You may be able to change the Administrator user's password in Windows. Try
the:

Start --> Run
control userpasswords2
OK.

method and highlight the "Administrator" user and click on the "reset
password" button and reset the password there.

If worse comes to worse, you can indeed "hack" the administrators password
using one of the many methods of doing so on the Internet.
