Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1. This will help you reset the admin password. ($45!!! No way! Here is a program that does the same thing for FREE!)

2. No, you cannot restrict users from dropping files of a specific type of file into a folder. (again I hate to disagree but of course you can!)

To restrict users from saving specific file types you can either use group policy via active directory, group policy locally, registry edits or impose a antivirus restriction prohibiting specific file types.

It all really depends on your network setup.

    GREAT INFO! Mrdenny as always! just to let the original poster know that the reset of passwords with that utility you offered only works on LOCAL accounts which is par for the course for almost any password reset utility like that. if it is a domain account he is trying to reset he would have to have domain admin access to the domain controller.
