  • Win2k pro password support needed please!!!

    Howdy guys, Seth here... thanks everybody for the great resource since I forgot my password. I have tried a couple of the methods... boot cd and the logon.scr trick however with the latter after it goes to the cmd prompt when I type 'net user administrator 123456' (which is one of my users) I get a message that reads 'System error 5 <next line> Access denied.' Anybody come across this message before and know how to troubleshoot it? All help greatly appreciated!!!

    Most forgotten password cases can be solved by using one of the methods described on my site, and usually things work out. I don't know why you say the boot CD didn't work for you, but I suggest you try these tools before attempting the logon.scr trick. That one does not work for all systems (it depends upon a few factors, it seems that your system was one of the unlucky ones).

    So, again, I suggest you try the boot CDs. You could also look at the tool-maker's website for his FAQ.
