I think I have to reinstall Windows 2000, 'cause I don't remember the Administrator password nor my own password, which is an Aministrator too...

But I wonder if any files, e.g. *.doc files, are deleted when doing so. And the map system, is it all going to be built up once again?

i may be wrong, but if win 2000 is installed like win 98, you don't lose any of your files like doc files IF you are simpling reinstalling 2000 on top of the 2000 that's already there.

i also don't know whether reinstalling over 2000 will erase the win 2000 file that has the passwords or not.
