You need the password, as Microsoft have designed NT4/2K to stop you doing just what you are trying.

There are programs avilable to do this, but they are not cheap ($100+) and I have never found a freeone.

Best advice, ask who ever u borrowed it from for a local user name and password or the Administrator Password.

Hi there,

You'll need to be setup as a user to logon to the machine. The Administrator password is setup when the machine is installed (although it can be changed at a later date). If you haven't been given the Administrator password or a different user ID then you'll need to speak to the person who leant you the machine.

Kind Regards,
Rob

I agree with whats already been said, although its always worth trying a blank password or just password
