|This started when I changed the settings for networking, as I was not able to connect to the internet, or network with any other computers. |
I was able to get my computer where I could access it again by using Ubuntu and renaming the SAM file and rebooting the system. now I have internet access, and not asked for a password.
I have the same problem with a computer at work running the same o/s, and happened when I tried to backup the computer to another computer. I'm thinking that this is a problem with windows 2000 pro, as I have never had that happen to me with any other operating system.
