Yup.

Use this:
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

to create a linux boot disk, boot off of the boot disk and change the admin
password to blank (or whatever)

Works fine with XP/2000, but it will botch up any EFS-encrypted files.

Good Luck.

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?
