Did you create your password reset disk before? (Never heard about it) It is said that this is the best way to prevent you into the forgotten windows password disaster. So how to create a password reset disk?
Here it is. Before creating a password reset disk you have to prepare these:
1. A floppy disk drive.
2.A blank floppy disk.
3.A computer with Windows OS.
4.Less than 5 minutes of time.
5.A sober brain.
Anyway I am sure I am not qualified with No.5 sober brain. You can have a try and tell me it works well or not.

Suggestion 3: FREE recovery tool Offline NT Password &Registry Editor
This is a utility to reset Windows login password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your NT system. You do not need to know the old Windows password to set a new one. It works offline, that is, you have to shut down your computer and boot off a floppy disk or CD. It'll detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled out user accounts. It is also an almost fully functional registry editor.
But it doesn't offer any help or support if it goes wrong, quite risky, huh, because it’s free! What did you expect for free? You can’t really complain.
