Admin Password

By sed55 ·
I have inherited a PC that we really can't reinstall WinNT onto, but we need to get in there and change to use DHCP rather than static IP. However, the Admin password has been lost. Is there any way to ascertain or change the admin password without reinstalling WinNT 4.0?

Sure is!! Use a Repair disk from a simular configured pc. Run 3 Boot disks, when you get to repair option, only select the security portion of the repair. You don't have to run full repair with the CD.
Reboot, you should be able to log into the local pc with the admin password for pc you use the repair disk from.
This always works for us.
