I have a dual boot laptop, Windows Vista and Linux Mint. I've forgotten the Windows Administrator¬† password for Vista, can I reset it using Linux? I've seen the IT guys at work do it using a Linux¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† liveCd but that might have been for older versions of Windows.

Hope it helps

Such a search will invariably take you to http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/. If you really want to be hardcore and switch off the admin password through a Linux live boot CD, then go to the FAQ on that site and there's some instructions how you can do that.
