Just hit the Cancel button and login. Then ask do a search for:
*.pwl

Look for the pwl file that has your username in it. Delete that and logout. Then login to the account you forgot the password for. It won't have a password this time...

Hope that helps!

open your computer, and remove the processor. I can't remember how long you have to wait, (?15 min, 1 hr) but this little trick erases your password, so you can start from scratch.
