Insert OS cd in drive and start reinstalling by selecting repair mode now once all files are loaded system will reboot when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10
this will give you access to your account also you can reset all passwords
Now restart lappy and let the system boot normally without OS cd in drive
now you will come to old screen and previously configured desktop with all intact aplication and icons on desktop and it will no more ask you for password till you set a new one

Thanks and regards

Ophcrack LiveCD is the easiest and most effective Windows password recovery freeware that I've ever found to "crack" your forgotten Windows password.<br />Since you can't login your Windows PC because you lost the password, so first you'll need to visit Ophcrack's website to download ophcrack LiveCD. Please make sure that if you've forgotten Windows 7 password or Vista password, click on ophcrack Vista LiveCD. If you've forgotten XP password, click on ophcrack XP LiveCD.<br /> 2. Cain & AbelUnlike Ophcrack and other popular Windows password recovery programs,<b><span> </span>Cain & Abel</b><span> </span>requires access to Windows under an administrator account. In fact, Cain & Abel is a bit more complicated to use than other password recovery tools which is usually unavailable for Windows Vista as is said.<br />If you have no way of getting in to your Windows PC, you will not be able to use Cain & Abel to recover your password. Moreover, before you can use Cain & Abel, you'll need to download a rainbow table. These large databases of passwords are required so Cain & Abel can reset the forgotten windows password.<br /> 3. Available Admin AccountIt's well known that Windows administrator users have rights to change password of other user account on the same computer. So if you forgot password of the user account, just enter your administrator account and do as follows:<br /> <ul> <li>1.

Windows Password Reset DiskIt is considered the easiest way to reset Windows password when you are forbiddened to access your laptop with protected password. However, many of us haven't enough consciousness on creating a Windows password reset disk before they lost the password.<br /> <ul> <li>1. Type a wrong password on the Windows logon screen.</li> <li>2. Click<span> </span><b>OK</b><span> </span>when Windows displays a message that the password is incorrect and "Reset password" link will appear.</li> <li>3. Click<span> </span><b>Reset password</b><span> </span>to pop up Password Reset Wizard screen, and then click<span> </span><b>Next</b>.</li> <li>4. Follow the steps in the Password Reset Wizard to create a new password.</li></ul><b>Note:</b>This solution takes effect provided you have created a Windows password reset disk for your Windows account in advance.<br /> 5. Typing Ctrl + Alt + Del (Only Under Windows XP)This option is only for Windows XP. Furthermore, the default administrator account on Windows XP is enabled and not password protected by default, which is disabled by default on Windows 7 and Vista.<br /> <ul> <li>1. Turn on your Windows XP machine and go to its logon screen.</li> <li>2. Press<span> </span><b>Ctrl+ Alt +Del</b><span> </span>twice to pop up the classic logon box.</li> <li>3.
