Default Forgotten passwords

Hi,

I have a problem, I recently made some changes on a laptop with the workgroup on this laptop, now it would let me log in with the username and password. I know the username and password are right because I was able to log in before the change. I don't know the Administrator password either. I need to get into this laptop becasue there is alot of work on there. Is there a way around this or would I have to format the drive and lose everything. It's windows 2000 professional. IS there any reliable programs that can reset or retrieve the lost password?
