Hello CRAIG,
with little info you offered, I'll have to assume 2 things:
1. You don not have another administrator account set up in the
computer.
2. You do not have a Password Reset Disk.
Based on that, you have only ONE choice, other than reinstalling vista.
Click on the link at the end of this post.**** ONLY Method Three *****
is applicable for you.

RE: lost my password
Download the Ophcrack Live CD(477MBs) from the link.
Burn the ISO image to a CD.

http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/

Reboot in the lost password computer, and it will find it for you.

Hello Craig,
Go back to the first reply I gave you. Do you see at the end of the
post the following words : Reset User Account Password ? If you do,
that is the link. Click on it and it will lead you to the tutorial.
