I have this WINXP machine at work that was a member of a domain. It let me remove it from the domain, no problem. But, my dumb ass forgot to add a local account, so I was locked out. I got into the machine and reset the local 'admin' account to a blank password ( I used that hack that uses RAWRITE, can't remember exactly what you call it, appeared to do the job though). Now, I go to login with that 'admin' account, and it gives me the generic can't login error message. Soooo, I go to safe mode with my regular user account ... and basically can't do anything ... can't even begin any hacks because I only have read rights on \winxp on down. Pleaaaaase, anyone have any suggestion ????????????
Read my Microsoft Word and VBSCRIPT tutorial (posted in NubieHQ). Once finished, the following code can be used for writing files:
Dim intFile As Integer intFile = FreeFile Open "filename.txt" For Write as #intFile Write(strBlah, #intFile)
You can always google up more on file reading and writing with vbscript. And yes, there are a couple syntax errors in the above code. If you can't fix it with a few googles... I'm not going to hold your hand.
Also try googling for the windows API and other things you can call to disable local restrictions. Its all in the code, which is readily supplied for us online by M$.

That should then let you go into safe mode with an account using admin priviledges.
