Cannot login, time is wrong

Someone in my organization cannot login to the domain, she gets a message saying that the time is off sync and does not let her login. I tried to login locally with the administrator account, but nobody knows the admin password for that local machine. Is there another way to get in and change the time to the right one?
Thanks!

Disconnect it from the network, then try to log in using the normal network credentials.  It should verify login information against cached credentials and allow login.  You can then correct the time, logout, reconnect network connection and log back in.

If you aren't able to get into the desktop you may be able to resolve the issue by ensuring that the BIOS date/time is correct. I've seen systems that fail to log in to the network if they are five or more minutes off of the reported server time.
