    I used to use it for auditing purposes (before you shout: yes, with the appropriate safeguards and clearance).

    Either that or if you can afford downtime, boot into a Bart PE to change the admin password to what you want.

    In which case I suggest Cain, it recover MS passwords as well as a number of other things. Have used it many times on XP, apparantly works well on 2003 as well.
