I can't remember the password for my administrator account!!

I can't remember the password to the administrator account on my laptop.  I don't have a recovery disk either.  How can I reset my password?  I don't care if I have to do a complete reboot and lose any info.

Hi,

 

You should be able to do this without losing any data - try using a password reset utility such as the free application on the link below.
