Missing Admin login after rejoining workgroup

I have a client who after rejoining a workgroup from a 2K3 domain lost the
administrator login function. He did this on his own for some reason.
Anyway, his local profile is working but he cannot delete a malfunction
printer. How do I either get back the admin login to give him admin rights
to the local box?

Thanks

When the login welcome screen is displayed, press CTL-ALT-DEL twice to bring
up the domain style login screen. There enter the local administrator ID
and password. Once logged in as admin you can elevate his ID to admin if
desired, or delete the printer while logged on leaving his local ID as user.
