  • The LOGON.SCR trick - error code 5 access denied

    I followed this article from Daniel:
    How to gain access to WindowsXP, forgot the administrator's password.
    Alternate Method - The LOGON.SCR trick
    I got as far as Paragraph 11. when I typed in net user administrator 123456 I got the response
    error code 5 access is denied

    I have XP Pro on a home machine installed on a SATA drive (Silicon image drivers). Followed the instructions to the letter and all went well till the above error.
    Has Microsoft patched the hole or am I just a terrible lamer?

    Best Regards
    Damien

    I need to get to the bottom of this, it seems that 1 out of every 10 people says he's got this error, although they claim to go by the book. Strange.
