Password Bind

In a bind. I have an XP machine can't remember the local admin password and the machine isn't registered on the domain - They had a server crash and everything had to be rebuilt.  Can't seem to get in to this machine.  Is there anything I can do?

I would reset the Password with Offline NT Password & Registry Editor.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

i also use the above password tool
normally i run it from the UBCD (also mentioned)
it requires only logging on to the proper user, then acknowledging the operation proposed with Enter - and terminate by writing the empty password
that's it
