    well i use this tool when I forget my password

    http://www.loginrecovery.com/

    it won't reset the password but instead reveal it, as long as you know what you are doing it's a safe tool sometimes in rare cases data do get lost so use it at your own risk

    You can go in safemode i think its F8, run cmd type in net user USERNAME *
    that will allow you to set a new password.
    if that doesn't work PM me, and I will point you in the right direction.

    or if you have nothing important in it, just format and reinstall the Windows and all programs. :D
