    Forgot Windows 2000 admin password. Knoppix solution??

    I forgot the password for an old computer with windows 2000 on it. I've tried every combination of administrator password that exist and I still cant get in to windows. So then a friend tells me I can run knoppix and reset the password when I boot up to linux without having to actually know the admin password. Does anyone know how to do this or know of another solution to my problem?

    I could be wrong but I dont think Knoppix has this capability
    You can use other distro called AUSTRUMI at http://cyti.latgola.lv/ruuni/index_en.html which has the capability of resetting admin password.

    Hi,

    Try to install the "chntpw" utility from: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/ while running knoopix.

    It should help.
