    Hi everyone. Well, that's just my problem. I changed the domain to MSHOME and rebooted the computer. After getting to the logon screen, I couldn't log in at all!

    No username I tried works, and I've also visited the safe mode, last known good configuration, everything on the F8 boot menu.

    I'm planning to make a network for my home but I haven't yet got the cables or the router, so connecting this laptop to the network is out of question.

    If you can help me I'll be extremely grateful!

    Thanks.

    Also, I don't have any Windows CDs because it was pre-installed by the manufacturer.

    Thanks.

    Hmm, nevermind, I managed to retrieve the Admin password using John the Ripper (password recovery program, search ggl for it)
