Q

Bypassing a logon password

I have just upgraded Windows NT but the logon password is not known, so I tried the default password administrator, but this is not known. Can it be bypassed?
Yes, grab the tool of NTLocksmith from sysinternals.com ( http://www.winternals.com/products/repairandrecovery/locksmith.asp) or Peter Nordahl's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor tool ( http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/).
