  • Set Administrator pwd in win2k pro

    HI All,
    I have installed win2k pro on my desktop and been using it for quite sometime now using adminstrator login without setting any password. Since my Colleagues also use my PC sometimes i, now, require to protect my data from other users, hence i tried to set password for administrator but the "set password" option is greyed out n the users and password window. Can any one help me out.

    Thanx in advance

    You should be able to use Atl+ctrl+del, then one of the options is change password.

      You won't be able to change the password until you set your system to ask for one.

      From memory i think you follow this.

      Open up Control Panel and double click on the users icon.
      Once this is open there will be a check box "Users must Enter a username and Password to enter this computer". Check it.
      Click on the user and click reset password.

            Another method of changing password:

            Start> Run> cmd>

            use this command line

            net user administrator *

            system will ask for password change
