Local account locked out

    Hi,
    I have only 2 accounts on my XP desktop i.e. 'administrators' and
    'sid'. I use 'sid' only and I have forgotten the 'administrators'
    password. My problem is last night I accidentally set the 'Deny logon
    locally' to yes for 'sid'. Ever since I cannot log on to my desktop.
    I have an XP laptop thru which I can view my desktop's file system
    (using the 'sid' account). In other words, the account 'sid' is active
    and valid, and can access the desktop remotely but cannot logon locally
    in interactive mode.
    Question is how do I access the desktop's local security policy to
    reset the 'deny logon locally' right for the 'sid' account.
    Thanks mucho in advance
    Sid

    Download an offline password recovery tool. Just google for it. You can burn
    a CD and reset the password for the administrator account (Always make the
    administrator password something you can remember), the log on and fix the
    policy settings for the sid account.
