  1. You could crack the password with Ophcrack:

    http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/

    But keep in mind that this only works on semi-weak passwords, otherwise it can take ages.

    You could also use NTPWEdit which will simply overwrite the password SAM file:

  2. Try to use the net user command. e.g. "net user Administraor 123".
  3. There's an option in computer management named local users and groups..
    from there you can set admin password easily..
    Otherwise using erd commander is an easy way,,
  4. start the computer in safe mode and change it
