The local policy does not permit interactive logon

I'm having a problem with a Windows XP Pro machine, an HP laptop that is
joined to a domain.

When I try to logon using my domain user ID/password it says: "The local
policy of the system does not permit you to logon interactively"

I used the machine one evening and then shut it down normally. When I
started it the next day it was displaying this message when I tried to
logon. At the time I was using it offline(not connected to the network with
the domain) I frequently use it offline. If I try to logon using the local
Administrator ID and password, using the local machine domain, it says "The
system could not log you on. Make sure your username and domain are
correct..." I'm fairly certain I'm using the
correct local administrator password.

Is there any way to get around this?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi

If you have access to the computer over a network:

http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=3yfLb.22533$P%[email protected]

or alternatively:
http://groups.google.com/[email protected]


If you have no network access, the procedure in the last link might be
doable with an offline registry editor as well, e.g. this one:

Thanks for the suggestions. The machine does not appear on the network. I
used the offline NT password reset utility and it indicated that there were
no usernames in the registry, so I assume something very bad has happened to
the registry. At this point I'm thinking my only option is to pull the hard
drive, get one of those 2.5-3.5 drive adapters and mount it in a desktop as
a secondary drive to access it that way.

Unless there's anything else that might work?

Thanks,
Chris
