I recently purchased a computer from a "going out of business" sale for my fathers business and when I try to logon to Windows I get the logon screen with domain. I have a valid username and password but obviously i am not connected to a domain. I need to bypass this if possible. The safe mode trick that I see all over did not work. Please help as our business is suffering!!!
There are several Linux based Windows password recovery tools out there. You boot off the CD, follow the instructions, and in no time you should be able to reset the Windows password. A quick Google search will turn some up, but I've had great luck with the one at this website: http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
I hope that helps!
