    Reset NT/2000/xp Administrator Password ?

    Hey guys,

    I saw this advert on ebay here :

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=3404332915

    which claims to do this :

    Forgetting a password is one of the most annoying things that can happen and waste hours of your time guessing it or reinstallation of the operating System. This disk will enable you to change/reset the password of any user (including ADMINISTRATOR) on a Windows NT, 2000, XP installation WITHOUT knowing the old password. This disk is able to actually parse/follow the internal registry structure completely. It also handles (disables) syskey. You may either let the scripts try to figure out your configuration or you may do it manually from the shell prompts.

    FEATURES:

    100% recovery rate
    Windows NT3.51 & NT4 Workstation, Standalone Server, PDC.
    Windows 2000 Professional, Server and Advanced Server (not with Active Directory Server)
    All secure boot options are supported
    All Service Packs are supported
    Windows NT, 2000 or XP setup CD-ROM or floppies ARE NOT REQUIRED



    I wuz wondering, is this possible ? Has anyone tried it ?

    I don't know.. sounds fishy..

    But I could make you a linux floppy to do the same for any linux box

    after boot there'll be a script asking to mount the root partition.. then it'll ask which usernames you want de-passworded...

    then it opens /etc/shadow

    and removes the password has..

    tada a next reboot no passwords !!

    There is a similar one that does that to a NT/2000 box (not sure about XP). Using Linux it modifies the SAM and thus let's you reset the password.

    In fact, that link on Ebay looks like the instructions for http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ . Note: I do not advocate the use of this. I use this as part of a lab I run in a course I teach. If you decide to use it, it is AT YOUR OWN RISK. I've had students foo-bar their Win2K installs with this.

    yess .. that ever happened to me mate, and i was so scared about that . becoz i can enter my own computer ( i forgot my password ). i try to reboot by CD and repair it and it still ask the password.
    have u try to install it by reboot from cd and make a refresh installation ?
    and when it ask you to format the NTFS or Fat32 .. just choose "leave the curent " and it will reainstall ur OS.
    i know it is not the solution .. becoz at that time i don't know the sollution either. but let me give u an advice ( from a newbie ) .. always make more than one admin account on your system . i did that till now .. so if u forget you still have the other one.

    i could be wrong but i've trid mate.

    For lost passwords, I use ERD Commander by Winternals. http://www.winternals.com/products/r...mander2002.asp

    It's actually a pretty cool tool for other things too. You can get a 30 day evalutation copy to check it out.
