    How to change the administrator password

    First you will want to download a software named WINTERNALS as an iso image at www.isohunt.com, once you done that burn it to a cd with an iso burner software.
    • Once thats done you will turn the computer that you want to change the password off and when its booting up press F10, or F12, or F8 varies depending on the computer.
    • You need to find the one that says BOOT DEVICE and it gives you a lot of other options like booting up from a floopy disk, but you want the one that says CDROM
    • Insert the disk and press enter twice this will start the cd and it will say LOADING WINTERNALS then you will get a dialog box asking you what operating system to boot from so choose Windows sp2 and press enter
    • You will notice that you get a desktop similar to windows, now go to start and look for the application named LOCKSMITH and press enter
    • Now it will ask you what account to change the password
    • Choose what ever account you want preferably choose the administrator account
    • Now change the password, and press enter.
    • And your almost done, now press start and press log off and choose restart.
    • This will Restart the computer as usual now you can log on as the administrator account with the password you set.

    Hey great tutorial. I downloaded it and I actually learned a lot about how vulnerable a windows system can be. Thank you for teaching me something. And, hey, like I said, this is a great way to get administrator privileges without knowing the admin password, but, you might not always have the download power.
    Everything has its cons.

    this wouldnt help much as in most of the cases you wudn't b logged in as an administrator which is required in this method... so we may land up getting "5 Anness Denied". so the article written is fine... unless the BIOS is secured with pass :p

    any thing that boos on the CD or DVD cannot be easily booted with USB drives, I have tried many iso's. nothing boots via USB. it needs a program to write the MBR of the USB and other procedures are there.

    hmmm great tutorial, I think this is a much better way than "net user", this is not only password changing but there are many other things we can do with it.
