is a way to recover my password.

Try Elcomsoft System Recovery:

http://www.elcomsoft.com/esr.html

This is a bootable CD (or you can create bootable USB flash drive) that
allows
to reset or change passwords of any users including Admin, unlock/enable
locked/disabled accounts, give Admin privileges to regular accounts and
more.
In some cases, original password can be recovered almost instantly, so you
don't even have to reset it. Alternatively, you can dump password hashes to
USB flas and run the recovery on another machine (though that may be time-
consuming).
