which OS is that from where u r tryin to recover the admin password???

if its a windows OS,forget it,
only administrator can access the .acl files,no way a client can recover or even read the SAM files...

if you have physical access to the box, there are boot disks galore that will reset the default local admin password for you.

The best app to use is ERD Commander by Winternals. There is a section called "Locksmith" that will change the Administrator password.
