Recovering from lost Windows Administrator’s password


Today i cleared the Administrator’s password of Windows 2003 Server… This server is installed as a VM and nobody knew the Administrator’s password for it.

I booted this server with an iso file which has utilities to clear the password. It has very small footprint (3.6MB approx.). I am not sure whether it will work on all kind of hardware because you cannot include all drivers in this much small footprint.  So one should be lucky to have it working.


Download this small utility from this website ( a boot CD).

Disclaimer -: Please do not hold me responsible for any kind of Misuse of this information.. I have provided it because i think it will help the Sysadmin and users who get into trouble by forgetting the Admin password of old servers..
