1. Log on with the account you have now.
2. Go to Start -> Run and type: cmd
3. When the CMD prompt opens, type the following:

net user Administrator <any password>

4. Press enter. A message should appear. Something like task completed or operation succesfull.

5. Close the screen, log off user.

6. Try logging in as Administrator again.

Where <any password> should be replaced with the password of your choice and types without the brackets. Also mind the spaces between the words. CMD assumes the word after the user accounts name is the password, but only when the user accounts name and the password are seperated by a space.

I hope this will answer your question, please don't forget to rate this solution.

    When trying to log in as Administrator again, use the password you just entered.

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.
