    Yes, of course, the same way you add or change the password on your own
    account.

    By the way your Caps Lock key is stuck.

    The same way you'd set or change a password for any other account.
    Simply log in using an account with administrative privileges:

    1) Start > Run > "control userpasswords2" to modify the desired account(s).

    2) Right-click My Computer > Manage > Local Users and Groups > Users >
    right-click Administrator > Set password.

    Please unstick your CapsLock key. Posting in all caps, as you have
    done, is the Usenet equivalent of shouting, and is considered very rude
    by a large number of people. More importantly, posting in all caps
    makes the post harder to read, further reducing your chances of getting
    help; a great many people won't even try to read such a message. If you
    really want help, simply comply with the dictates of common courtesy and
    the conventions of the milieu.
