I have a client that needs permissions on her vista machine to be changed in order for her to be able to share printers and files, she does not remember the admin password as someone else set it up for her. I know how to reset password for admin under XP with ERD commander, but how about in a vista machine? Is there a manner of doing this without using third party program? thanks!

If she is logged in as a Administrative User or the first account created on the Vista PC (which by default is an admin user) then she can open computer management and change the Admin Password for the Administrator User.
