Windows 2000 password forgot

([msg=7443]see Windows 2000 password forgot[/msg])

So my friend how is a idiot, forgot his password to windows 2000. I swear that this is legitimate and not an attempt to hack into a stolen computer or anything else of the same sort. He can't remember the password after many hours of thinking, I've tried getting to MS-DOS but can't do it from the log in screen. Any help of how we can either get in through a back door, or restore the computer some how?

Simply tell him to boot his computer using a live disk. Get Ubuntu and burn ISO onto a disk. Stick it in, press Esc (or F2 or F12, depends on the computer) when showing the bios screen when loading. Choose CD Drive.
Load. Then get a program to crack his password - download to USB and run it from command. Done!

I like that response because it doesn't help anyone who wants to know the answer in a non-legit way.

If you lost windows password. I think the best solution is making a windows password recovery disk with the third part utility. The disk works perfectly to recover windows password to “Blank”.It is also useful for administrator password recovery, you can wrote it to an blank CD or USB flash drive to recover administrator password. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm. :twisted:

Almost two years necro (in case you didn't notice), so I doubt the OP is still looking for help.
