Obtain Windows CD (XP, Vista, 7, 8, doesn't matter process is largely the same)
Boot off Windows CD into setup
At setup hold shift key and press F10
This will bring up a command window
In the command window type "control userpasswords2" and hit enter
Highlight admin account and reset and set a new password.
