Administrator Password

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.security (More info?)

I have a system that I have not used in a year or so, running 2000
professional.
It was a point of sale system with the OS installed by the vendor who is now
out of business.
When I start up, I am prompted for the Administrator password. I have no
clue what that was, and no way to find out. I need to reset it to a new
password so I can use this machine again.

How?

    See the link below on how to deal with your problem. You will need full
    physical access to your computer to do such. --- Steve

    there is a software on the internet which allows you to create a bootable
    floppy containing linux bootable file. Boot the machine through the floppy
    and through the steps given you can reset the windows 200 admin password.
