Expired Password within Windows 2000

    I have a friend who updated his PC from Windows 98 to Windows 2000 a few
    years ago. HE has religiously amended his password every six weeks as the
    system request him to do. He had been informed that his password would
    expire in 4 days but did not change it. He then never used the PC for a
    number of days and tried to login after the expiry date. The computer now
    tells him that his password has expired and won't allow him access to the
    PC. Is there any way around this situation?

    I am unsure as to whether he set an administrator password when he
    originally updated but he has tried accessing the system using the username
    administrator but to no avail. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks

    Real meaning: "Learn a whole new operating system to reset your password."

    Linux makes you fucking stupid.
