Administrator Password

Hello Sir,

I am using Windows 2000 Professional.

I forgot the administrator password.

Whether any free software to recover or replace the password or any idea

Thank you

for your situation the simplest is to use the open-source Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to replace the password
