I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I assume its the Windows password that you have forgotten - see
Hi mikeo,

If you get to the login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Enter username Administrator and password might be either blank or password. If you can login to Windows, you can change the other account's password.

If not...

I would suggest downloading a app named EBCD. Burn to CD and boot with it. It creates a Linux permission with which you can change the Administrator's password. If you can change that and login to Windows, you can change the other account's password.
