When I get to the logon screen it tells me to push control alt del, after that I am at the logon screen and I dont remember any password. Is there a way to bypass the logon screen so i can change my password and access my computer?

There is, but the way to do it depends on what login you would normally use to access this machine. Do you have a username like JSmith or something like that or is the username Administrator. The way that you go about resetting the password depends on which one of these you normally would log in with, so I need more information before I can accurately help you.

I use Admin as my username.

The use of "Admin" as a username instead of the default "Administrator" leads me to believe that this is not the default administrator account for this domain. In order to reset you password you will need to log into the server as "Administrator" using the password for that account. Once logged in as the Domain Administrator, you will be able to access Active Directory and change the password for the "Admin" login.

If you are not the Domain Administrator, please contact them and let them know that you need to change your password and they will be able to do it for you. If you are the Domain Administrator, you might be able to have someone else with Administrator Level access log into the server using their login and change your password through AD.

If you are the Domain Administrator and you have actually forgotten the Domain Administrator password, there are ways to reset it, but you need to have LOCAL access to the machine. I should also add that if you are looking to hack, break, crack, or otherwise gain unauthorized access to the server in question, you should stop now and re-think your plans. Any reliable password recovery tools for the server environment are meant only for authorized use by Administrators who have knowledge of the system that they are working with. It is this knowledge that will enable a good administrator to successfully recover or reset a password without causing damage to the system.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
