    Hi,

    Im dealing with a w2000 server machine which has had a confusingly
    locked down admin account, and no documentation. Whenever i try to
    access the 'network settings' in the control panel, i get a
    'insufficient permissions' error. I believe that the former admin locked
    even the administrator out of this control panel, through a registry
    setting.

    Does anyone know WHICH registry setting?

    thanks

    nick
