Right Click on "Computer" -> Manage

Local Users and Groups -> reset the password of the local admin and/or enable the account.

Additionally, you can create another account, make it part of the admins group and use that to log in after you have removed the computer from the domain.

it seemed you were doing this to several computers. I meant it as a "from now on" approach.

For the server you are having issues now, run this CD.
