Hi, I’ve got an XP Pro machine on a Win2k3 domain which was showing some signs of malware infection. I had a helper scanning it with Malwarebytes for cleanup. He set the Boot.ini via msconfig to boot in safe mode in order to do a more complete scan. However, none of the normal passwords work on the machine. I usually always have a default local admin with one of 2-3 admin passwords I use but none of those are working. I’ve tried using the EBCD but that has not yielded any results. The NT password reset simply hangs on startup. I could re-image the machine but it is a shared public machine used by general faculty at my school and I don’t want to do that unless I have to. I’ve read through the forum and all of what I’ve seen isn’t exactly my situation (unless I’m missing it). I guess I’m just looking for a suggestion of what to try next? Install another OS? Purchase the Spotmau app? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jeff
