I'm hoping somebody can help. The company I work for has an old server that used to sit in another office. We moved offices, and setup a completely new network. I used to connect to it remotely using Remote Desktop Connection on the PC I work on, bUt it has been that long since I used it that I cannot remember what the administrator password is, and I need this password to remove the PC from the old domain. Is there any way of finding out (via the registry maybe), what password I put in when I used remote desktop dconnection to access it in the past? I'm guessing not and it's probably a long shot, but if there is a way, it would help me loads.

If it is part of a domain and you accessed it with your account then your account password should work. However if you are trying to get the default administrators account password from the machine you will not find it. There are some programs available on the net that will allow you to reset the password.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
