XP Pro Domain to Workgroup issue

Specs: Windows XP
Hi, this will most likely be a "here we go again" type of thread, but I have not found any newer developments on this.

Have a Dell Lattitude D610 laptop, running Xp Pro, SP2. Recently, I inadvertantly changed the net settings to workgroup, to set up a home network. Once this was done, I can not log on to the machine.

History: this is a work laptop, however, the HD is mine (had viruses, so the company gave me a new HD). The two HD's were both from a master image

Obviously, I could send the HD back to the techies at work, however, this is a 5 year old HD that we are talking about.

I tried ophcrack to get the admin password, but none was found. There was a guest account, with no password, but it would not work.

I can simply toss this HD and forget it, but I like a challenge and wish to crack this problem. Any thoughts?

If you don't have a local account, or know the local Administrator password, you'll have to hack it.

Not free, but really works. Not bad for $20.
