  • clearing xp password cache

    We seem to have a security issue on a laptop a normal user is able to add himself as a administrator to the folder of other users and as wel to restricted file folders. We made a copy of his account an then we dont have the problem, this user is not a member of administrators.

    As it appears now this situation seems to be linked to his laptop, we think that an administrator has been doing things (mapping a network drive under a admin account) and this seems to be remembered.

    We want to know how we can solve this problem on the laptop perhaps by clearing the password cache..........

    Thanks in advance

    Try this:

    If there is a huge security list, log in as a local admin, clear all settings on the local computer, remove the current user from the user list, remove from domain than rejoin to the domain.
