    Do you have domain admin rights? If you do, just open DSA.MSC from the CMD and right-click his user account and choose "Reset Password".

          well it's a computer that was gave to me and it used to be a work computer it has a lot of good programs that I don't think I can replace so I did not want to uninstall windows or mess any of the programs up...I was not sure if I change the admin.password it would not let me us some of the programs so I thought the user name would work better for now untill I need admin. rights................what do you think I should do to make sure I don't mess up the programs? P.S If wanted to see something in the computer of a techer I would just us linux I am not a student just a stay at home mom that has a good program I don't want to trash...

            Just to clarify.
            Are you part of a network with a domain controler or a standalone computer?

                Do you have the option to log on locally to the computer, i.e. not to the domain? Do you have a drop down list on the logon page? If you do then you might be able to crack the local administrator's password.

                  At logon next to domain you can uncheck it and it has a drop down for the domain..

                    Do you have a prompt like this:



                    i.e. you can select the computer to log on to or the domain.
