There are some websites that show ways of recovering a lost password, but
these can be daunting and require advanced knowledge and skills.
The best method I have found is the following commercial software. You can
install the product on any
computer, create a boot CD, DVD, floppy disk, or USB stick and then take
that boot disk to your PC and run it. When you boot from the disk, it has
very easy instructions to find and remove the password on any account on the
Windows Password Recovery Software. Reset Administrator Password.
