Start windows in safe mode

Start windows in safe mode and log onto the account in question and turn off user account passwords in the Control Panel.

If you don't know how to

If you don't know how to enter safe mode, press F8 repeatedly during the boot sequence and you should be prompted with the option to enter safe mode.

Also it would be a good idea

Also it would be a good idea to setup a non administrator account just for him that way if he does something like this on his account you can log into your password protected account that he doesnt have access to and just delete his account and make him a new one instead of having to completely reinstall windows on the hard drive.
