I have a Windows 7 machine on my domain network.  I need to log in without the domain, but it appears that the password I have on record is incorrect.

Is there a way to resolve this by logging in as a domain admin?  Or am I screwed?

Thanks,

Steve

You can log on to Windows 7 machine as Domain Administrator and reset Local Administrator password easily.
Open Computer Management, click Local Users and Groups, click Users. Right-click Administrator and click Set Password...
