    Hey there.

    Only one computer has someone else with administrative rights, and I've just checked with her and she's confirmed that the main administrator is also logged on as a user on that computer, with undoubtedly in my mind the same password as the main computer, and the other Win 2K laptops.
    As far as the chase is concerned, we are meeting on Monday, to try and get his password using her privileges as an administrator, and using different ideas suggested here.
    Which ideas are the best to try? I'm gonna use the version of L0pht that I've downloaded, as I assume it will show me all the passwords of all the users on the computer, but what about this PWDump thing? Can anyone give a brief tutorial on it, and if there are any further suggestions as to how I can access his password in a situation where we have administrators rights, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I don't just want to access programmes, I want to remove his password from the computers, so we can go back to our happy care-free existence!!

    Thanks very much guys, your help is much appreciated, and my colleagues are pleased that you are helping me out too!

    How bout this since your having so much trouble. open up the computer take out the hard drive. THen load it as a slave drive on another computer. Copy all the files you need and then format the drive. Put it on the old computer and load win 2000 up again

    Good point, XPaCiScOoL. Backing up and formatting looks like the best option to me. That way you'd have more control over how things are set up and the jerk who got you into this mess won't have any privileges worth speaking of on the machine. So there won't be a way for him to trip you up again.
    Anyway, let us know ok?

    im Sorry to say this, If he only left you all with user abilities to read and write then you are not going to be able to put any kind of software on the system to recover the passwords. If some one has power user abiliy then you will be able to use L0pht crack that is if you know how to use it. See windows 2000 is unlike the older OS ie: 95 and 98, 2000 has a one way encription meaning passwords go in like this 12345 and come out looking like this ***** So if you did get the password hashes out of the system to be decoded with a cracker it could take forever and best hope he didnt have a hard password like this A1*2cG-512d*

    Maybe your best hope is if he didnt activate the password Lock out you could use a password guesser to do the job. other than that sorry to hear that maybe you guys need to rethink about haveing more than one Admin.

    Well, I've known of the "taking the hard drive out option" since before joining the forum, but whilst it sorts out the problem with that one computer, it doesn't sort out the four laptops that also have his administrator password on.
    If you've read my above postings, then you will know that we do have access to the administrators group on one of these laptops, so it's not like we only have user access across the board.
    I've known this guy really well, enough to know that his password will be an easy-ish one (however, I've tried all his family names from his mother to ex-girlfriends etc) and that it will be the same on all the computers.
    I'm going to try L0pht on the laptop that my other colleague has and also try Cain (amazingly good piece of software by the way, I've tried it on my 98 computer) on one of the two 98 laptops we have.

    Peace, love and understanding to you all....

    Lightbulb another idea

    ok ive never really worked with win2k but i know in XPpro admins can disable other admins passwords with only a click... mabee once you get this other laptop with an admin user on it you can just delete the password. might not work though, its worth a try though.
