I do not remember one of two logins to remote desktop rdp godaddy.com dedicated no control panel windows server 2008

I can not ask godaddy because there is no control pannel

I just used saved password with remote destktop

in order to change password, I am prompted for old password

but if I delete user, I could lose my connection

should I create new user and delete current user

You don't have the password is fine since it is saved in the RDP session, I hope that you have access to your server, once you logged in, type lusrmgr.msc and select the user you want to change password and right click and select the option set password and supply your new password, here it dont ask the old credentials.
