Need access to an admin account?

Hello, wonderful people of Toms Hardware!


I recently purchased a Nextbook 10.1 from a second-hand shop it was originally a display model from a Walmart.

However, the issue I am encountering is due to it being a display model all admin abilities are locked behind an admin account that is password protected!

Sadly they did not provide me with the password for said admin account.

I do have access to a local account which gives me the abilities to do basic things, however, installing programs is out of the question on this account.

So is there any way I can get into the admin account or possibly gain admin rights somehow?
