Two OS, same platform - need to edit account on initial platform

  1. Hi guys

    This is kind of complicated, so Ill try my best to be as straightforward and descriptive as possible...

    Im kind of the tecchie person here at work. One of the employees set an administrator password on his computer. We had to have access his computer, so I stupidly over-installed windows...it's Windows XP Professional Ed. Now the computer has 2 Platforms same OS... (Windows directory is the initial platform and Windows.0 directory is the newer platform)

    Is there anyway I can now edit the old administrative account? I've tried everything possible like control userpasswords2... and it only edits the newer platform settings...

    Any ideas

    Thanks guys
    Michelle

    Offline NT Password editor. Downloadable as a Boot CD. Just google it.
