Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete (sometimes need to do it twice) to get the standard login prompt - login as administrator.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Boot the computer in safe mode.  This will give you the icon for administrator.  When you're in safe mode as administrator, you can go to control panel>users and take the password off of your account or change it.
