  • Lost Domain Password?

    Hello All

    I encountered a real brain twister today and I was wondering if anyone can help

    I was called to look at an SBS 2003 box which was running a whole lot slower than usual. Now I was able to logon to the box normally using the administrator password.

    Things I have encountered:
    1) the machine gradually slows down before it totally halts
    2) removing the network connection allowed it to function a little longer before again slowing down until a reboot is inevitable

    Now the most puzzleing thing. After collecting information from event viewer, antivirus logs(no system changes were made to the system in any way) a restart rendered the administrator password useless. In other words I am now unable to log on the the SBS domain

    Any Ideas to help

    Thanks in Advance
