    Always make a password reset disk.Coming back to your problem, use Active Password
    changer(paid but should work fine for 30days).
    Another option is,build your own BartPE, with this as a plugin: Password Renew at sala source

    You can log into safe mode if your using XP and choose the admin account. You then create another admin account with no password. Reboot and log into the new account and you can remove the password from the other account. Reboot again and go back into safe mode and delete the second admin account you just made. When thats done you can reboot again and log in to your regular account without any problems. I dont know if this works in Vista or not. Ive never used a password on it as its only my laptop and Im the only one to touch it.
