Question about Microsoft Windows 2000 for PC

I forgot my Administrator Password

Until now I was the only user in my computer and I didn't need to use any password, but I remember that I did store one for the admin when I installed windows XP. My roommate asked me to use my computer and after he messed up one of my files I decided to add another user and to block the access to some of the folders. Everything went great and I created the User, changed the folders setting and the way you login to my computer. When I did restart I have 2 users, but I forgot the admin password and I can't login with my user only the new user I created. I can't change anything because the new user have limited access. I can't believe I did something so stupid, please help I am desperate. First off im only 17, but im pretty good at computers. My principle gave me a computer, windows 2000. As soon as i turn it on i have to type in a password ..i guessed it and by george i got it. When i thought it was all good, i later found out after trying to install my camera and dl msn that i had limited previliges.*sigh* I tried everything. i tried guessing the username and password, i asked my teacher, he said the administrative password was "Administrative Password"..but that doesnt work either. Ive tried encrytping the passwords on a disk. But that hadnt worked either. i cant get into anything to try and change the password because, yes i have limited access.. And my last resort is right now..im looking for stuff on the internet..ive tried finding the chuse, some thing where you find the script and type this: *securityRecoveryUtility.bat -r * and apparently it ables you to recover/change your password..But i cant find the bin where it is either. HELP!

Default admin password


  1. Enter your user name. If you didn't change the user name during installation, enter admin in theUser Name field. [Show Me]


  2. Enter the password you entered during installation and click OK. Additional characters will appear to be inserted as you enter your password. This is designed to hide the number of characters in your password.

    • Note: If you didn't change the default password when you set up your router, it may have been changed to your router's serial number to provide greater security. You can find your router's serial number on a label affixed to the bottom or back of your router.

I cannot log on, i cannot remember password


Hi.

If you can not remember the password, try logging into another user account with Admin rights and change the password for your account of there is another admin account in the computer.

Other option, as computers will have a default admin account, try booting to computer to safe mode, generally the account is not password protected until the user decides to assign a password.

Finally, if nothing works, you may use third party applications to boot into the Computer( e.g. Nopix).

Otherwise, use a OS disc and format the computer reinstall the OS.

Thanks!!!!
