Lost admin password

I seem to have forgotten my admin accounts password, how would I reset
it? I'm on a limited account on the same computer and cannot download
anything. Please help-- I have a lot of important documents and such
saved on said account.

To accomplish what Brink has referred you to will require that you
have a CD burner program that will handle .ISO files. If you don't
have one, you most likely will NOT be able to install one without your
password (my sister recently had this exact same problem, and I had to
make the CD for her and mail it to her).

Let us know.
