If you want a free alternative, you can use the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor from the Ultimate Boot CD.

If you never activated the local administrator, simply boot your computer in safe mode. Login as Administrator with no password, and change your password through the control panel user account interface or Manage.

Best of luck,
