How can I get the password that I forgot to a stand-alone computer running windows 2000

Question

I have lost (or forgotten or someone changed) the Administrator password to a stand-alone computer running Windows 2000. Is there anyway to get into the administrator portion of the computer. I cannot add programs or do updates without this logon.

Thanks

This question was answered on August 26, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

What I have seen people do when this happens to them is theyve gone to the source, in other words the website where they got it from, this never happened to me before, but you said someone maybe changed it, if they did thats a different story, they probably had access to your NIC card, anyhow on your computer there is a option that asks you if you forgot your password, try that.
