Admin. Password for Win2000

By mdbrewer ·
Our IT manager forgot the administrative password for one of our Win2K pc's. The only accounts we have passwords to, don't have Admin. rights. Is there anyway to get around this so that we can change the password or rename the administrative account? I don't want to have to format the machine, so any answers would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

This password crack utility saved my butt. It's a little tricky to do and the instructions are long, but it worked the first time with no problems.
Thanks again.
