Hi Carrgater31,

You don't want to reset the default system account password (and I even think it's even possible)
The system account is used for almost all services running on your machine, if you reset that, you're system will most likely won't be able to start again.

You should create a new service account for Backup Exec, and give it the appropiate rights, you can manage this password as you like.
