Password Advice

#1
Right we have arrived in theatre and started taking over our accounts etc, however some mong who has left theatre has taken the password for the work laptop with him. He is down as the administrator as well which makes it even better, can anyone tell me how the hell we get round this please.

Thanks in advance

He's now on comp leave and no-one in their rear party can find him.
I was hoping to be able to do it ourselves and not take it to the G6 lads/lasses
as I dont want to name and shame him when he may have had other things on his mind
and may not have been the mong I said he was however if he did it to be funny then
i hope his next sh*ts a hedgehog.

I changed my password while drunk before and forgot it the next morning. Turns out there's a hidden administrator on XP by default. Restart the system and keep pressing f8. When the windows screen appears select safe mode, then hidden admin. Then you can do one of 2 things: 1) Create a new administrator account from there and use that one. 2) change the original admin password by running cmd in the start menu. When the dos box comes up type "net user administrator password " followed by the new password you want to set. I went with option 1 myself so I'm not sure if 2 works. If the last guy turned off hidden admin you're shagged sideways.
