For ACS 4.2 password cannot be recovered from Windows registry.

A possible option would be to check on the ACS sever console

This will automatically login without any username/password provided the default setting "Allow automatic local login " is not changed.

Otherwise reinstall ACS and restore the database.

Make sure you are not accessing it from network. You need to login locally and create new admin users
