Hello,

I received a computer from a friend and it was connected to his work domain. I have his username and password. It has windows 2000 professional. I want to delete the domain and/or do an automatic logon. I have gone into the registry.exe and tried to do a forcelogon and such as I have read on the internet. It worked once but that was it.

What I would like to do is remove his work domain? Or if not possible find an easier way to do an automatic logon and bypass his domain logon. I can't disable the security feature where you have to do ctrl alt del to logon.

Thanks for any help.

What you have to do is login, and right click on the my computer icon and select properties. after that click the computer name tab and change the computer to a workgroup. The only problem you will have is that you need ADMINISTRATOR right to get it off the domain. Unless his username and password that he gave you is an administrator, then you should be fine. This will take it off the domain and leave you with a standard login. Just make sure that before you restart it from the change of domain to workgroup, CHANGE THE USERNAME AND PASSWORD! (control panel>Users). Create a new user or change the user that is already there. IF you cant get the administrator password, then the only thing you can do it reformat it.
