    Most probably you can't restore password unless you boot up in 'Safe mood' and change the password (easiest solution). Also this trick doesn't work if you've a password set for administrator so you would have to format your lappy.

    Maybe you should try this ?

    Just googled it - no experience with this method though

    but I think you have nothing to lose ;)
