Recover Local Administrator password
Posted on 2006-11-22
Dear EE member,
I have three pcs shifting from factory to our office with windows 2000 Pro Operating
System. I have changed one of the windows 2000 administrator name from 'Administrator'
to 'John' and checked the 'Required user to press Ctrl-Alt-Del before logging on' in
Control Panel|Users and Passwords|Advanced Tab|Secure Booting. Initially, we can
login the system without password.
The nightmare come, because my wrong assumption that the admistrator password is blank. Therefore, I cannot login to this windows 2000 pc anymore.
Finally, I forced to clone the windows 2000 with ghost utility and reconfigure again all
the user setting, since these three pc belong to the same administrator name, I can
perform this action.
But, is there any alternative/way to detect my administrator password.
