Hello again,
When you press f8, you should use the arrow keys to scroll up to select safe mode and then press enter.
Once booted up, you need to go to control panel, User accounts. Then you select the user that you want to change the password. When you click on it, you will see several links, one of them to change password.

It should be pretty straightforward from then on.
However, let me know if you have any problems.
