THX 1138 is exactly right. Once she logged into the Domain, her profile would be cached, so she can login even if she's not actually physically connected to the Domain.

Another thing she'll have to do is transfer ownership of the system on Dell's site. If she worked for Dell, she would know that.

Why exactly are you doing that? There are 2 ways to do this, but I'm not going to reveal the secret because I have a feeling you're a hacker trying to hack into a network, and I won't be held responsible for that.

I wash my hands of you and you're on your own.

Hacker? No. I wish I was that talented and not having to ask for advice on a general help forum. I have a client who wants her system cleaned up, she worked for Dell, and the machine is a Dell. She moved on to another company. She was given two laptops when she worked for Dell, when she left, they only wanted one of them back. However, it will not allow her to login anymore away from the office. It shows her username, however she cannot login. I tried to use my Hiren's Disk for Password Removal, but interestingly enough, when viewing the users in Hirens, there are no personal users listed. Only the Administrator, Guest, and a long form alphanumeric code. So there is no place to remove a password for her user. I removed it for all the visible users in Hiren's, and wrote back the changes, to no avail. So I just wanted to see. Worst case scenario, I pull the drive, dock it, backup her personal data, and reformat and reinstall Windows. But I was attempting to avoid all that.

Something still doesn't sound right. Once you log on successfully on the domain, it will build a local profile on the computer to which you can log on to without being on the domain.

I can take pics if that helps. Its just locked out. Period. Cannot logon. I at FIRST thought she was B.S'ing me and it was a stolen system, but the username that shows up at boot is definitely her name. She was in Global Site Optimization Testing at Dell.

If you are already bypassing security, why not just make a new user.

I am only accessing the system in Hiren's. I cannot create a new user in there. Only edit security for the current users. Which is not working..

Not even the administrator? seems odd, I would have her contact her old job and ensure that they were actually ok with her taking it, and then ask if they needed to wipe the data, and reset it back up.
