Default Changing the PC administrator?

At work we have a network with 5 stations. Each station has it own so called adminstrator. Problem now is we have some new employees and since they are not the stations admin they cannot excess everything they need to including virus guard update installs. I know the old admin's username and passwords so I can do these installs and such but that doesn't work for the new users.


Does anyone know how to change the PC administrator on a workstation running windows XP professional version 2002?
Thanks
Bob

When logged in as an admin u can change the other accounts from normal users to admins.
