Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista and you mean the windows log on password, if there is
another user account with administrator privileges you can log in at
this account, and go through settings - control panel - user accounts in
order to change the password for your account.
If there isn't another user account with administrator privileges, you have to download the utility (in zip format) from this link. Extract it and burn the included iso at a cd. Boot the pc from the cd and follow the on screen steps in order to reset password.
