Does anyone know any tools that can reset the password on an account? My friends mother apparently forgot the password to the admin account on her computer and now they're in a bit of a fix. I heard of something called ERD commander that can do everything i need, but i havent been able to find it very easily.

They run windows vista (not sure if its 32 or 64 bit).

If this doesnt work, my only alternative is to back up all the files on their primary account, make a new account, restore the files on the new account, and delete the old one. I would rather not resort to something this extreme, so can anyone help me out?
