XP Logon Error

By minoo03 ·
I need help.

At my workplace, i have a computer which was used by the secretary to the GM. she has quit and does not remember the logon passwords for her User id as well as for the Administrator id. Have tried Active password changer 3.0 but does not work. After using Active pwd changer when i try to login using any of the accounts Administrator or User, i get the following error message:

Logon Message
The system cannot log you on due to the following error:
The program issued a command but the command length is incorrect.
Please try again or consult your system administrator.

I need to login as the GM has his important files on the hdd. Also tried connecting the hdd as a slave to another system but does not let one in. Using WIN XP Professional.

We do not know the password either..

So we can not help you.
You will have to ask the lady since she is the only one that is in the know.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

Then charge it to the GM.

The passwords might just flow with the wine.

a lesson learned

by jdclyde In reply to XP Logon Error

never give a secretary the administrator password.

if they have encrypted the drive, all the password changers in the world aren't going to get that data back.

Another lesson learned, you hold the last pay check until they have turned over all keys and passwords, which of course are just virtual keys.

Sure, it doesn't help you in this case, but provided you don't get yourself fired because of your actions, you can keep from repeating this.

Good luck, your going to need it.
