You're on a Network? At Work?

Why do people keep coming on here to ask how to install games and/or porn on their work computers?

The Admin has a password which you don't know for the very reason that you don't install programs on his computers! Live with it.

Refer to the last post I replied to about NTFSDOS and the SAM file. You could also just change it back to anything using a linux boot disk and some programs. I have an ISO (for cd boot) to change an NT/2000/XP/2003 Password (without knowing the origional, just rewrites the SAM file).

Haha! Probably tell him then why don't you! If we're lucky he'll ruin his life by not doing anything in lessons and spend years regretting doing nothing.
