Unfortunately there is no easy way to recover an administrative password if
you did not create password recovery disk when you created the admin account
The best method I have found is the following software. You can install
the product on any computer, create a boot CD, DVD, floppy disk, or USB
stick and then take that boot disk to your PC and run it. When you boot
from the disk, it has very easy step by step instructions to find and
remove the password for any account on the system.
