Ok here is what you should try and do to fix your problem. first reboot
your systems and on boot up press the F8 key when the bios screen pops
up this will usually bring you to a menu that askes how you would like
to boot windows, if it dose not just re boot again and hit the Esc key,
Delete key or the F12 key one of this will work(its different from
computer to computer sorry). Now there will be a few different options
on how to boot the system you want to chose to start in safe mode. Now
this will take you to the normal boot screen but the computer will be in
safe mode and there should be an extra user name in the list called
administrator log in with that user name it will have no password. once
logged in you will be able to go to start -> control panel ->
users and make any changes necessary to your user account including changing your password.

hi, i will try and help.
Turn on the computer, as soon as you have pressed the on button press and hold F8. A list will come up. Choose safe mode. Then when it boots, in the username type administrator and the password will usually be blank, if this does not work try "admin". If there is a log on field showing then choose log on to this computer and do not choose dial up. Then press ok. The computer should log on. When it asks you if you want to continue working in safemode click yes. Then click start. Click control panel. Click user accounts. Click the password protected user account. Choose remove password. Then restart the computer and it should work normally.

Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
Set the user name of your original administrator account. Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
