If you have accessibility options enabled and no hard disk encryption, try this...

Boot to installation media and get a cmd prompt

run the following commands:
copy c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe.old
copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe

reboot

When prompted to login, click the accessibility button (bottom left) and place a check next to screen magnifier.  This should launch a command prompt window with system level privs.  You can now *safely* change the administrator's password.

There are some other way to reset Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB.
