Currently SQL Server 2008 still supports two types validation and authentication for access link to resources database, Windows authentication mode and SQL Server and Windows authentication mode which also known as mixed mode. Both of these authentication methods provide access to SQL Server 2008 and its resources.

The Mixed Mode - SQL Server and Windows Authentication Mode

SQL Server and Windows Authentication Mode uses either Active Directory user accounts or SQL Server accounts when validating access to SQL Server. SQL Server 2005 introduces a new way, the policy of the password and account lockout the policy session of SQL Server by using SQL Server implement authentication. SQL Server 2008 also to do so. The policy of SQL Server that can be used include password complexity, password expiration and account lockout. This feature is not available in SQL Server 2000 and becomes a major security risk for most organizations and database administrators. In essence, this weakness has contributed to the Windows authentication set as best practice for the management of authentication in the past. Today, SQL Server and Windows authentication mode may be able to successfully compete with the Windows Authentication Mode.

* 4. In the Password box, type the new password.

The type of client connections determines the choice of security mode. If all of the incoming clients support trusted connections, you can use Windows Authentication Mode. If some clients do not support trusted connections, you can select Mixed Mode.

According to Microsoft, System administrator (sa) is a special login provided for backward compatibility. By default, it is assigned to the sysadmin fixed server role and cannot be changed. Although sa is a built-in administrator login, do not use it routinely. Instead, make system administrators members of the sysadmin fixed server role, and have them log on using their own logins. Use sa only when there is no other way to log in to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

This isn't a password login problem - the User Profile Service service failed the logon because it's corrupted. Try to login in Safe Mode and access your account from there . If you can then retrieve all your files while you still can and prepare yourself for a reinstall.
If you can't then you will have to use a Linux Live-Cd like

Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
