If someone uses this on his or her desktop system and changes the local administrator account pasword, and if that is the only administrator account, then you will have to do something similar to regain access. However, understand two things: First, if the computer is joined in a domain, domain administrator accounts are able to access the computer remotely; and finally, you shouldn't allow this in your company. There should be policy -- with a punishment for abusing it. If users are not allowed administrative access, then they should be punished for attacking their machines, just like you would punish an outsider who broke in.
