How to Recover Windows 2000 Password

Forgot administrator password on a system running Windows 2000 can be problematic when the administrator to perform maintenance. There is a trick that allows a computer user to reset his password, if you forgot. The process to recover a password in Windows 2003 and XP is different from the process used for Windows NT and Windows 2000.
Step 1. Insert the installation CD of Windows 2000 / DVD into the drive of the computer and then restart the computer.
Step 2. Select the destination directory for the alternative Windows operating system when the program asks you to do. This directory is not the same as the default installation of Windows. This is the computer is a dual-boot system.
Step 3. When the computer restarts, select the alternate Windows installation from the dual-boot menu.
Step 4. Find the logon.scr file. It should be located in the %systemroot%\System32 folder of the Windows folder.
Step 5. Rename logon.scr and move it into the C: folder of the hard drive. You can choose to move it to a different directory. The important thing is to remember where the file gets copied.
Step 6. Find cmd.exe and make a copy of it in the %systemroot%\System32 folder. Move this file to the C: folder of your hard drive.
Step 7. Right-click on the original cmd.exe file and select "Rename." Delete the cmd.exe text and replace it with logon.scr.
Step 8. Restart the computer and start Windows installation. Do not touch the computer until the start of the screensaver. Since the screen saver file, get the default is replaced with the file cmd.exe, then a command prompt instead of the screen saver.
Step 9. At this prompt type: net user administrator <password>
Step 10. Delete logon.scr from the %systemroot%\system32 folder.
Step 11. Issue the following commands from the command prompt:
copy c:\logon.scr c:\windows\%systemroot\system32
copy c:\cmd.exe c:\windows\%systemroot\system 32
Step 12. Restart the computer in the original. From here you can remove the additional installation if desired. If the administrator installation alternatives are on a different drive or partition to reformat the hard disk or partition is the easiest way to achieve this goal.

I forgot my password and I can only log in as a guest

You can try the below given steps to reset administrator password using guest account (you must have write access to system32 file):

1. Navigate to location C:/windows/system32

2. Copy cmd.exe file to desktop and rename it to sethc.exe

3. Now copy this sethc.exe file and paste to system 32 (when windows asks for overwriting click yes).

4. Log out from guest account and at user login screen press shift key 5 times.

5. It will open command prompt with full administrator privileges.

6. Now type "NET USER ADMINISTRATOR xyz123" (where "xyz123" can be any password according to your choice) and press enter.

7. You will see "The Command completed successfully" and then exit the command prompt and login into administrator with your new password.

If you don't have write access to system32 file then you can use stellar phoenix password recovery software to reset administrator password.

Resetting Your Forgotten Windows Password

Boot off the Windows disk and select the "Repair your computer" option from the lower left-hand corner.

Follow through until you get to the option to open the Command Prompt, which you'll want to select.
First you'll want to type in the following command to backup the original sticky keys file:

copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\

Then you'll copy the command prompt executable (cmd.exe) over top of the sticky keys executable:

copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe

Resetting the Password

Once you get to the login screen, hit the Shift key 5 times, and you'll see an administrator mode command prompt.

Now to reset the password-just type the following command, replacing the username and password with the combination you want:

net user geek MyNewPassword

That's all there is to it. Now you can login.

Of course, you'll probably want to put the original sethc.exe file back, which you can do by rebooting into the installation CD, opening the command prompt, and copying the c:\sethc.exe file back to c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe.
