Are you sure you are allowed to use this computer in such a way? You better talk to the municipality that gave you the laptop before you mess with it.

It was given to me as a gift for completing a computer technology course. So I'm sure that I'm allowed to do whatever I want with the laptop.

You better make sure. That is all I'm saying.
If it is yours then maybe they can remove the restrictions that are on it.

I tried contacting them but since we're on a holiday, the office is closed until next week.

Then you should wait...because if you do not have permission, this would be consider thief, and we would be accessories to that.

Yeah, I think that would be the best choice. If I'm allowed to do whatever I want I'll try to reset the password. The Boot DVD wasn't compatible with the OS anyway. Thanks for the help. How do I give you a rating?

I spoke to my colleague just now and he told me that he contacted them on Friday (he's also under this Group Policy restrictions). They told him that they won't help with easing the restrictions but that he's welcome to do whatever he wants. So, I will go back to my original plan and try to reset the admin password.

The password for the Admin doesn't need to be resetted. I tried logging in with a blank passwrod and it should have worked. The only problem is that I get a message saying "Your account has been locked." (rough translation since I use a Swedish OS). Is there a way around this?

A) A boot DVD doesn't need anything from the OS...there is no such thing as it being "incompatible."
B) Just format the silly thing and install whatever OS you want. Quit fiddling with trying to undo something that you probably can't undo anyway.
