If the pc is joined to a domain just hit ctl+alt+del and select change password. If it is just a workstation go to start > control panel > user accounts > manage user accounts > highlight the user in question and select change password.

MCSA2003, it is a home pc, and I cannot go to start, etc because I don't remember my user password.

You can try to restart the computer and hit the F8 key and select safe mode and when it loads try to login with the admin account with no password. If this does not work you are going to be out of luck and may need to reload the system. I am not for sure if they have any software out yet that would allow you to bypass/change the password as they have for windows xp. The OS is just too new yet.
