  • Admin password corrupted or lost

    i sucessfully used the Peter Nordahl-Hagen boot disk to blank out the admin password of several accounts of a friends machine. But before that I followed the alternate login on trick to recover the password but when I type "net user administrator 123456" an error comes back as systems error 5. I understand that to be a system error being that the command is being executed form a non admin account. can I please have a tip as to what I was doing wrong. And I've just remembered I've left the login.scr as cmd.exe. I'll have to go back and change it for them.
