Do you have another administrative account you can log in with?

is it within a domain?
if not -> did you set password hints?

is the disk bitlocker encrypted?
if not -> boot with another os (e.g. from cd or usb) and backup data

if you are talking of standalone machine and you do not have any other account to login then you can boot with help of below disk and reset your local account passwords

Go here and burn to CD.
Boot from CD and follow prompts to reset password.

I would strongly recommend the same tool that Anuroopsundd and Spartan_1337 both posted already, but the following tutorial may help you understand how to utilize it properly:

If you are trying to reset a Windows 7 local password and/or enable an account, download the freeware ISO file from here...

Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

After you have burned that ISO to disc, boot up into the Linux environment and reset your password.  I have been using this utility to help people with their forgotten Windows passwords for over ten years, and unless the hard drive has actually been encrypted it has worked every time! Here is a comprehensive tutorial on how to utilize it:

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ss/ontpre-screenshot-guide-p2.htm

There are two important steps within that tutorial that warrant extra attention:

- When you reach the User Edit Menu stage of the process it's best to select "1" to Clear (blank) user password.  You can always change the password to something more secure after you successfully log into Windows with the blank password.

- When you reach Step FOUR: Writing back changes, you will be queried with About to write file(s) back! Do it? [n].  If you inadvertently pressed Enter on this screen the changes won’t go into effect.  You need to specifically type "y" first for the updates to be written to the operating system.
