If you have some other login which you remember, please log from it and then try searching some brute force program like L0pht which can get you encrypted passwords back. It can be very time consuming. And if you dont remember any usernames then re-install.

There are many utilities you can boot your PC with which you then can use to reset the password. At least one of them is on the UBCD, which includes other useful software, all free.
