AnyPasskey Windows Password Recovery would be your
first choice! This easy-to-use yet powerful Windows password reset tool could reset any account passwords, including Windows local
administrator, Domain Administrator and other user account password,
etc. instantly by creating a bootable CD/DVD or USB drive on all Windows
OS, such as Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000 and Server 2003, 2008, etc. Just
in minutes, no need to re-install Windows or formatting hard disk, you
can get access to your computer again without any data losing or file
damaging. Pretty easy procedures even it is your first try.
If it is not logging you in it is because the login name or password is wrong (caps lock?) or the account is disabled or locked out or non-existant or you are attempting to log in to a domain that user does not have an account on. Make sure you are trying to log in to the local machine, capitalization is correct and your keyboard isn't inputting multiple characters when your intent is a single one. If you have a different account with administrative privileges, try that one and use it to reset the password on the preferred account.
If you can't log in as a different user, you will need something like ERD commander or http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ with this plugin http://www.bootcd.us/BartPE_Plugin_Details/394/Change-Administrator-Password.html so you can boot from CD and re-set the password for the administrator account. Once you have it fixed, set up a second administrator account so you have a backup account to log in with, that allows you to do administrative things like reset passwords and unlock accounts, just in case.
You may need to edit group policy if this was once in a domain. You may want to try rebooting the machine and logging into the 'LOCAL' machine and see if you have rights that way. Each machine by default has one administrator account but if the server was part of a domain, that right may have been removed. You may need to reset OWNER privileges for all files in the machine.
This message means that the user account you are trying to use does not have rights to log on remotely. You need to go to the server, log on as an administrator at the console. Once logged in, add the user account you want to use to the local "Remote Desktop Users" group.
You need to go into administrative tools and look for group policy.
In the local computer policy
Windows Settings > security settings > Local policies > user rights assignment. In the right hand pane find the policy for "Allow log on locally" Set the user accounts for those users which are allowed to log on interactively on the server. Be careful you dont lock the administrator account out.
Use in conjunction with the "Deny logon locally policy" if you need to.
Hope this helps
