Grab a copy of ERD commander via internet or torrent from your trusted link, I'll provide my link soon. Lets take a look at quick guide to reset windows password.

Insert the ERD commander disk and boot your PC, make sure that boot from CD is marked as first priority in Boot device menu.
In the pop up box select the System root, in my case its C:\WINDOWS
Now click on Start button > System Tools > Locksmith
It'll begin the Locksmith wizard. Click next on the first window

Now select the account type, and put any easy password like 123. Remember its not your final password, it'll help you only to logged into the account next time when you reboot the PC.

Click Finish and you're done.

Now eject the disk and reboot your PC.

Login to your account with the new password which you just reset. There It'll ask to reset password, here you can enter whatever password you want as your final password.
Note: ERD commander will work fine on windows XP, Vista, but not work well on all the versions of Windows 7. So if you're planning hack or reset the windows 7 password then it'll may not work however its worth giving a try.
