Default Need Administrator Password

So my gf got in a fight with her sister a few days ago, and her sister was being a....well...you can guess...and her sister changed the Administrator password. Is there any way to hack this password? Or is the only solution to get the password to reformat?

probably the easiest way out of this is just to get your gf to apologise with her sister and make up and then get her to tell her the password.

Yes there is a way you can get the password back, many in fact. Question answered. Nobody should provide methods of recovering this password because...

Reasoning:
New member (2 posts) as of 9/20/06 and asking for "password recovery" help.
We do not know the circumstances or if the situation he provided us is true
Other people could use the thread for miscellaneous stuff.

I recomend you to read this article, and I use EBCD to reset passwords, and ophcrack to crack them.

Reopened.

He is not asking for activation codes for anything. A password is totally different to an activation code.
