You can reset the admin password with the windows offline password changer disk - there's instructions on the site on how to do so- its pretty much creating a live cd or usb, booting into it and following the instructions. There's dodgier ways - actually recovering the old password with brute force methods for example, but most take longer, or are... dodgy.
