockout status of the administrator.

Forgot the Administrator's Password

this can reset passwords but it should also be able to REMOVE the DISABLED status

ERD Commander 2003

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

go here and read
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
and then get the bootdisk: instructions and image
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/bd040116.zip
unzip it and put a blank formatted floppy in your drive and double click on install.bat, it will create the folppy to boot to
boot up to it, and follow the instructions on
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/bootdisk.html

Hope these suggestions help you....
