    Hey

    My biggest nightmare..... i have forgot my windows administrator password. how do i recover it? my good (?) conditions as follows
    1. User account is in running condition. but it is totaly restricted by Group policy.
    2. I have a linux administration CD, thru which i can restore my pass but my HDD policy does not allow it.
    3. My tool drive has been locked for unwanted uses, only administrator can access it.
    4. i have linux installed into my 2nd hdd, but i can not mount it as i have created my boot in that 1st hdd.

    any other sol.

    Here's how to reset ur password:
    Go to Run on the Start menu and type ‘cmd’ (without the quotes)
    A DOS like command prompt window will open. You must see the flashing cursor.
    At the command prompt type ‘net user administrator /random’ (without the quotes)

    This will reset ur admin password and change it to the one shown on ur screen.

    Well this is a suggestion for future.
    Please create a password Recovery disk by going to

    Control Panel>User Account>Prevent Forgotten Password.

    You need A floppy disk to do this.:)
