    Hi, I have forgotten my admin account password. I have one guest user on my computer. I want to install additional software, but my machine does not allow me to do any changes without the admin password. I did not do a reset disk. did not even realize that i should be. After I get help with resetting this, will I lose any data that I have already put in? I have just eailed all documents out so these will not be lost. Help. Thanks, Dotfromks -- dotfromks

3.Membership of user in Active Directory


I am asking this question in this forum partly it is 
active directory related and security related. Hope I am 
in the correct forum. Otherwise pls advise.

I installed Norton Antivirus on my local workstation, I 
can only do so when I log in as administrator. Well fine.

After installation, I login to the DOMAIN with my own 
While trying to run live update (Norton Antivirus) on this 
workstation, I was unable to do so due to I was 
assigned "domain user" in active directory. 

But when I was assigned "Domain Admin" or any other 
administrators rights in the active directory, I was able 
to perform liveupdate sucessfully.
Also, if I login as Administrator locally, I am able to do 
so as well.

My question is wouldn't it be cumbersome for someone to 
login as administrator locally to perform liveupdate then 
login back to his/her own profile ?

Also, doesn't it defeats the purpose of security whereby 
one needs to be assigned "administrator" rights or login 
locally as administrator to just perform a liveupdate ? 

BTW, I did try to add myself (domain user) in the security 
properties and set to full control and propagate 
throughout the entire drive C:, but still it does not help.

Also, I am unable to add myself(domain user) as a member 
of the local computer administrator.

Can anyone please advise on this as I have been searching 
the answer for months on this until I finally post this 

Thanks very much.. :(

4.Active Directory Users with Group Membership Export to Excel

Hi, can someone help me here. I'm not that great at scripting.......
Here's what I am looking to do....
I need to enumerate ALL active directory users THAT ARE NOT DISABLED,
into a spreadsheet with a list of their groups. For example, column A
and B on the spreadsheet is the first and last name, column C is the
groups that the user is a member of. I need to also make sure NOT to
list any accounts that are disabled.
The excel order is like:
John     Doe
                      Domain User
                      Any other Group
Jane    Doe
                      Domain Users
Randy Top
