I have a small issue where I work. The company I work for recently fired the desktop support guy (the only one for the building), and as such, he took with him the password for admin accounts on the local machine. It gets more difficult too. We use a variety of Win 2000/xp machines. In addition to this, he not only had more than one password, but a variety of the same passwords. He also removed the domain group so that a simple push cannot be made to reset it. What are your recommended solutions for the expeditious recovery of the passwords from the sam files.
