On bootup press F8 and choose safe mode.

When this has booted select the Administrator account.

From there you will be able to go to Control Panel - user accounts and change your User Account passwaord.

You can access the Built-In administrator account in normal mode...

Just press and hold "Ctrl + Alt" and press "Delete" twice and then type in Administrator and press enter.... (obviously you do this on the welcome screen... lol)
