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.

Boot into safe mode. ('Rapidly press F8 before the Windows boots)
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
and restore your PC to an earlier date.

If you have disabled your System Restore, then you'll have to repair your windows Installation CD detailed procedure can be read at these links.

Error code :0xc004e002


The error message appears if the file in which the activation status of Vista  is faked, is corrupted or missing.
Once you are at the error message screen you will have an option to contact support once you click on it that should open Internet explorer and once you have the Internet explorer type in the address bar the following commands:
 -  net stop slsvc   (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes) -  cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
 -  rename tokens.dat tokens.bat
-   cd %windir%\system32
 -  net start slsvc
 -  cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc 
and wait for the process to finish. Reboot again and activate Vista.

My lap top will not turn on giving error message windowssystem32congfigsystem


Hi,

You need to get a Windows XP from someone and follow these instructions:
Windows could not start because the following files is missing or corrupt
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM or \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE

1. Insert and boot from your Windows XP CD.
2. At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
3. Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
Typically this will be #1
4. Enter in the administrator password when requested
5. cd \windows\system32\config
6. Depending on which section was corrupted:
ren software software.bad or ren system system.bad
7. Depending on which section was corrupted
Copy \windows\repair\system
Copy \windows\repair\software
8. Take out the CD ROM and type exit

If that doesn't work or you can't get into the repair console then With the XP disk you choose to install Windows XP and when you choose to install over the current XP installation you will be given the option to repair the current Windows installation and you won't lose all of your data.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

When i try it says setup.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close


try right clicking to it and run as an administrator. the file maybe corrupted thus making it unable to work. If it is not working the setup.exe file must be corrupted. Try downloading a new copy or buying the original copy.

To Download MSI file of Office Xp


Hi,

Office 2003, Office XP, and Office 2000 provide the Detect and Repair command. You can find the Detect and Repair command on the Help menu of almost all Office programs. Using this command corrects identifiable problems such as missing files, corrupt files, registry omissions, or damaged registry entries. It replaces the .msi file if it was deleted, damaged, or is the wrong version. Using the Detect and Repair command usually requires you to provide the installation CD for the version of Office currently installed on your computer.

I am wondering if you went to Help? And did you click the arrows to see more options? It is there you will see the Detect and Repair. Once you click on that, it should find and/or repair the missing file(s).

If that didn't work, you could always uninstall and reinstall MS Office.

Hope this helps
