Greetings again all,
I recently wrote in as a new member with the issue of Altering
Win2k's user names & pw's ! I may have not specificaly explained what my goal was here. ~ See, when I loaded Win2K
onto my second HDD within the same box of Win98 here, I followed all the Microsoft registration stuff,where it asks what ya want to name the Owner of the Computer , and what ya want to
logon as -meaning name and to choose a password.It also said something about -Do I want this to be a Group Work Station or a Single Domain or something like this. Well,I had NO idea of what this meant,so I do not even remember what I chose. So along the weeks here,I FORGOT my logon password,as it DID display
my USER name as the same as I Registered the operating System
as.But this was not ringing a bell yet for me,so I searched the web for tips on how to get back into a Win2k OS, without a PW !
I did see many ideas of either getting those PW crackers or just
Deleting those SAM files ,and even those Linux boot disks that can reset your PW from outside the OS ! So,I went for the DELETION of the SAM file ! Upon going BACK into the WIn2k OS,
I see that I had to go in as the ADMIN,and with a BLANK PASSWORD. This was fine,except ,NOW the LOGON USER name
states -Brian123ABC\ADMIN !!! Well,I want to get this part of MY
NAME with those numbers and letters OUT OF THERE ,,,and ONLY
have the word-ADMIN by itself !!! This is what I here is the way to LOGON to these type OS'S ,is through ADMIN,or as ANOTHER USER ,but WITHOUT priveledges !!! So,"HOW DO I ALTER THIS USER NAME" ,as there is NO user listed as Brian123ABC at all,but ONLY an ADMIN and a GUEST !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I have been through ALL of the ADMINISTRATIVE controls that I can find,and can NOT bring up anything that resembles THAT name at ALL!!! It MUST be STORED somewhere in the computer !!!
WHOEVER has a REPLY for me,can ya PLEASE be VERY Specific.
Thank You So Much In Advance,and Have Yourself A Wonderful Day %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Best 2 ya ALL out there,
