set up as administrator on my employees hp laptops

HP Recommended
hp elite book 8460
Microsoft Windows Vista

We are a small business of 5 employee and we all work off of our laptops. We recently terminated an employee and were unable to access that employee's laptop. We would like to know if with the new incoming employee who will be set up on the same laptop, can the owner set up herself as an administrator so she has access anytime an employee is terminated?

If so how do we do that?

 

Thanks

If you are really running Vista as the OS and it is not a modified version for a particular business use, it should be fairly easy.  At worst, you can reinstall the OS but investigate the NTPassord program.  If the password is a BIOS password, it will be more difficult.  You will know pretty fast when the password reset is tried.

 

If the other laptops can be used and logged into, it would be important to add another administrator account for the owner, to each computer before this happens again.


I'm not an HP employee.
