Getting around a password controlling Vista

I have a computer running Vista.   One of the users put his account as the controller on the computer, and this person is no longer around.   But to make any changes, it is asking for the password.    I have tried to use a password cracker, but that does not work on VIsta.    Does this mean the only way for me to get around this is to re-install the whole Vista operating system?
