Access To 2nd Administrator Account

Posted: 11-22-2004, 12:43 PM
There are 2 separate administrator accounts on my machine. I have the
password for the first but not for the second. When I go to Documents and
Settings in explorer and click on the second user I get the following
message.

The documentation says that administrator privileges allows you access to
any file on the system.

<account name>...is not accessible. Access is denied

How do I get access to the second admin account?

Thanks,



Access To 2nd Administrator Account

You could log into the account U do have access to and then strip the
password from the 2nd through user accounts in control panel.
