Use NTPASSWD (see google) to reset the admin or other account password.
As Windows 2000 was left with an unpatched security issue please do not buy this old OS.
I bought a used older School used Computer at a sale. A HP model D530,
x-86 based pc. processor x-86 15 model 2 step with intel processor, 74.5 mg memory. 90 % avail. This is a extra unit for me and need to be able to reset password or reboot system to factory specs. It has windows 2000 profes. installed. I don't have a recovery disk. and wondered if I can buy the license and reinstall it, or can I upgrade to a new version of windows. What are my options please. As it stands now, I can only use system logging in as a user limited access. Not able to get any updates or changes to current system like adding a printer, ect. without Administrators Password.
Thanks in advance for any help ....
