Security Policy Issue

By fmartens ·
My regional manager brought me her HP laptop today this system has never had a logon screen.
Now it comes up with a logon for Owner there is no password on this account. If you simply hit enter i get the error. "Local policy does not allow interactive logon" I have used a program that reads the password setup on an NTFS partion and verified there is no password on it or the Admin account that comes up with F8 in safe mode.
I Need a way around this as reformating the system is not and option. What i need in paticular to use the work around i have found is a program that will let me access the NTFS file system on c: from does everything i can find will only let me Read the NTFS not work with it.

laptop... well, this is a dirty way to get all that data the user wants off the laptop and then reinstall.

Go buy a 2.5 to 3.5 HDD adapter. Anywhere from $10.00 USD to $30.00 USD. Remove the laptop HDD and hook it up to a desktop that is NTFS. File and folder transfer everything over thats needed. burn em to a DVD or whatever media.

reinstall the HDD into the laptop reinstall the O/S the all the other stuff.

OR you can go here:

buy their software [$200.00] and reset the admin account password. Note encryted files are lost caput finni gone nada.

We bought this program. Works like a champ. No fuss no muss.

note: there are freeware versions to recover and reset the admin password for XP. I like the file and transfer method. quick, clean and the user doesn't lose files.

The password is not an issue there is no pasword on either account it's a policy issue.

Did you connect to the domain? That may have did it.

Read the article here it will get you going in the right path.

Yes the domain connection is the problem or at least seems to be what caused it. But I cannot log onto this comp local and booting from a floppy will not let me access ntrights. The comp will not connect back to the network till after logon.

At that login screen with the "owner" button do Control => Alt => Delete two times in a row. It should bring up a standard Windows login screen where you can log in as Admin.
