The default Administrator account has been disabled by default and the user account is the only one with the password.

The other thing is there are recovery options but I bet you haven't created a USB disk of any sort for password recovery.

There are other pieces of software that I have used on Windows 7 and as the kernel is similar between Windows 7 & Windows 8, I don't see how it won't work.

It's a linux based tool

I can't give you the CD because it's not allowed for upload.  Please give me a place to upload it for you.

I used Ophcrack in the past; I am not sure if EE will agree with it or not.
But it is a free tool.

Use a diffrent computer to login to the Gmail website and recover/reset the password. Turn on the new laptop making sure it is connected to the internet and login with the new password.

But is the computer password same as the gmail password...  In that case, it will work otherwise you will need a password reset to access the SAM.
