Locksmith from <a

nternals</a> works quite well.

There are linux utilities for resetting the password as well, however I've
heard they can have problems with writing to NTFS disks.  I have not used
any of these.

Other than use the WinXP installation disc, is there another way to
re-capture Admin privileges on a machine that was previously given a
password for the Admin account?
