Use the logon screensaver

by Meieselve In reply to windows 2000 advanced ser ...

Use an NTFS reader from a bootable CD to make a copy of either cmd.exe or explorer.exe (depending on preference) and rename the copy to logon.scr

Place the copy into the system32 folder. (backing up the original logon.scr beforehand would be wise)

Boot the system to the windows logon prompt, wait 10 minutes for the screen saver to initialize, and viola' you'll have admin access to either a command prompt or explorer (depending on which you copied.)

From there, you can reset the password either through the admin utilities, or via command line.
