[MODERATOR EDIT - REMOVAL OF HACKING CD]

If not then use  http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

This is slightly more involved but aloows you to basically "black" any existing passwords for any user on the machine.

Should be a guide on the site.

Blanking the password option has always worked for me in the past using that software

what laptop are we talking about?
