If you created any service account on this server e.g for your anti virus software or any other service account you can log in as this and then create another administrator, then log in as this administrator and manipulate the account as you wish. But if the system has only one account with admin right, then you will need a third party utility and your emergency repair disk to solve this problem.

Remember if you use a password reset tool, any files encrypted by that user will be unrecoverable.
