You have a bit of a problem. You could try booting from the Windows 2000 Install CD and choosing the Repair option. You can repair the user database which will just rebuild it... Then log on with Administrator, no password.

Good luck!

There are literally hundreds of Win2K password recovery tools. Just do a simple web search. Most cost some money but some trial versions will give you the first 4 or 5 letters/digits, this often helps jog the memory.

Also try searching Alstalavista at http://www.astalavista.box.sk ( you can get into anything from there)

Go with Joseph's suggestion. This Linux disk is an incredible tool and it works quickly and easily. There are good instructions included....I've used this many times without any problem.
