I have a laptop running Windows 2000 Professional. It was removed from a MS domain and I do not have the password for the local account. I know that I can just format the hard drive and load a new OS, but I was hoping to save some of the old data on the hard drive. The domain was removed by accident by my nephew who was just playing on the computer. I do not have access to the domain that was configured on the laptop, so I can not take it to the help desk. Is there any way to bypass this password in Windows 2000?
