Registry editing for passwords

By henry.a.penaranda ·
I am running Windows 98 on my companies laptop. My boss asked me to give him that laptop. It has an administrative password which i do not know. I only know a user account for access to the machine. Is there a way through the registry that i canchange the administrative password so i can log in as administrator and attain those rights???

Registry editing for passwords

Win 9X is a totally Unsecure Operating System. Any one who logs in has full access to the system.(Unless you are using the win9x system policy manager) If you need to reset a user id, do a search for *.pwl and delete all of the files that come up.This will clear the system of all user accounts and you can start over with the boss's ID.

Best of Luck...
