windows 2000 pro login password not know

By jsaunders ·
What can you do to by pass a win 2k pro logon screen if you forgot the password for the system?
Besides reinstalling windows 2000 pro OS.
Does anyone have a cure for this problem?

There are a couple of things you can do. Is there vital data on the machine? Go to this site
http://www.oo-software.de/ and download thier application. it will boot your machine into a console where you can put in your own password and it will make the changes to the machines hash when you boot back up... If this dont work tell me, i have a couple other ideas in mind.

2k utilities, you need locksmith v2.0 This will allow you to reset the admin pwd.

No you can not bypass the logon window in 2k if it is already set. Unless you have the recovery console installed.

You can set it though(once your in) not to display the logon window, assuming you are not in a domain.

If you are in a domain, log on as a domain admin and you will be in.
