hi, I temporarily put my SBS2003 on the public internet (configured my lan connection with public IP) and 3 hours later my domain admin password was changed.

fortunately all my data in D: drive (exchange store) and my user profiles (also in D) are intact.

I noticed however several new .dll and .txt files on the root of C: drive.

How can I recover my domain admin pass? or can I restore it to the previous one?

I can still log on locally with a limited -privilege user. if I run "net user administrator" on the command prompt, I see that the password was last changed 3 hours ago (and it wasn't us)

I have physical access to the machine and ideally i'd like to revert to our previous password.

Thank you.
