Windows password reset

I have inherited a pc suite for welfare, however the users have changed the default passwords and the original set up was not administered properly, therefore no Admin PW to set up/change passwords. How do I change the PWs? I can get into BIOS but nothing else. Please advise/e-mail me.

Have you tried to get in in safe mode and use the administrator acount if it shows.

The previous user has said they have not got any passwords that work. Disasterous eh?

Ultimate Boot CD and Hiren's Boot CD have various password resets and lots of other utils.

Or just burn this password one to CD/DVD.
