As answered in another question, the links in the following URL provide a number of tools that you can use to reset a forgotten local administrator password: http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm

You either need to crack the administrator password; there's third party software that can change the admin password.

or

Do a parallel installation of Windows.  Install Windows on a different drive to the C: drive.  If you have another drive for data, a D: drive for example, you can use that but be careful to choose the option to NOT format the drive.  If you don't have a spare partition, you can fit another hard drive.

or

If you just want to get the data off the hard disk, (and it's a single disk), take the disk out and put it in another machine running windows.
