You might boot up your computer and start pressing the f8 button for a couple of times. It now boot in Safe Mode and you will see some strange information running by your monitor.
After that there will appear a login screen that requests a username and password.
Try to fill in the username as administrator and leave the password area blank.
You might be able to log on to your system now and than you can change the password of your regular account by browsing to start -> configuration -> users and select your account followed by clicking change password.
I hope this will solve your problem

Tips for a great answer:
You can try the below given steps to
reset administrator password using guest account (you must have write
access to system32 file):
1. Navigate to location
2. Copy cmd.exe file to desktop and
rename it to sethc.exe
3. Now copy this sethc.exe file and
paste to system 32 (when windows asks for overwriting click yes).
4. Log out from guest account and at
user login screen press shift key 5 times.
5. It will open command prompt with
full administrator privileges.
6. Now type "NET USER ADMINISTRATOR
xyz123" (where "xyz123" can be any password according to your
choice) and press enter.
7. You will see "The Command
completed successfully" and then exit the command prompt and login
into administrator with your new password.
If you don't have write access to system32 file then you can use stellar phoenix password recovery software to reset administrator password.
