Windows password reset

I have inherited a pc suite for welfare, however the users have changed the default passwords and the original set up was not administered properly, therefore no Admin PW to set up/change passwords. How do I change the PWs? I can get into BIOS but nothing else. Please advise/e-mail me.

Ultimate Boot CD and Hiren's Boot CD have various password resets and lots of other utils.

Or just burn this password one to CD/DVD.
