Turning off UAC will require the admin password also.

You could download a linux live CD and password removal tool but to be honest I would just reinstall the entire system using a standard windows CD and the license code from the bottom of the machine.
That way you know exactly whats on it, and it will no doubt run better due to not having allt he rubbish they have installed prior to you getting it.
