    Does anyone know how to delete an administrator account from another os on another partition (or using a live cd)?

    I dont have access to the administrator account and i need to remove the other administrator account

    If you can access the admin account through safe mode then all you have to do to remove the other account passwords is go into User Accounts in the control panel and either delete the accounts or, I'm not sure, remove the account passwords.

    Sorry guys ill clarify a bit
    I have an operating system with three accounts on it, 2 administrators and 1 limited
    I need to delete one of the administrators but i have no access to the other
    I can plug the hard drive into other computers to access it from there
    thanks

    Then I recommend picking up the UBCD and running the NT password removal tool.
