Does your wifes account have admin privileges ?

If so create a reset password disc through her account !

Click this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930381 it shows you how !

Do a quick google search; there are quite a few tools that will aid you in recovery. We just are not that type of forum. Sorry.
