    I can't login to my windows 2000 PC. I think i erased all users and even administrator. Is there anyway around the login screen?

    Did you or didn't you delete all the users? There is only one way to do it.

    Hey, I haven't tried this yet, but there is away to access your 2000 pro machine by using Recovery Console on your 2000 cd rom. Start your computer with the 2000 disk in the drive. At the welcome screen, press F10, or R to repair. Press C to start Recovery Console.

    I found some information about Recovery Console at: www.naspa.net or goto google.com, search for Recovery Console.

    Not sure that this will apply here.

    People often find themselves locked out of their Windows 2000 or Windows NT systems as a result of a lost password for the Administrator account. Usually people consider the system a lost cause and start rebuilding it. However, you can use the following tip to work around this problem. When Win2K or NT boots, the OS usually displays the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen for approximately 20 minutes before the display changes and the logon box moves around the screen. When this happens, the machine has activated the screensaver logon.scr. If you replace this file with an alternative file (e.g., cmd.exe), the system will run this file under the system account instead of logon.scr. At this point, a user could issue a command such as Net User, usermgr.exe, or compmgmt.msc to reset the Administrator password.
