XP Admin Password
I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but I thought I'd ask. I have a company-issued laptop (IBM ThinkPad), and they have it completely locked down. You can't do anything to customize it because everything requires the Admin password to change. I'd like to get the password so I can set it up the way I want (and also to give the Company the finger just a little bit, to be honest). The BIOS is also password protected, so I can't make it boot from the CD. Is there any possible way to hack the password? I'm think the reason the ThinkPad was selected is that it's supposed to be inpenetrable, and coupled with being unable to boot any way exect normally I'm probably out of luck. I've tried downloading programs like Cain and Abel to crack it, but they require the Admin password to install, so that doesn't work.
Obviously any fix to this problem wil require a great deal more computer expertise than I possess, so I'm hoping there is some genius out there with a couple of free minutes on his hands....If this is in fact impossible (which I think it might be), then I'd appreciate knowing that also.
Thanks for any help in advance....
