ive just gained an old pc running on widows 2000. it was given to me by a friend who has not switched it on for the best part of a year and has now no idea of the password.

he has lost the original boot up disk also.

is there anyway to get past this stage and on to the pc??

According to microsoft this task cannot be accomplished.

However I did find the information below...Keep in mind this is found information and I believe that any info that I have not personally tried to be risky. Even the links from that website may contain surprises...(unpleasant ones) Ecspecially when it pertains to retrieving a 2000 admin password. Be sure you understand what Im saying its as clear as I can make it....good luck!
