Do you have another user account with administrator rights? You could try to use this to reset the local administrator password - go into User Accounts.

It is possible to restore your PC back to the time before you changed the password if you can remember what the previous password was - have a look at item 2 in this article which explains how to do it.

There are many password reset tools out there. I have also forgotten Windows password a few days ago, I managed to reset Windows password using password recovery bundle. I wish it also works for you. Good luck!

Vista and Windows 7 allow you to create a password reset disk, which enables you to reset your password without much hassle. The problem with this option is that you have to create the reset disk before the password is lost.
