Recently an employee was fired from our plant. Well this person usually logs in under administrator for this machine. Unfortuanetly he changed the admin password to something else. Since he's gone now we can't get into this computer. I believe this is the only account on this computer. How do I go about logging in without doing a reinstall to this computer? My associates need a desk and computer to work at without this they can't work.
