    My 2 cents,

    Because I am always paranoid:

    If this machine has been compromised "acting strangely", the possibility
    exists that:

    1. All of your usernames & passwords have been captured (via Lopht Crack)
    and this information is thus suspect.

    2. A rouge user has been injected.

    Perhaps, exporting the user list, checking it against a known good list of
    users, then resetting all passwords may be a better course of action here:
    ***SNIP*** "You could use ADMT v2 to migrate from the infected domain into a
    clean domain, and it does migrate passwords." ***SNIP**

    hey all

    i just found one of the w2k servers to be infected and acting very
    unfortunately it is a domain controller and it has all the
    users/computers lists.

    how can i export these before reinstall in order to keep the exact same
    configuration (everything except passwords of course) ?
    i suppose this could be usefull to be done on a regular basis too...
