It's possible to do this using hirens disc but you'd need to know what you're doing in order to go through that route, only way for a standard user to remove an admin password would be to reset the machine to factory settings and setup with new password

I have used both Ophcrack and OfflineNT with success. Ophcrack is probably more user friendly:
