I have a computer running Windows Server 2003 that used to be on an office network.  I took it home to use as a stand alone computer.  I don't know the password for it and I am unable to contact anyone who used to know it.  What can I do about this?

You could use KonBoot or OphCrack to wipe/bypass the password

If you are not going to be using it on the office network anymore, you can go ahead and do a wipe change the OS. Or if you want to keep it as is @td512 gave some programs you can use to remove/bypass the password.

Just use the offlien password reset disk, its a registry editor. You can do this manually if you pull the harddrive out and mount it in windows and use regedit and load the sam hive
