    My brother is completely locked out of his machine. Why? Don't even ask.

    Is there some kind of hack/tool to change the password? Oh, he's completely locked out. Roofles.

    Well, you have to change the admin password, not just his password. The admin account cannot be deleted, but it can be renamed.

    We went though this before with DVD's - I had my time on the soap box. Reseting your own password isn't hacking - hell WIndows XP expects you to forget your password (ie MS had soooo many people bitch and moan in W2K) that they allow you to make a password reset disk within the OS. If he said, "I want to hack into my brother's computer", then it would have been locked.

    Presumption of guilt in legal terms :)

    Think about what you've just said. He's trying to get back on his machine. He needs a boot disk. It's not like he's going to break into someone's house and boot up with the diskette.

    The software used to create ISO's, BINs etc... are perfectly legal programs. Asking how to use those programs is no different than asking how you spell check in Word. But coming on here and saying I have this bin file but no cue file is pretty fucking stupid. It only takes two seconds to realize this isn't a problem if you ripped the CD yourself, it only becomes a problem when there's no cue file to begin with (ie you didn't download it) and you can't create one again.

    I can think of a thousand examples but basically as soon as there is no doubt that the person is doing something illegal, it's locked.

    Newbie. :mamoru:

    There is no DOS in windows 2000. Also, you can't make a standard "boot disk" to get to a DOS prompt on a NTFS system. Take your pick. ;)
