Forgot Admin password
Posted on 2005-03-31
My neighbor approached me with a computer problem. He has windows 2000 installed and evidently does not have any of the original CD's or knows anything about its origin other than he picked it up in a rummage sale.
Anyway, it asks for administrator password whenever he tries to load a program or make any changes. I hvae seen a few things on here about that problem but I am really unclear on the solution.
Can I add another user with admin rights? Can I change or elimiate the password without destroying his setup? He does not have the OS cd. He cannot access users and groups either and can only log in as a guest I am assuming.
Thanks for the help!
