I was given a computer from a friend that has a log-on popup window. Next to User Name it has 'administrator' already in the box. Below that the Password spot is blank. Is there any way to access or bypass this lock out. The computer is a Dell with Windows 2000 Pro

The forum Mods wouldn't let me post an answer to your problem since it's against forum rules.

The obvious answer is to ask your friend.

Or perform a fresh install of Windows to make sure it will only contain the viruses and trojans YOU install, and not your friend ;)
