Talk to your domain admin maybe? Regular users aren't normally allowed to join computers adhoc to domain. At least not if the sys/domain admin is sane. ;-) An administrator folder is most always created on a machine at install. It doesn't necessary imply a domain admin has been logged on to that particular machine. Anyway, a question like this kinda' sounds like you're up to no good... -- /Sorin >-----Original Message----- >From: mswindowsxp-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:mswindowsxp- >bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Mike Rouillard >Sent: Sunday, February 28, 2010 10:40 PM >To: mswindowsxp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx >Subject: [mswindowsxp] domain administrator password > >Hello, I have a windows xp machine that used to be part of a domain.
