Password out of synch between W2K & Local SQL Server on my Worksation

I had this problem in version 7 and dont remneber How I solved it!!
I have installed a local SQL Server (2000 aka version 8) on my
Worksation (W2K), I have picked NT authuntication.
Everything was fine untill I changed my password. Now SQL server can
not start because it fails to login. The old password is embedded
somwhere and I cant egt to it!!!
My workstation is on a network, so the password is my network
Everythinng is MS on our network.

Any help would be appreciated.

Right-click My Computer, select Manage. In MMC find Services, and
in the list find the MSSQL Service. Right-click, select Properties
and there switch to the Log On tab. Change the password.

It's probably a good idea to have a special user for SQL Server that
can't log in interactively, so you don't have to change the password.

Hi all, how can I check a user/password in a LDAP ? I don't want to connect with this user, I would like to connect to LDAP with a ADMIN_LOG/ADMIN_PWD, then do a query to find the user and check the password.
