    if they got the time, you could probably boot a live cd version of linux that has crack of john the ripper installed and try and brute force the password.. i'm not sure what the effects of wiping the SAM file are but i'm sure someone here could help with that...

    In most cases the "Offline NT password recovery tool" (google for it) will suffice.

    It's not guaranteed but it's easy and quicker than reinstalling.

    There is no need to try to crack the old password, can simply change it to a new one.

    This sort of problem has been posted before on this forum. Why not start with an advance search on antionline.com then on google.com

    but first you'll have to find the program in one way or the other

    Uh, just so you know, that kind of activity is frowned upon here - being that this is your first post, consider it a warning..
